I have seen The Question "why do you blog?" asked around the internet since I first logged on in 2006.
I always felt the question should be "what drew you to blogging?"
As different as we all are online, we share one thing: we were pulled to the internet for our communication, we sought something in addition to our "real lives."
On Friday, August 3, 2012, at 10:30 a.m., I'm excited to be part of a BlogHer Opening Day Panel at BlogHer '12: "Blogging For The Love of It." I can hardly believe I'll be alongside the smart and very readable Bon Stewart of Crib Chronicles, as moderator, and also sitting next to the awesome Dorothy Snarker [pseudonym] of the hugely popular pop culture blog, Dorothy Surrenders.
We will be having an open discussion on Blogging: Where is it going, Where is its future, What is the personal bloggers place in the blogging world? We'll talk about divides among bloggers, should they exist? Are there two different types of bloggers? Can we be both?
I'd love to hear about you: what brought you to blogging? What call did you hear that you planted your stake in this once wild west.
If you're at the BlogHer '12 conference in NYC, please come and say hi. I hope to see you at our panel discussion on opening day; my vision is that you will leave feeling your value, your contribution, your place, in the blogosphere as a personal blogger.
