Why blog?

I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon, give in to peer pressure, and become a blogger. Devin has been trying to get me to blog for our food review site for a long time. I was not very interested in it at first but since I have a little more time on my hands this summer, I have been spending my spare time studying others’ blogs. For kicks I like to cruise around linked blogs just to see who knows who. I guess you’d be surprised that with a student body of 30,000+ at BYU, you can constantly find that somehow your good friend is friends with a girl that used to work with your sister (etc., etc.).

So why blog? Why me? Well, I guess it comes from what I call being “blogger frustrated.” It’s a mixture of disappointment (from clicking on your top five frequented blogs for the zillionth time during the week to find that same “tagged” posting from 17 days ago), boredom (you can only clean, do laundry, and study for so many hours a day), and at times, slight irritation (for those who find it fun to take over my computer with your current favorite song so I cannot hear my play list playing). So here it comes! My rants (c’mon, you didn’t think I’d leave the soap box in the closet for this one)! My raves (there’s something good out there right?)! My news (or lack thereof)!And whatever else seems to be fitting for the time being.

So here is my pledge: At least one posting a week. I’ve already got a few ideas of what I want to talk about and hopefully the ideas will keep coming.So stay tuned.Leave comments.Ask a question.And please, PLEASE tell me if I do something stupid (like make the font only a half a shade darker than the background so you can only read it if you highlight it).
