Why do you blog?

June 9, 2007 8:21pm CST
Why do you blog? For fun, extra money, promote your products, referral links etc (mix?) Personally I blog for a record, I'm not bothered if I don't gain interest or viewers. Just as long as keep a diary which reflects my true thoughts and feelings. I also blog to keep members of my projects informed. ~Joey What about yourself?

I do admire people who do blog and hopefully they do get some money out of it, I actually use this site to blog well through discussions that is, as you know I write my own diary by hand and some of it are my deepest thoughts and feelings, I don't really have the time to put up a blog, or the inclination or the know how. Good luck with your projects my friend, respect!

I am quite like you on this aspect. I blog more for the record. To record some thoughts that would otherwise go forgotten. My blog is quite erratic in that my posting frequency is very random. I can post a few times a day or goes for days or weeks or ... without posting.

For me, blogging is really fun, it's really nice to blog about feelings on public by expressing it, do some rants and ramblings, fangirling and spazzing about your crushes and celebs.... no matter how visitors will react on your post you can post whatever you want. And some visitors also will inspire with your entries... For me, the importance of blogging is, I want to express my true feelings, opinions, reactions, that happening in my entire life. I started blogging since 2003 or 2004, i don't think referral links are not popular, it's really hard to find Filipino blogger, 'coz most of them are FOreign.

My personal blog is just to share with friends what is going on in my life. My homeschooling blog (http://momisteaching.com) is to talk about my love of homeschooling. My pagan blog (http://moonlightfaith.blogspot.com) is to try and keep my thoughts straight and work through my own spirituality. And I've just been hired to write a parenting blog (http://mommybabble.contentquake.com) that I plan to use to share parenting advice with others.

I finally did start my own blog. It is more of a record of my journey to become an proficient options trader. It serves as a record of my experiences and beliefs. Very few people would be interested in my blog, but it serves a good purpose for me. Writing as you do is a good way to see where you have been and to discover who you are.

it's better to blog for ourselves and not because we want to please others. personal blogs is one way of telling the world who we really are. plus, being true to ourselves is one thing we get from it. most people aren't interested in personal blogs. but it keeps records of who we are... anne

i blog for different reasons a mixture of promoting affiliate products, adding reviews, general news, for keeping a kind of a scrapbook and journal online so i can keep a record of any information i want or interesting sites i find. that way i can keep referring back to my blogs which i find more interesting than having a lot of sites in my favorites on my computer and it helps me remember what im doing as im not very good at writing things down

Actually, my main intention of blogging at the earlier stage was to get some decent earnings from blogging. But soon, I begin to really enjoy blogging. If I don't give response on myLot, than I'll be doing some blogging realted kind of work. That includes research, writing and submitting my blogs to directories. Blogging opens up my mind to wider knowledge on the topic that I blog about. This is because I want to avoid myself from blogging things that isn't interesting to others. I enjoy seeing visitors coming back to my blogs. This way, I know my blog is attractive to others. I also promote some affiliate products on my blog. It has given me some decent earnings so far. However, I don't usually promote on my blog as I also give information and reviews on related matters to the topic I am discussing.

i blog in two different sites. i don't blog to get paid. i blog because i keep them as my journal. the other one is about the sites where i earn online. the other blog is about my life (ups and downs) as a whole. i find blogging brings out the best in me. even when i am feeling lonely, i blog. i don't care if people will notice it or not. i just wanna say it in a blog and one day, i get back onto it and read it. blogging is one great thing to remind us of who we are and who we are and who we will be. blogging is actually fun. it tells us of who we really are... anne

I only wrote two blogs so far and they are about my referral links and how to earn money. I don't really like blogging much but I thought I should try it at least once. It is ok, I guess.
