Blogging is good for your mind

Roger Ebert updated his blog by saying since he has been unable to speak, his writing ability has increased. Heck Yes. But I think it has a little bit to do with the actual blogging as well as being unable to speak.

Updating regularly changes the way you think, a little bit. You frame things into an entry. He wrote, " mind has started dictating before I am at a keyboard. Ideas and words present themselves at any time." This happened to me the other day at work. I was thinking of an entry, thinking of my phrases when there was no way I would get to a computer until hours from them.

It disciplines your mind. Sharpens your written communication skills. And, as Ebert has realized, propels you into conversation. A conversation you do not need to verbalize.
