1. I have some ideas and opinions, I would talk everyone’s head off. With a blog, people can opt in if they want to hear it. (But I hope you opt in by following.)
2. Blogging helps me improve my writing skills.
3. It makes me think more deeply about things. When I blog about TV shows, I have to think the issues through and that helps me to appreciate the show more. See Premium Cable Reviews
4. I learn a lot about a lot of different topics. When I did the news Print Poetry 2012 project, I had to read the newspaper every day thoroughly and sometimes I did further research on a story because I got interested in the topic.
