I've wanted to blog for a long time. I look at my friend's blogs and read their thoughts and never felt worthy of my own blog. Why? In a word: boring. I don't have a lot of creative or profound ideas. My hobbies are dull. I'm not intellectually active enough to read books worth mentioning.
What prompted me to finally do it? Not sure. Maybe it's because I've read a lot of Perez Hilton lately and figure if that loser has a well-read blog then maybe I shouldn't be ashamed of my thoughts.
