Blogging to vent or blogging to inspire

For some blogging is a way to vent. Getting all the stuff that annoys you out of the system. It's a way of shouting out at the road hogs, the bad customer service, the bad luck that life throws you. A another free therapy channel and if someone empathizes all the better.

For me, I blog because I was inspired by something or someone. I believe there's enough bad stuff out there to around. Not sense in having one more person to rant. I'd rather rave about a good deed, a great quote or a wonderful movie.

This year has been a blogging drought. When your back is against the wall and you're racing the clock to get software out, it's not a good combination for blogger like me who likes to think about what I say before I say it.

Some days I miss being a knowledge worker, i.e. someone has to surf as part of his job to learn about what's happening around him/her and get paid for it. To inspire, you have to be inspired and the best inspiration comes from absorbing blogs, twitters etc.

Note to self. Take time to be inspired. It's a better shot in the arm than a Red Bull.
