Why do you forum post or blog?
Brief question:

What is it that drives all of you to continue posting on forums or posting your blogs or commenting in the comments sections on the internet?

I have no idea.

Why do you?

It's a humanitarian thing: People benifit from exposure to my genius.

Edit: Is something still concited if it's said in jest?

Soulless mutants of muscle and intent. There are billions of us; hardy, smart and dangerous. Shaped by millions of years of death. We are the definitive alpha predator. We build monsters of fire and stone. We bottled the sun. We nailed our god to a stick.

In man's struggle against the world, bet on the man.

I suppose I like hammering out thoughts in discussion, or even exploring ideas with people.

By the way, I'm directing this question to all the forums I go to, not just this one.

I asked myself this about a week ago.

On this forum?

I reply mainly when the previous post (To which I am replying) seems to be positing something so far removed from what I consider 'normal' or the post seems so far removed from reality.

Or some times for the lulz.... Tongue

Much cheers to all.

Humans are social. Forum = place to shoot the shit. Also easy to introduce yourself and find like-minded people, as compared to real life where for a start you have to be in the same place as them and secondly they look at you funny.

Not a cool response.

Just saying.

Great question, thanks.

For me, I'm a typoholic, addicted to the sound of my own voice. No, wait, I mean I am His Flatulence Sri Baba Bozo and I am a great imaginary sage saving the world from itself and so on. Yea, that.

Almost all my typing is on forums, as there is at least a chance of a sustained discussion on some intelligent topic. I pretty much hate Facebook and Twitter etc, as they seem formats specifically designed to build huge piles of little random nothing comments.

Even though I've been working online for 20 years, I've never really had a real blog, as I am apparently too lazy to do the marketing needed to create an audience, and I'm not that interested in a one-to-many give a speech type format. I like dialog, action, interaction, combat, kiss and make up, back and forth, challenge and counter challenge.

Actually, I just like words. As many as possible it appears. :-)

RE: Why do you forum post or blog?
Mostly it's the internet's never ending capacity for smartassery. That side of my personality is not as well received in other spheres of life, lol. My forum use is related to my interests, what I'm looking for is a good community. I was on a guitar forum ten years ago that eventually went under. It was the best group of folks I've stumbled across on the internet, it just had the right vibe. It's like when people tell you they're looking for a "church home," I sort of feel that way about forums. When you find a good one, with a good group of folks the unifying topic isn't as important. This place is really growing on me!
