Why do I blog?

Response to Madame Chiang's writing prompt on why I blog:

My blog started out on the promptings of my girlfriend. And it helped that I was already writing a column for a local paper to jumpstart the content. I guess it just so happened that a few other people were interested in what I had to say.

Now, it's not so much as wanting or needing to be heard as it is a writing exercise and a sometimes futile attempt at search engine optimization (oh, yeah, now I'm getting about $0.01 a day!) But at the same time, I've found that it helps as a platform to voice out on issues I feel strongly about. And, of course, now there's a growing community that I feel greater kinship with, and that's another good reason to blog.

  1. 1c a day, huh, that's way better than me. I got almost $50 in more than two years of blogging.

  3. btw, would you be open to making the large logo on the top left link to the main home page? I always want to click it, and nothing happens. Quite frustrating. Hehe
