Why Blog?

Today I will answer another one of RK's Random Questions.

1. Why did you start to blog (either your own or reading mine!)?
I originally started my blog so that I had a blogger ID to use to reply on friends' blogs. When the first 31 for 21 challange started, I decided to make my blog public and start writing. I think it's an easy way to keep my long-distant relatives up to date and also a way to speak out on things I am thinking about.

I started ready Just RK during last year's challange and enjoy it so I keep on reading. :)

2. How many hits do you get in a day, if you have a blog and a SiteMeter or something like that?
I have a map feature that I added last spring and it says I get about 20-25 a day. I'm over 10,000 views now, so that's cool. I'd love to have a SiteMeter like Renee has. I love her Google Search posts!

3. If you lost your ability to read blogs or post on you blog today, what would you miss most?
I would dearly miss reading and seeing photos of my blog friends! I have laughed and cried so many times in the past year over something I read in a blog. If I couldn't blog myself, I would miss the ease of sharing stories and photos with my family. I don't like doing mass emailing updates because I never know if someone wants all that info or not. This way they can read if they'd like to.

4. What is something you've learned from another blog that you'll always remember?
Most recently I learned about apraxia from Emily at Wonderbabe. Sean's gaining vocabulary but it is slow, so I like to learn more about speech development. I learn new things daily, though, from bloggers!

If any of my blogger friends want to answer these questions, send me a link so I can read your replies and send the link to RK, too.

So glad you found us a year ago! :o)

I so agree with you about the mass to know if people care to get them or not?? So blogging was the answer for me too.

Check out my blog today. I left something for you. I've never done one of these before, but I want to pass it along.

Just so you know- You can find out how people got to your blog via google searches using the free sitemeter! I have some strange ones- not anything like Renee but i also don't have as much stuff on my blog, or even a percentage of her readers!
