Why Do I Blog?

12 Jan

I don’t know how to start this post, but, as far as I know I’ve been blogging for a while now, though, I’ve only got 11 Posts, 2 Pages and 21 Comments. I do know about thousands of other blogs out there that don’t get noticed too, so the question is Why do I still Blog?

For me, there is no quick answer to this question. As far as I know, it started with my wish to have a personal website which led to my googling for a free personal website stuff, due to which I came across an article about blogging. That article changed my life. It was a legen-wait for it-dary (in the style of Barney Stinson) moment in my life.

After the article, my blogging days started and first I set-up a blog at Blogger.com (too simple for me) and then at Tumblr.com (too colorful for me), and, then I came across where I was destined to be, WordPress, and since then I have been blogging here.

Originally, I just wanted to have a personal blog (for my daily life and sorts) but soon I realized that I wanted to explore more and interact with the blogging world and on the other hand, decided to put a limit on what I share and write. So, I started to use tags, links and at the same time I went to several blogs that I found interesting, and at the end of the day, I liked and commented on some posts and well, that’s how bloggers interact.

In this blogging journey of mine, I’ve realized many things. A blog is like a medium to share whatever I want to. A blog is like a piece of real estate on the Internet which keeps growing by the push of the Publish button.


WordPress promotes Regular Blogging

You might have read my previous post which was about my saying that I’ll post every day in 2011. That was my first resolution for 2011. Well, I didn’t post yesterday (1 Jan) so that breaks my resolution as early as it can.

Whatever, let’s just come to the point. This post isn’t meant to tell you about my resolutions and how early I broke them.

WordPress has taken the initiative to promote regular blogging by the name “The Daily Post“. They’ll be using this blog as a place to share blogging ideas and other tips for regular blogging.

This is what they have got to say as their first post

Here at WordPress.com we like blogs. We like bloggers. And more than anything else, we like bloggers who blog.

But one hard part of blogging is beyond the awesome tools you use. It’s the posting. Coming up with ideas, writing them down, or picking the right photos, can be quite the challenge. And then you need the courage to hit that Publish button.

As announced today, to help you we’re launching this experimental blog called The Daily Post. We will post every day here, hoping to inspire you to do the same.

We’ll have inspiring questions from Plinky.com you can re-use in your posts, insightful interviews with rock-star bloggers,  and fresh ways to think about blogging. We’re doing this to help build a community of people who want to be more active writers, bloggers, and creators.

More to come soon!

For now, subscribe to this blog and get ready to roll in 2011.

Well, this is too good. WordPress is slowly becoming the best blogging tools, services and more and more.

Wish you luck. Hope this Daily Post inspires other budding bloggers and they also blog daily.
