Why Do You Blog Meme

Mzmazzola, who is an English teacher, has her AP Literature and Composition students working on their seniror project. One of her own projects is about blogging, and she asks some questions which I have decided to answer here as a blog post. Check it out yourself on the State of Denmark blog.

1. How long have you been blogging? Since 2006
2. Why did you start blogging? I wanted to review and talk about books.
3. What have you found to be the benefits of blogging? I have met many great bloggers.
4. How many times a week do you post an entry? That varies a great deal. Sometimes only once, sometimes every day. But usually a post or two a week.
5. How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis? Many!
6. Do you comment on other people’s blogs? Yes, I try to comment on every blog I visit.
7. Do you keep track of how many visitors you have? Is so, are you satisfied with your numbers? I wish I knew how to keep track, but I have no idea.
8. Do you ever regret a post that you wrote? No, not really. My blogs are not controversial.
9. Do you think your audience has a true sense of who you are based on your blog? I hope so, even though I rarely blog about personal things. But through comments and the odd personal info here and there, I hope so.
10. Do you blog under your real name? Yes, but not under my last name. I am not blogging anonymously though.
11. Are there topics that you would never blog about? I don't think so. But I try to keep my blog as close as possible to the main subject of the blog.
12. What is the theme/topic of your blog? Books, literature and book related subjects.
13. Do you have more than one blog? If so, why? I am Danish, so I also blog about books in English. I am also an Egyptologist and blog about Ancient Egypt in Danish, and have recently begun blogging about Egyptology in English as well.

Very interesting post :)

I think your followers get to know you, but perhaps we often learn more about each other through commenting and discussing posts. At least that is the way I experience it.

If you should like to count your visitors, sitemeter which I use is free. You can set it to private so you are the only one who can see how many visitors you get, where they come from etc.
It does not say much about the quality of one´s blog, but I think it is fun to see how many countries my visitors come from.
