To blog or not to blog?

Well, it's been about 2 months since I've posted anything on here. I find that it's hard to blog for many reasons.

1. Those of you who read this are also people I see and/or talk to on a fairly regular basis. It's much easier to update you in person than to write about it.
2. Shannon has mentioned this before, and I agree, that Twitter has taken away from things I would normally blog about. I'm all about the quickness and efficiency that 140 characters has to offer.
3. Baby brain has gotten the best of me. By the time I think about something I want to blog about, I've forgotten it.

So, what do you guys think? Is it worth it? For those of you that have blogs, what are your reasons for keeping them?

I don't really keep up with my twitter like I used to and I still let a month pass before blogging again.

One of my reasons for trying to keep it up is the idea of being able to go back and read it later to see what was going on in my life at any given moment.

I also think it will be neat for our little girl to read through the posts. I bet she'll think it's neat.

I think blogging serves a couple purposes. One, it can be used to let other people know what's going on in your life, or just in your head. Two, it can be, like Jeramie said, a sort of diary that you can go back and read later.

So, I think you should keep it up, even if it is sporadic. You'll probably appreciate it later.

I agree. For me, blogging is mainly an outlet for my thoughts. I like to write and don't use twitter, so when something interesting happens or I have a question or insight, I like to put it out there. Hopefully, even the sporadic things we right will impact people.

The cool thing about google reader is, even if its been 2 months since your last post... I still get notified when you write something.

So, my advice, if you have something to write, write, but don't force it.
