Blogging

I have been trying to determine what the point of blogging is. Many people do it to express themselves while others want to make money. I want both. But I have found it quite hard to  achieve that.

First off, I have no traffic. Aside from me nobody else seem to be reading what I write. In the first place, sometimes what I write is just intellectual masturbation and nothing else — so should I blame anyone if my entries are unread and unappreciated?

I want to stop yakking and complaining and start doing stuff that are actually useful and productive but I find it very difficult to start. Unlike when I was younger, creativity is so much more difficult to come by for me now. Is that the natural course of things, I wonder. Does creativity atrophy with age?
