Why blog?

Because everyone else is doing it.

Because writers are expected to do it.

Because Sister Mary Immaculate said I had problems with peer pressure and she was right.

  1. Why blog? In my life it’s what Steven Pressfield in The War of Art calls “resistance.” A naturalist studying blackbirds (which he might if he were a British naturalist) would call it a “displacement activity.” In either case, something one is doing when one should be doing something else. I should be getting my Rhode Island Rocks website up and running. I should be thinking of ways to sell my fine-art photos. Etc. Instead I write blogs and fool myself that I’m doing something useful.

    • And reply to blogs too! The problem with things like this, maybe more so for writers than photographers, is that activities like Facebook and blogs are writing and so feel like you’re really working.
