Why blog?

I’m not really a natural blogger.

I never kept a journal as a kid.  I don’t feel a burning need to tell the world my latest opinion, observation, or insight.  If anything, I assume (perhaps incorrectly) that most people are as busy as I am, are reasonably happy with the content sources they have, and if anything would appreciate one fewer distraction.

But I am blogging anyway.  Why?

It turns out, I am basically blogging already.  If I am emailing a friend about a startup I am looking into, an idea I am exploring, a book I recently read, etc., I’ve done most of the work.  By posting this same content to a blog, I might get some additional insights from other readers and the subject of my post might get a bit of a boost by having this in a public forum (rather than just in their Inbox).

That’s the theory anyway.  Let’s see how it goes.

    It’s good to see I’m not the only one out there trying an Angel blog! It will be interesting to compare the right and left coast experiences.

    Andrew, I have a startup aimed at improving the efficacy of medical mission trips. I am interested in meeting with you. Will you have office hours soon?

    Best,

    Catherine
