Matthew asks why we blog (or don’t blog). Well, this elephant started blogging when she wanted to colate some of the research she had been doing over the summer of 2006. Then, after that summer, she found herself 1) with a lot of time on her hands, and 2) missing the law (totally sad and nerdy, she knows). So she began to broadcast her thoughts into the ether of the internet, wherein she enjoys a marginally more attentive audience than that given to her by the dust bunnies underneath her bed.
The side effects of blogging have been fun – getting to know y’all, organising my thoughts, stalking Free Expression professors, providing a convenient medium for others to stalk her, and being thought male (or gender-indeterminate, apparently) by roughly half of the internet world.
Given that this blogging (or blawging, on occaison) venture was predicated on having an excess of free time, which will not be the case come May (and bar-studying), this pachyderm may find herself in the “why we don’t blog” category.
Neil has a great post on blogging.
