I blog because I need a way to vent, a way to express myself, a way to ensure my posterity. I’ve tried other ways but none accomplish quite the same thing. I can vent through meditation, reading, listening to music, doing Taoist Tai Chi, doing other physical tasks or activities; I can express myself through poetry, and speech, and action; I can ensure my posterity by socializing (so that I’ve met people and they will hopefully remember me), and by doing my best in my future career. I have tried achieving the same effect by writing in a handwritten journal (which well being an excellent way to vent and to express myself is too flimsy to ensure my posterity–and to anybody who knows my handwriting it’s not exactly the most uplifting experience trying to read over it), and by typing in a Microsoft Word document (which we’ll again being an excellent way to vent and express myself does not have the guarantee of always being available to the public. Blogging does, blogging allows acquaintances to get to know me better, my friends and family to develop insight, it allows me to vent, express myself, and know that it will always be available. Blogging in short is a very effective coping technique that accomplishes personal prosperity in a public forum.
