I started this daily blog in August 2002, about two hundred years in blog years. It causes me to pay attention to my world with more curiosity, always in search of something I can incorporate into a next post. It sharpens my writing and reading and as a result, my thinking. It's a practice of generosity because it is not a private journal, which of course I also keep. It feeds my work, my books and my contributions to my world. For these and countless other reasons, I would suggest that everyone should blog.
