I like stories. Always have, can't imagine that changing.
It's probably why I found most history textbooks so hard to read - they followed the facts, not the stories.
At some point in the past 24 hours I had the realization that I decided to get my BA in Sociology (why is a psych degree BS, but not Sociology?) because I liked the stories. Unfortunately, I didn't end up liking to aggregate them or compile the data or anything other than sucking in the end result of work done by others.
Tied into that is probably why I like reading blogs - stories. And why I've stopped reading at least one blog because it went from stories, some of which made me fall out of my seat laughing, and some of which brought me to tears, to almost every post being some form of 'look at all the crap people give me or opportunities I have because I'm so wonderful' Bor-ing!
So for my readers who blog - thank you! Thank you for sharing your stories! If you keep writing, I'll keep reading (unless of course you do the same thing as that blogger I mentioned above, and then all promises are off).
