Very meta

In the Guardian, three popular bloggers discuss why they write, and their views on being read.

My motivation is closest to that of Gregor Wright: I don't write to entertain, nor even particularly to be read at all. I tend not to write about daily events and people. That's not entirely deliberate, but if I did, I'd need to be more conscious of an audience (particularly a known audience), which might be inhibiting. I've mentioned before that my life is somehow 'compartmentalised '. Again, such barriers aren't really deliberate, but I have to acknowledge they're there, and I wouldn't feel comfortable publicly reporting, say, time spent with Helen to an audience which included friends in Lancaster or (potentially) my family; I'm different in different company.

Perhaps that needs to be challenged. We'll see.
