Why blog

Simone often says the link is the ultimate blog love language. And I like her blog. I especially like commenting specifically when she’s tried to be vague about a situation I’m familiar with.  This particular post questions why people blog. I put my answer there. 

It went something like this:

“I blog for a few reasons – to track and log my thoughts, because I think the internet is full of crazy things that need documenting, and because I want space for my rants. 

Oh, and sometimes it’s because I think I actually have something useful to say – often that’s either about PR or coffee. 

My blog has an incredibly broad scope though – sometimes I think I should narrow it and have different blogs for different topics.”

So commenters – why do you blog? And if you don’t why don’t you? Do you think my scope isn’t clearly defined enough? I do have 16 categories.

The author

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the pastor of City South Presbyterian Church, a church in Brisbane, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus. If you'd like to support his writing financially you can do that by giving to his church.

  1. One blog’s enough. You don’t need a scope. I mean sure, if that’s what some people want- eg. a fashion blog, a theology blog, whatever- that’s fine. But for people who just want a personal blog I think it’s perfectly fine for it to have a broad scope… it’s an accurate reflection of life.
