Why Blog? Ask American Idol

From David Osmond, a failed contestant on American Idol: “I wish I had the opportunity to share what’s inside of me.”

I think that’s exactly the driving force behind blogging.

I used to teach introductory psychology. Large lecture class. I found I could often put whatever I was thinking about in the morning into my lecture. Blogging is easier.

More Jonathan Schwarz puts it like this: We have “desperation to express what our existence is like. Sometimes this comes out literally as singing, sometimes metaphorically.”

  1. Not all people feel a desperation to express what their existence is like. I certainly don’t. (In fact, I almost didn’t bother to post this fact about what my existence is like, but then I realized that selection bias would automatically tend to screen out individuals like me from making such comments. Down with selection bias!)
