Why Blogging Has Become apart of Everyday Life To Me

I consider my blog as one of my most prized possessions. It holds a wealth of information that i have written for well over a year. At first blogging was something that was not important to me, but my love for it grew over time. Unlike most people who blog for fame, money and recognition, i blog for a totally different reason. I did not realize this until a few weeks ago.

I think blogging community has lost it’s reason for blogging. I will continue blogging even if i have only one reader. To tell you the truth i could care less about things such as “technorati authority” or how many “diggs” i get. I think bloggers should blog not because they want to make money, but because they love blogging ( If the money and fame should come with it then that’s good, but dont let it be the only reason for you blogging, if it is your posts will have no heart). I dont know if anyone else agrees with me but that’s what i think.

Through blogging i’ve gained alot…alot that i’m aware and not aware of. I’ve found new friends, my writing has gotten better, i’ve met people like Kurk ( My imaginary Uncle and a friend that i’ve grown close to), Taylor( Wierd felllow:P), Leon and a wealth of other people. A few years from now i can look at how i’ve matured and how my writing has improved and feel a sence of nostalgia. To all my fellow bloggers, continue blogging because you love it and not because you want to soley make money, to my dedicated readers continue reading and watch me blog on.

    I agree you especially on the blogging just for fun and then everything else after part. My blog is like an extension of me and my personality.

    Blogging has evolved over the years though and now there are various types of blogs for just about anything you can think of. Gone are the days of some weird geek keeping an online journal in his basement, blogging is now mainstream and it will only get bigger.

    Yeah.. back in the day people would have personal websites.. now adays that is no more.. they just have blogs. Its such a powerful movement that business places have to recognize it. and promote products through blogs etc.

    I couldn’t agree with you more.
    Stay safe now.
    Your remarks as to what hapens after Dean’s passing are very succinct
    but if there is anything you need or would like in a feel good way, that can fit in a jiffy bag and be found in Grenada, please let me know and we’ll see what we can do.
    I will never forget the kindnesses from complete strangers and how much they helped after Ivan.
    all our thoughts really are with everyone in Jamaica,
