Why do you blog?

I've been in the blogging world for about a year now and I really want to know, why do you blog?

I'm still trying to figure this out for myself. That's why my blog is filled with random posts. Some family stuff, some political, some social, some just rants. My blogging is infrequent because either I don't find the time to blog, don't feel like sharing my life at the moment, or just plain tired of blogging. Then I'll have spurts where I really enjoy blogging. Hmm, maybe I'm suffering from ADSB (Attention Deficit Schizophrenic Blogging). It's a new condition just discovered by the American Board of Everyone Has a Mental Disorder Organization. You can get drugs for it.

I found this blogging world to be a unique window into the human psyche and why we willingly open our lives to millions in cyber space. I know some people keep their blogs private and others don't. So, why do you blog?
Is your blog a form of creative expression?
Do you blog for family members who live far away?
Do you blog to meet people of similar interests?
Do you blog to enter into interesting discussions?
Do you blog because you feel the need to compete and show off you super cute family and make everyone else feel like theirs is less than stellar? (That was a little harsh, but definitely need to be voiced because let's face it, we all know it's there. It's like the elephant in the room.)
I'm really serious, I would love to know.

There is no wrong answer, everyone will probably have a unique reason. So please, discuss.
