Why Do You Blog?

Question: Why do YOU Blog?
Answer: (I'm waiting...)

Professor Steven Taylor over at PoliBlog attended a recent conference at which he sat on a panel about blogging. There are several post about the panel, all very interesting, but the most recent caught my eye. A student apparently asked why each of the panelists maintained a blog, insinuating that there must be money in it. In his answer, Dr. Taylor talks about passion and the desire obtain and pass on knowledge. He closes the post with
"I like ideas, I like words; hence, I blog."

I guess I blog to "put out the fire."

So why do you blog? Is it money, passion, hidden agendas, boredom ...?
