Hey everyone! I started blogging about two months ago. Since, then, I’ve noticed that there seem to be several reasons people blog. Some use their blogs as a sort of online diary or journal. Some use it to show off talents in cooking and recipes, photography, clothing design, etc. Some use it to discuss religious beliefs and ideas. And then there are those, such as myself, who use blogging as a way to communicate, educate, inform, and spread ideas that we feel are important to society and culture.
