Why Do You Blog?

New blogger Mrs. Mom tagged me for a fun meme.

How long have you been blogging?

I started blogging in February of 2006, so my second blogiversary is coming up. I just read my first post and frankly, I’m a little embarrassed. It’s a snoozer but hey – a girl’s got to start somewhere!

What inspired you to start a blog and who are your mentors?

I stumbled upon Miss Zoot’s blog and really enjoyed reading it. Writing is in my bones so I thought I’d give it a go.

I read many, many blogs and think lots of different qualities can make a blog great. That said, the following bloggers stand out in my mind as exceptional writers:

Are you trying to make money online, or just doing it for fun?

Up until now, I’ve been blogging for fun but I’m considering doing a bit o’ freelance blogging.

What 3 things do you love about being online?

  1. Encountering kindred spirits.
  2. Glimpses into different lifestyles all over the world. It’s the virtual equivalent of people-watching, which I delight in and is the essence of why I wanted to be a journalist. I love asking questions and learning about people.
  3. Access to learn things I never would’ve known about otherwise.
  4. Bonus thing: Free p0rn!

What 3 things do you struggle with online?

  1. Oversharing vs. being honest and forthright.
  2. Maintaining some anonymity.
  3. I see and have experienced some cliquishness, which is a shame.

I tag anyone who’d like to play along. Let me know and I’ll give you some linky love.
