Blogs

Why do people use blogs? Is it to meet new people or just to put down what they are feeling in a theraputic way? I don't really understand it myself, it seems like a waste of time and i'd be terrified of someone i know stubbling across it! Enlighten me- why are they so popular?

I don't really know why they are so popular. I used to have a xanga back in high school. I think I made one because a few other of my friends did it and it was kind of cool to look at each other's public journal. Then a lot of people from my school got them and it was pretty fun reading about everyone's life. The fad soon ended though and now I don't even know anyone that still uses a xanga or livejournal

It is a way for people to chat to other people online. This site is sort of like a blog and it is very popular. It's just a way for people with similar interets to get together online and "hang out" in a way. It is just like a website that is a social event such as a party. You can talk with people and have fun while doing it. That is why it is so popular.

I started blogging when I moved my three children accross the ocean and away from their friends and - more importantly - thier grandparents. It's been a great way to keep everyone updated on how we are doing, give them some laughs about our adjustment to another country, and share pictures. If you wanna check out the site, let me know, I'll send you the link in a private message.

i have two blogs, but it's a long time that I don't write anything because I have no time. Why do people use blogs? Both the reasons you suggest. Blog is a way to meet new people and also to tell about our desires, problems, anxietis and so on. I don't think it's a waste of time, blog is a way to communicate, and to me, if there is a possibility to communicate it is never a waste of time. Don't you think?

A blog can be anything from an online diary to a place where people post information about themselves; like a place for families to upload pictures of events.

To be honest, I have no idea why people are so hooked on that. I am not into it myself at all. I think it is a waste of my time.

I use blogs to basically vent out. Stuff about my day, my life. Opinions about the news, gossip. It's a place to write about what you care about.

I used to have a blog but got bored with it. I guess some people have on to update others on their life, some need to be the center of attention. I haven't updated my blog in a year or more, I probably don't even remember the password LOL

I may appear silly but i still am unsure what a blog is, how to go about it or how to make money from it!

Seems I read somewhere that bloggers make just enough to clear costs. Is that true or can you make descent money. I have a free one set up at blogger. I just haven't done anything with it yet. How would folks know to even go there. I mean if everyone knows it is to make money then what is the motivation to even visit?

Some blogs are just for informational purposes, like mine. http://spkrbox1.spaces.live.com

I have set up four blogs right now to be able to get into some paid blogging sites. Currently I have been approved for two sites and I am waiting another 10 days for my blogs to be old enough to get approved into two more sites. I figured why not get paid for something that I enjoy to do anyway.
