voyeur

Sometimes we write things, and we have no specific purpose in writing them. The beauty of the blog is that a lot of us find it easier to type than to write; so a blog for us is essentially a diary, or journal.
Writing your feelings/emotions objectifies those feelings. It takes away the wishy/washy, the subjective, the "maybe this is what I think" that is replaced 20 seconds later by "no this is what I really think." Some writers use the blog at times as a journal, a sort of diary for the electronic age. And those of us who are fortunate enough to read those entries essentially are voyeurs into the private life of the writer.
And as voyeurs, we must sit passively in the back, quietly, respectful of the actors, until the play is over or our criticism is solicited.
