1) Interacting with people
I live in a semi populated area, but without this blog there might be some people that I would have never been able to talk to otherwise. I like getting feedback from all of you and I enjoy the discussions we have.
2) You can do it whenever you want
This is no timer hovering over me so I can write whenever a feel like writing. If I don’t feel like getting up at five in the mourning, I don’t have to. In fact I can write a post the day before and then schedule it to publish at five. I think that’s one of the best ideas WordPress has ever had.
3) It helps me gain more from books
As you know, I write book reviews and discuss mostly book related topics. I think writing about the books I’ve read helps me have a better understanding of it and I learn more from it. It also helps me discover a bit of who I am as a person and sometimes even change who I am. I’m not really a fighter, but now I’m currently reading The Girl who Played with Fire and there is some appalling stuff that makes me want to fight some of the characters.
