I’m guessing that anyone who is reading this blog might wonder why I am writing it. Why should I waste my time posting something that people are most likely not going to read? Shouldn’t I be doing something more productive?
The answer to the first question is “because it’s a good thing to do.” It doesn’t matter so much that other people read it as much as I write it. If I don’t write this ideas or observations, then how can people read it? It doesn’t matter if only one person looks at these as much as it gets that one person to think about something good and might inspire him or her to do something good. It’s almost like in Saving Private Ryan where the commander is saying, “This guy better find a cure or something” when they are sacrificing so much to save one man. I can put in a lot of effort, but if some person can take that effort and do something remarkable, then wouldn’t that be worth it?Whether or not a theory is correct is not always important. Sometimes, the important thing is to exercise the mind by practicing critical thinking. Musing is essentially just that: critical thinking. When we speak out our thoughts, it can help put them in order. We might find flaws in the thinking, but the lessons we learn from the process can assist us in finding those flaws faster in the future. In today's post, I don't really care so much about if my theory is true, but rather that you have an example of the critical thinking process. That is something productive and why I write a blog.
So why write them? I can speak these ideas to different people if I wanted to spread my thoughts. The problem with that is it only relies on word of mouth and that someone doesn’t forget. By having a source, people can refer to other people where the idea is talked about.
At the same time, writing a blog isn’t just for anyone, but also myself. There have been a few times when I have talked to people where I refer to my own writings to recall how I thought of a point. Sometimes the answer surprises me and I think I was mistaken. Other times, I see the logic and can make a valid argument. By writing these posts, I am helping myself. I am analyzing things and, later on, can reexamine them after more experiences.

Currently I'm on a monthly schedule to update this blog. This doesn't exactly mean that I'll have a new deeply thought-provoking piece every 2-4 weeks, but rather I'll try to write a piece or say if I couldn't prepare anything. I have surprised myself in the number of posts I have written, but I cannot guarantee that there will always be a essay as I am only one person who is busy with other aspects of life. However, by updating the blog every few weeks, you know that I'm still alive and have the intent to continue to share my thoughts.
A corollary to that is if I don't publish anything for 2 months, I probably died or lost access to my account. It can happen any minute. That's actually why I'm writing this page so that you know how to expect it. Hopefully it doesn't happen anytime soon as I plan to share more and more ideas with you all.
