Help! I’m a blogger!

I hadn’t noticed until this week, but I appear to have become a blogger. In the past, I’ve always thought of blogging as a bit of a waste of time.And yet I now have four blogs – this one, Chocablog, Endiet and now my Fotonomy Photography Blog.I’m not sure why I’ve ended up going down the blogging route. I don’t actively enjoy writing like some people I could mention and I can never think of anything interesting to say about myself. In fact, I can rarely think of anything interesting to say about anything.But what I have found is that given a clear and concise topic, I find it fairly easy to churn out a decent length post in about half an hour. The difficult part is coming up with a subject that’s interesting enough to share with complete strangers.Apart from the horror of describing myself as a ‘blogger’, the other thing I’ve noticed is just how predictable my writing style can be. I tend to re-use certain words over and over. I really, really use the word “really” far too much, and I’m constantly overusing parentheses (I really don’t know why).I’m interested to know why other people blog. What do you get out of it? Is it the satisfaction of having done something creative? And are you happy with your own writing style?
