Key Requirements for Higher Google Page Rank

Since readers have continued to be curious about Google Page Rank (GPR), I decided to take up an assignment for myself and write GPR Part I...

Ten Reasons Why i Blog

IMG00013
1- I love to play with the photos to create different effects and ways of seeing them, and blogging gives me the opportunity to satisfy the curiosity as well as the creative cravings. For example, the photo above of Miss Trinity, isn't it interesting and dramatic in Emboss?


2- When I was very young, I used to hide away to write in my journal. I stayed up late, and tweaked the words until I am happy. Even in my own diary! Then I would re-read it and critique myself. Ha!


3- Blogging is the only full-time job [not necessary with any pay] that allows me to work while my family is sleeping. I became a writer before I know it and didn't realize how much I love writing, until a friend reminded me, that back in the days, I'd won a Young Authors Awards. So there was a love for writing that got lost with the responsibilities and fights for survivorship.


4- I love being able to fill my time and occupy my mind with some thing else other than the family. Blogging is a way to release many emotions for me, it has help me stayed busy mentally, and stayed out of my family's significant-other’s hair.


5- I love watching the Alexa ranking go up and down. Just when I am about to have the "whatever" attitude, it surprises me with an upward move and gets me all hyped up again, or a downward move that pokes at my competitive sense to do something about it.


6- Blogging allows me to share who I am with people that are interested in me. 


7- Blogging allows me to joke a bit and have a sense of humor. Yes, I have no one to joke with at home that actually responds to my jokes. It goes out and dies in thin air with no come back. I have to give credits to some of my blogger patrons that actually get my jokes and joked back in a very funny manner! WooHoo!


8- I love all the excitement online. For example, when Ann at The Relationship Supermarket Stumble Upon my post of Happy Birthday Contract Son! and I received so many hits from it that it was wonderful! Yet, I appreciate it even more that I can shut-down and walk away as if it doesn’t even exist. Maybe not exactly, since I do think about what my next post is going to be.


9- I love that I can connect with people from different countries, or states as if they are down the street. 


10- Blogging allows me to bring out many of my love. I don’t have a niche for one thing as you can see. I love most everything – some specifics are: light and delicious food, gardening, real estate, investments, online business, technology – cool toys and applications, and beautiful photography.


My ten things are not necessary in any order.

    1. I believe because someone thought "sharing" was a good idea, that is why blogger is around. x-)

  2. Oh, thank you for the link and mention. That's so kind of you.
    I do love blogging too. I wish I had a magic wand to put up my ranking whenever they got low, but maybe I'll find one soon. :-)
    Thanks again.

  6. Hi! I agree with you... blogging is one of the most significant outlets for us nowadays, and the fact that you talk to bloggers/readers and know them better than your neighbors? Sooo true!!

    I believe our readers (Okay, i only have a couple or so!) get our humor because they have so much in common with us, don't you think so?

    Anywa, nice post!

  7. Ladies, in this world, if we don't have friends, it would be terrible. And I find it hard keeping up with friendships with kids...
    Anne, when you find the magic wand, please let me in on it. Like Diane and her pictures of the desert, they are so very interesting, I didn't think deserts could look that nice. Betchai, I could say the same thing, sometimes liking to write doesn't make you a good writer. But we should be improving by doing it consistently through blogging. Allison, my list is from the heart ;-) Jane, you are so right, haha. It's an outlet, a place to connect, and it's wonderful stuff- blogging.

  13. Hehe you just reminded me of my childhood! I used to hide under the blanket with a torch and write stuff. Stuff like- "Mummy didn't allow me to go to my friend's place today" or "I don't like eating papaya at all" haha. I was hardly 10, what lovely days they were:)

  14. Another generous post with so many great links.
    I think, many of us blog for these same reasons which in fact could be summarized in #4-"a way to release many emotions".

  15. I love the idea of making a list of why you love blogging. Maybe I'll make my own list at some point. Great list by the way. :)

  16. All great reasons to blog, I think many of these are shared by many of us. I am truly enjoying getting to know people from around the world and learning about their lives and cultures. The blogging universe is a great place.

  17. I think it's very rewarding that we are able to develop good friendships this way. While I agree blogging and the internet are great outlets, sometimes I think all the access we have now have put more demands on us humans.

  18. I share many of the same reasons. Plus, I can write whatever the heck I feel like and people all over the world can see it. Pretty awesome.
