The Who Knows

My blog's gotten over 8,000 page views in the month of January.  Such tremendous support.  Thank you!  But it gets me thinking: Why am I doing this?  The virtual recognition is encouraging, but the flighty feeling flutters away in a day or two.  I'm not in it for the money, which is virtually nonexistent.  Why do I keep doing it?

I like this quote from PBS Idea Channel:

Where older cultural systems exist for basically profit, internet culture exists for... it's really hard to say.  Maybe pure expression?  Maybe altruistic entertainment?  Who knows? 

 

It's the who knows that attracts me.  That's what makes blogging so exciting and so rewarding.  I get to explore the who knows.
