Aha! I Knew It! Blogging is Good For You.
Scientific American (we've heard of them) runs a piece on blogging and the brain. Alice Flaherty, a neuroscientist at Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital studies conditions such as hypergraphia (an uncontrollable urge to write) and writer’s block.
"Also, blogging might trigger dopamine release, similar to stimulants like music, running and looking at art."
That explains a lot.
