My daughter has entered the blogosphere and Why we write

Seems like yesterday, I lifted Caiti up to place the star on the family Christmas tree.  Now she enters the blogosphere, and writes about her fear of heights and why she writes.

Dave Winer discusses the power of writing as it is an exercise in thinking.  Dave Winer is one of the creators of the blogosphere.  I started blogging 12 years ago using one of his first blog products, Radio UserLand.

Which reminds me of other good readings about why we (should) write:

Writing is purpose-driven thinking.  Writing is hard work.  Writing can be exegesis for the curious and an occlusion of reality for the escapist.

Here’s to good thoughts, good writing, and a mastery of the outputs of her amygdala!
