Samuel Johnson was simply wrong when he famously said that no one but a blockhead ever wrote except for money. The truth is that recognition is the greater motivator.
Little in this world can be seen as black and white, neither can this. I guess I write both for myself and for an audience. I think better when I write so for this reason, I'm very selfish and egoistic about blogging. Plus, in this way, I have a collection of thoughts and useful links always at hand. But naturally, I hope that a potential reader is interested in the topic and might even benefit from reading my posts. And yes, it’s a motivator when someone e-mails me to ask further questions about something I blogged, or just to say hi.
If you are a blogger, for whom do you blog?
