where has my wit gone?

I am re-reading old blog entries from one of my very first blog sites. Reading them, I see that I used to be kind of witty.
What happened?

I think it was as I have said before, people I know in real life are reading my blog now and I tend to self edit too much. And I have gotten so much busier and stressed out so writing has taken a back seat.

I also think I wrote more because I knew people were reading and commenting. I get so few comments on this blog (Thank you for commenting, Laura! You're awesome) This brings up the question-why do I post- for others or for me?

Then there is Twitter which has taken blogging and shrunk it down to 140 characters or less.

Maybe I'll re post a few of them better ones here to help get my creative juices flowing again.

OMG hahaha you totally crack me up.
I used to write a lot more too. Now I just dink around online until I am sick of looking at the monitor.
I think you are still witty. :P
I know I used to write all sort of funny or interesting things on RT or Live Journal. I can't remember the last time I wrote something remotely interesting. So I hear ya!

I've been thinking about why I blog too. I've gotten in the habit of posting comments to my own blog and it made me realize that I'm blogging for myself more than anything.

Just yesterday I added a page with password protection because I wanted to test the idea of really blogging for myself.
