Why Blog? – A Place to Speak One’s Mind

Photographer and blogger Kirk Tuck, in summing up his 2018, wrote:

Everyone should have at least one safe space in which to be archly and profoundly opinionated.

I’m not sure if Kirk was writing tongue in cheek. In any event, I always look forward to his posts.

Kirk’s blog is called the Visual Science Lab. He’s been blogging since 2009 and has more than 1,300 followers.

Given all that has happened, 2018 now seems like a long time ago. I wonder what the next two years will bring our way.

Why Blog? – ‘You just might want to say hello’

What motivates people to blog? The late Nora Ephron (1941 – 2012) writing on HuffPost in 2006 explained that:

getting heard outside the world of blogs occasionally requires that you have something to say. And one of the most delicious things about the profoundly parasitical world of blogs is that you don’t have to have anything much to say. Or you just have to have a little tiny thing to say. You just might want to say hello. I’m here. And by the way. On the other hand. Nevertheless. Did you see this? Whatever. A blog is sort of like an exhale. What you hope is that whatever you’re saying is true for about as long as you’re saying it. Even if it’s not much.

Among her many accomplishments, Ephron wrote the script for the lovely romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally.

I hope to share other answers to this question.
