Why Am I Blogging?

Good question – especially because I haven’t been an avid reader of blogs and I don’t think I’ve written a blog post (ever). There’s a first for everything, I suppose.

If I were to boil it down, I suppose this is why I’m trying to get into this whole “blogging thing:”

  • Keep In Contact. From what I hear, law school is not only an intellectual challenge (“journey”), but also a challenge in time management, especially as it relates to maintaining relationships. I figured that this would be a good way to keep in touch with those who want to know what I’m up to, what I’m thinking about, and what I’m learning about. Not to mention, this would be an easy way to post some random thoughts to keep everyone up-to-date (and to avoid those uncomfortable “catch up” phone calls).
  • Writing Practice. If others are reading what I’m writing, this is an added stress to be sure I’m writing clearly and coherently. Past communication has been limited to being strictly informal (e.g. emails and text messages), and writing in a public blog (versus private, password-protected journals) causes me to edit my entries with this added focus. Not saying this will be my best writing, but, a step, right?
  • A Break. Those that know me also know that I’m not one to sit around and watch TV. The ideal “break” for me is something that is productive. This provides me an opportunity to synthesize and reflect on what’s going on, while also being somewhat productive – writing up my opinions to start an online conversation.
