I have now started speaking. I'm not really sure who to. So I started thinking...

What is a blog? Why would someone Blog? Who would read a blog? Is it really a blog if no one reads it? Someone who blogs is called a blogger. Are you a blogger? I am a blogger. Really a blog is an online journal, my husband refuses to create a blog because he doesn't want to make an online journal. So really he doesn't want to blog, although he really does. He tells me things he wants to write about, and insists it would not be an online journal. Really he would write about things in his life revolving around education, He is a teacher so basically he wants to make an online journal.

Does it help anyone to blog? Am I saving the world, or just myself? I read blogs; my friends have blogs, I have blogs. It's a nice way to keep track of all the things happening in someone's life. I have a blog that share my designs and another blog that shares all the crafts I make for my friends and family. They can be called websites, but they are just blogs. A blog is an online journal.

What happens if no one reads this blog? Will it just disappear? Will it only be seen by me? Will someone accidentally open this website and find this message and decide to start blogging? Will this entry make someone hate blogging even more than before? Does this blog actually exist? Does it exist for you or just for me?

If no one reads this blog does it count as an online journal? Is it really a blog?
