Why a blog?

So, I've told a couple of people I've started a blog. Most are enthusiastic (although my mom's comment of "for people to read?" cracked me up. her emphasis was on the "people" part...) but the question I keep getting asked is "what's it for?"

Honestly, I hadn't really thought that far ahead, and if I had, I think it was just for me. Like I said, I'm an English teacher, and so I tend to both read and write profusely.But, I don't just want my blog to be about teaching.  Yes, I'm a teacher, but I'm not just a teacher.  Likewise, I make jewelry... but I don't want my blog to be just about jewelry... So I guess, if I must categorize myself (although, really, I defy categorization...) I would say that my blog is about me.  About my interests.  About the ins and outs of my life (but not necessarily the daily minutiae of that life).  Some things I hope to discuss is the difficulty I have in pricing myself, the oddities of discussing plagiarism in college classes, what I want... but that's just the tip of the iceberg.  There's so much out there that's interesting to me, and there's so many things I ponder.  So I guess this blog is about my ponderings...

Should be fun, huh? :D
