  • Who is a blogger here? Why?

    I know there are some bloggers here, at least Paburo, Oroshi and Kenzan. There are certainly other, and I ask this simple question: Why?

    I certainly won't start any blog in the next years, because I have nothing interresting to write, especially if the whole planet can read it.

    In my special case is a sort of "journal".

    The objective is for everyone to read and see thought the eyes of a beginner how is the "way of the sword" in a country where you can't find dojos everywhere. It also helps me out to think about what I've done, to express desires and what I have achieved.

    It is written in Spanish because for me it's very important to make things "available" to other like myself.

      Used to be a blogger, now I have a myspace. In that case, I think is more complete and easy to use...

        I'm using the word "blogger" as "somebody who as a personnal internet page", myspace included.

            I blog on my own myspace page. But i use it as a way to feed my inner badness. Many things on my blog is kind of ghetto and negative thinking & cocky. But it helps satisfy my aggressive nature. Therefore i don't realy share it.

            However, Kenzan has a really nice blog/journal, very inspiring...when he's not backyard ninjer hunting j/k bro.

            I saw your myspace page, Lady kitsune -- it's pretty good.

                I blog because I want a record of my training, and I'd like to hear what people think of it and any suggestions they might have. Comment, please!

                    My blog is mainly for documenting my slow progression, collecting pics of cool dogs, and some of my favorite foods.

                    hehe I like to eat

                      I have multiple websites and stuff like that... even started a blog or 2 but I prefer forums mostly as I don't take care of myspace-facebook-Yahoo 360 type of pages too well. I maintain a couple of actual web sites so most of the time I spend taking care of those instead of personal stuff. I started the personal ones mostly because friends of mine asked me to.

                        1. Because I already blogged for other reasons.

                        2. Because I find it encourages me to sit down and think about my training in a different context. Finding my way through my training experience in words is another way of cementing what I've learned -- of integrating it into the whole that is my life.

                        3. I don't do anything on my blog for other people, specifically. I write things and have fun when I have conversations based on what I wrote. Sometimes an issue will come up elsewhere and I use my blog to further the discussion by posting pictures or linking videos.

                        4. I blog because with 10 hours a week of budo and 45 hours at work, I have precious little time for face-to-face contact where I'm not practicing how to hurt people.

                          Because I'm too lazy to hand write things :P

                          I also like designing a layout...

                            I blog because I like typing out my thoughts for all to see. On my blog, I usually talk about my Kendo practice or anything Kendo related that I feel is important to me. It would really be enhanced if I were to get replies on my blogs, but this is more for me so it's not that big of a deal.

                              I keep a video game related blog at I blog because I want to comment on events that happen within the industry and have people comment on them, it's really that simple. On the rare occasions that I blog about life in general It's usually just impersonal crap, I actually rather disagree with people whining about their life on the internet. I mean, who the hell cares?
