For a while I’ve been thinking about why I enjoy blogging. The reasons I created this weblog remain, but I’ve discovered more and different reasons over time. My approach has changed substantially since my second posting posed the question: Are blogs the vanity press of the Internet?

Since I’ve read and enjoyed many blogger top ten lists, I plan to write this list as a series of posts. As I write them, I’ll link them back from here for future reference. In chronological order:

#1: participatory geekiness
#2: gender issues
#3: giving back
#4: reverse search engine
#5: thinking practice: language is the vehicle of thought
#6: marking the passage of time
#7: writing practice: just do it
#8: finding my voice: just do it

What do you think?
