I would never recommend you write a weblog if you don't want to but I have
to argue with your reasoning.

Now, if you had said "I don't like to write", I'd buy that but I hope
there's more going on in your life than what you had for lunch today.
There must be some things you think about that are neither
private/personal or "owned" by someone else (tangent: the thought that
your work life is "entirely owned" by your employer is deeply scary.)

Do you never read a book or see a movie you might want to recommend? Try a
new restaurant? Visit an interesting location? Do you have no opinions you
might want to share with friends or co-workers? Is there nothing in your
life outside of "work" and "private"?
