The blogging awards have set me thinking. Who are the bloggers who deserve the awards? The answer is really quite clear. They are the ones who care enough to put in that extra effort when putting up contents. In other words, they are responsible bloggers.
People blog for a myriad of reasons. Sandhill Trek asked this question "Why do we blog?" and received 35 interesting answers from his readers.
At first I was resistant to the idea of blogging. It would be weird opening up my life to strangers in the unknown world. Then I started blogging, with completely no expectations. It was meant to be a letter to my circle of friends, an update of what’s going on in my life. Then something totally unexpected happened. From one friend, I gained another, then another. It was exponential.
Now it has became a new found passion to entertain my readers. I have never been more intellectually stimulated than I’ve ever been in my life. I am aware of things around me, ideas come to me freely which I share on my blog. Because I see that same passion in my fellow bloggers and I appreciate their effort, I start leaving comments on their blogs.
Blogging has given me an opportunity to connect, share, garner support, empathise, discuss, flaunt, vent, rant, inform, bond… well, we all have our own reasons. Happy blogging my friends.
