Tagged: 5 Reasons I Blog

I got tagged by Circle Six Blog. Here are the five reasons why I blog.

To Voice my Opinion

For those who have been reading this blog for a while, you have probably figured out that I have an opinion on just about everything. If I find something that I want to share a unique viewpoint on, I write about it. Sometimes I’ll write about a three-week old story just so I can get all of the details and not make a rash viewpoint.

I also like voicing my opinion on religion as well. I try to keep my opinions as objective as possible though.

To Give Back

I have a lot of web development and programming experience, so sometimes I like to give back to the community. I’ve written several articles for the design community, and have also written a few scripts and one WordPress plugin.

I also like writing about my personal experiences with things. For example, two of my post popular (or most viewed) articles on this site are a post about magazine sales people and my attempt to quit smoking.

To Write about Christian Things

I am a Christian, so I like to use my blog to write about the Christian religion every now and then. I do not try to “preach”, but I do try to inform.

To Connect

I have met so many people through blogging. I don’t feel confined to just Northern Alabama anymore. I know people in India, Great Britain, Canada, San Francisco, Missouri, Minnesota, Montana, Germany, and Australia among other places.

With blogging, I feel like I’m getting to know people better.

To Feel Satisfaction

Blogging can be one of the most satisfying hobbies a person can have. You typically have instant feedback from others if the blog is popular enough. If I write a post and just one person is helped out by it, then the time and effort spent researching and writing is worth it.

Tag, You’re It!

  1. Thanks for the tag Ronald. 🙂 Now, regarding your points:

    1 : That’s probably one of the best reasons for blogging. There aren’t that many things in life that are as important as voicing out what one things.

    2 : This is the most important point; to help others.

    3 : I like that approach. Not to preach, but to inform.

    4 : That is the beauty of blogging! You run into people from all over the world. I am sure blogging helps us understand human nature more because of the constant interaction with others!

    5 : Aah yes, the satisfaction! The most important pillar among the few other pillars that help us blog more and find blogging to be a happy experience overall. You are a good blogger then, since you find helping even one reader to be worth blogging for.

    I will get to it soon. Thanks again. 🙂

  2. Thanks Bes.

    5: The post I wrote last week about Fall Out Boy has been incredibly popular. A lot of people are coming in from Google and Yahoo because they had the same problem I did. Kinda weird how that works. It was such a simple post to write, but beneficial for those wanting to find the correct location of the download link.

    I look forward to your reasons.

  3. OMG, I'm so behind on my links! I'm so sorry. Lemme make it up to you 🙂

    I blog to inspire questions, simplify my thought processes (I confuse myself @_@), debate important issues, criticize stupid things incessantly (I've been told that I'm judgmental), and keep my creative juices flowing. Without my blog, I'd feel incredibly brainless; I wouldn't be designing anything, I'd barely be writing, and my political I.Q. would be dead. So I'm thankful for it, and thanks for tagging me!

    (My mistake was that I had bookmarked your blog, but when I switched to a feed reader, your site was in a different bookmarks folder, so I must have missed it :()

    (Also, I feel like posting this almost two months late looks kinda bad; I'll be better in the future :P)
