What is blogging?

I don't really know how exactly this blogging thing works. I mean, I look at other authors' blogs, and I keep thinking about whether I'm supposed to blog like them or someone else. I get that it's supposed to be another word for a journal, except everyone has the key to it.

But what am I supposed to say on a blog? What am I supposed to blog about?

Am I supposed to blog about my man-crush on China Mieville and my enduring love of weird fiction? Do I blog about current events? I don't know. I think I have nothing to contribute to a conversation.

I don't want to be the kind of guy who spews about how much the world sucks or I suck, but I can't stop thinking about it. I'm constantly thinking I'm the worst person in the room, even when there's no one else in the room! Heck, even on this site I'm afraid to post things because I think I'm interrupting or just being a nuisance.

I don't want to be a nuisance. That's the farthest thing from what I want to be. But I have a hard time believing that people think anything other than badly about me. Does that mean I'm self-centered? Does that make me self-absorbed? I hope not.

I don't know where else to go with this post, so I'm going to leave it here. Ciao.
