Why do I need a blog?

Why do I need a blog? I don't have the answer, except that everyone seems to have one. "Everyone" being part of that great mystery group: "they." You know, "they" say that... (fill in your favourite saying by "them," which is a subgroup of "they").

Alright. So now that I have a blog (and I am not too certain about the "Writer's Cramp" name -- it's either too cute or too lame. You decide. And send in your suggestions for your chance to win.) The better question is: What am I going to do with this blog? I don't know. Still working on that one.

I will probably use it to promote me. After all, in this self-centred society, who else is going to promote me? Everyone else is too busy promoting themselves to spend any time talking about me. Unless they (you see? they're everywhere) have something nasty to say about me. But Oscar Wilde said (oh boy, even I'm getting fed up with me now), "the only thing worse than people talking about you, is people NOT talking about you." Hey, it worked for him because we're still quoting him. Or at least I am.

So, I'll keep the entries short and try to update regularly (yeah, yeah, we've all heard that before) and try to find out exactly why I have started this whole thing in the first place. Well, it's free. I like free stuff. And you know what they say about free stuff? It's free.

OK, I'll be the first. Uh, nice blogspot. I bet you are from a nice family. Probably have a very cool sister or something. I'm just guessing.
