In an age of aggregated destination sites, social medias and those URLs you have bookmarked so that you can check them seventeen times per day to see what’s new, the inevitable question for a guy like me is “why bother going alone?” Why do I spend my own time & money maintaining a personal blog, barely read, and infrequently visited? I’ve asked that question of myself many times, so I’m going to dedicate a few short posts to explaining my own reasons. First, and most simply, I’m going to hang it out there as the most obvious reason: I do this because I enjoy it. It’s my hobby. It’s my passion. It’s like asking a runner why he runs or a gamer why she games. It’s fun for me. I like to write and like to create new things, and if this ever became a burden or a chore, you’d know… because I’d stop.
