Why blog

I don't think that I really need to have a blog. Nobody does, of course, it's supposed to be some kind of a hobby, but I'm already part of a blog for my family, so I don't really need a new forum to rant on, so the blame for this blog can only be placed on my sister.
A couple of days ago, we were discussing what on earth I'm going to major in during college. One of the possibilities that came up (actually, she was bringing up possibilities and I was explaining why I could never go into them) was English, but I pointed out the fact that this is the kind of thing that it's easy to major in, but very very hard to earn money in unless one has actual talent, which I'm not sure I do. So she said that I should create a blog as a writing forum to see if A) I enjoy writing something semi-daily and B) if anyone else finds it interesting enough to actually read. So far I can handle A) (Well, it's only been one post) and I have serious doubts as to B), but at least I tried.

You repeatedly mistake English with writing. The two have little to do with eachother.

Oh, whatever Shmuli. When I say English, I mean the branches of education that have to do with the English Language, in which category writing would be included. And who the heck would go into just English? Talk about not being able to make a living or do anything useful.

If you have any interest in law, majoring in English can be very useful because it requires you to analyze texts and do a hell of a lot of reading and writing.

hey...a whole lot of nonsense just happened that I don't think I undrestand very well; I think I accidentally set up my own blog without meaning to... anyway...I just want to say that Tobie, I will forever be disappointed in you if you were to go into English. you're so much better than that! use your talents for something useful that will help shape the future of our world! publish any amount of anythings that you care to write, abt anything, but if you spend four yrs of your life devoted (or nearly so) to finding the Marxist interpretation to Tuck Everlasting, I'm really going to have to come after you with a baseball bat while you're sleeping.
