I’ve been writing so much lately but you can’t tell from my blog! I don’t know how many ideas and starts I’ve written on tablets (okay, in notebooks that sounded like I was writing the 10 commandments or something), and how many posts I’ve started only to delete. I’ve also been commenting on blog after blog. Actually I think I am a better commenter or (is it commentator?) than blogger!
I’ve been wondering about this blogging thing quite a bit. There is a guesstimate of around 50 million blogs out there in the blogosphere, but probably only around 2 million active blogs (I might have counted yours twice, sorry). Isn’t that mind-boggling or is it mind-bloggleling?
I wonder why you started blogging and would love to hear feedback. Usually when I ask for feedback I don’t seem to get any. I will say that I have been getting extra spam lately–but, I really don’t want those funky messages.
Why do you blog?
1. You want to write or be a writer
A. You want to connect with people
2. Everyone seems to be doing it
B. What is a blog?
3. You think you are funny and feel you need to share this gift
C. You are trying to convince everyone that you are right about everything
4. You came to my site because you were hungry for ice cream
D. You are trying to market a product, craft, child
5. You are trying to make money
E. Your dad was a blogger, your grandpa was a blogger and his dad was a blogger
Okay, just so you know, I am blogging because I like to write (1.) and because I think I am funny sometimes (3.). This is why I started to blog, but I have been surprised that I have gained a bit of community in the process.
I’m sorry I don’t have the fancy little survey thingy that you see on some blogs — I have a limited budget and we have had major cutbacks here. Take the time to truthfully comment — I am sure I have missed a reason so feel free to add more…
