Blogging is really good for you

Think about it.

All day long we write, twitter, blog and generally engage in the act of some form of expressive writing that may or may not be work-related and if we aren't Michael Arrington then we probably wonder sometimes what we get out of it.

Turns out that the more expressive, personal and creative we are the better it is, and in fact we are getting a lot more out of it personally than Michael is. We are actually getting healthier, happier, more immune and improving our mental health.

Scientific American's Jessica Wapner has wrapped it all up here and it is good, sound judgement on all our parts to do a lot more than just document the plays of the players and pontification of the pundits.

So let's drag out that thesaurus, search our souls, light a candle and take a few of our online social minutes every day to make the world a better place, and our lives a little better.
