What is the purpose of blogging?

Blogging has become very popular in our society today. You could find a blog about anything nowadays. Ask yourself this - why do we blog? Is it for popularity to who gets the most comments? Is it just for fun? I believe people blog for themselves. It is just another way to relieve stress or anything that's bothering you. Blogging is a way someone could express themselves through writing for the whole world to see.

    i think there's also a desire in most people to create.
