Why start a blog?

I've been thinking about starting a blog for a while, and after giving it some thought, I came up with three reason:

1.) Accountability: I don't know this for sure, but if you're forced to type about it and make it public, then you're probably more likely to do something.  And after it's out in the open, other people can keep you accountable.

2.) Record keeping: Occasionally I'd like to look back and see things that I've done and remember the details.  Keeping a written record of what worked and what caused epic explosions on the run seems like a pretty good idea.

3.) Keep in touch: As I travel through this crazy world, you inevitably meet lots of people.  Instead of sending out tons of different messages and emails, it'll be nice to just link them to this website.

4.) Meeting cool people: I'm always looking to meet awesome people.  I think everyone has some kind of interesting story to tell.  When I started reading blogs, I actually ended up meeting some pretty cool people IRL, so I figure it's time to pay it forward.

So there it is.  I'm hoping that, unlike many other blogs, updating this becomes a regular thing for me.  If it dies, it dies, but here's my best attempt.
