What is your motivation for blogging?

First and foremost I blog to communicate ideas.  My first audience was myself when I started at Livejournal years and years ago, and my scope has grown larger and larger based on what projects I'm involved with.  I've tried blogging for money before (paid position, not like Pay Per Post), and as passionate as I was about the topic, I never felt very comfortable (I don't blog well under a deadline).  But my biggest motivation is that I have a bad memory...I'll forget my thought processes and troubles and successes all too easily, so blogging is a way for me to document what's in my head so I can have an opportunity to go back and reflect on those experiences.

What is your motivation for blogging?

I blog to stay sane. In grade school, we journaled so much and I began to miss that.  Sharing a journal with the rest of the world sounds like a pretty neat concept to me, so you can gear what you are writing about to interest others but still be random and personal.  Even though blogging is a release, I think there's also that underlying possibility of being "discovered" with blogging, whether its someone wanting you to blog more because they like your writing style, or finding a job where your brand of creativity would be appreciated.

I found many geek t-shirts in my closet, so that encouraged me to pick up blogging.  I have a corresponding G33k shirTz album on MySpace.
