A couple of months ago, a friend of mine posted about why she blogs. Then posed the question to her readers - why do you blog? I've been meaning to answer that question here since she posed it and only got around to it tonight -- more than four months later. Months in which I've been unusually quiet in this space. Now I'm not sure whether the question ought to be why do you blog or why don't you, but I imagine the answers are intimately intertwined.
