WWTK: Bloggity, Blog, Blog, Blog

We Want To Know time again.  this week the questions come from Mamarazzi.  She's curious about our blogs.  So here we go:

{1} Please describe your blog. Does it fall into one category or many? How has it changed from post one?  My blog is my place to vent, talk about my family, document what goes on in my life.  it's also a place I can make friends, which I'm horrible at in real life.  I feel that my writing has gotten better since I started. But my blog still falls under a family life blog, mostly.

{2} What 3 things do you LOVE about blogging?  Meeting the people who blog.  I feel like I have made some great friends, I just need to get together with them face to face still.  I love having a place to rant about the crazy family I have, the nutty neighbors, a place to vent.  I love the conversations I have with other bloggers about things I have said on my blog or other blogs--the conversation makes it so much better.

{3} What 3 things do you DISLIKE about blogging?  Sometimes I feel that I rely on Memes too much, but I try to choose ones that let me be creative with them.  I dislike the bloggers who attack other bloggers.  I dislike some of the drama that comes out sometimes.  It seems so middle school, but some people never got over that I guess.

{4} What 3 things do you WISH OTHER BLOGGERS would do? Any tips for them?  Enabling email is a nice one.  Being able to respond to comments is nice.  For new bloggers--comment, comment, comment.  this is advice I got at the beginning and it makes a difference.  Stay true to yourself.  Blog what you know.

{5} I know we all have lots of blogs we read, but what are 3 blogs you never miss? Picking just three is tough.  I think I'll go with:  Second Blooming, SLMPetersen, and Amalah.

Now go check out the other answers.  And go see Crazymama, shew's hosting too!



  1. I sometimes feel like I rely on memes too much too but it seems like those get the most comments. Though it's not all about the comments, that's the main interaction so it's the best!

  2. I love the aspect of meeting new people. I have met some truly amazing individuals through blogging and social media... really value their friendships.
    Great answers!

  3. i agree with all your answers on #4 comments are important so is email enabled

  4. I also feel like a rely on memes too much, too - and on days when I don't have one to fall back on, I have trouble thinking of something to write!

  5. Yip it's all about 'meeting' new people, I really like that bit. O and thanks for the links I'm going to check them out for sure.

  6. i love that you gave Crazymama a shout out too...she needs more visitors, her blog rocks!!

    great tips!

    thanks for linking up!!

  7. I hate when bloggers fight...there's too much of that crap in real life, why would you take it to the blog world???

  8. Your answers to #4 are really good. :D

  9. thanks for sending people my way. i used to be a popular blogger but my blog isn't seeing much action these days.

    great tips. and you do need to set up some blogger meet and greets, it's super fun to meet in real life.

    thanks for linking up and your awesome comments!

  10. I really love memes and blog carnivals, too! Lately...that's pretty much what my blog consists of. I'm just having a hard time getting back into it and figuring out what to share and what not to share...and the meme's are just so darn enjoyable. :) I like ones like these where I can share about myself and learn about others in the process.
    Happy blogging!

  11. I love that your blog feels real. You say what you mean & don't sugar coat anything. I feel like you would be a great friend in real life. :)

    Totally agree with disliking the bloggy drama. It's like grow the freak up already! Geesh!!

    Great advice for other bloggers.

  12. Meeting and making new friends is definitely one of my favorite things about blogging!
    I haven't been attacked by any bloggers, and I hope I never do. I haven't heard of that happening yet, but yikes that it does!
    I totally agree with enabling e-mail, oh man would that make getting back to people so much easier.
    Awesome answers!


I love to get comments! They make my heart go pitter-pat! Go on comment--I'll do my best to go give your blog some love too!
