She cracks me up so much that I am beginning to develop a fear. You see, my facial lines are increasing at an alarming rate lately. I have spent money on expensive creams to take care of them but they don't seem to be diminishing. But hey! These are lines of joy! Halleluyah!
The 5 reasons why I blog :
First - I started a blog because I wanted to participate in a Blog By Mail (BBM). What's that? It's actually to send a homemade treat or a favourite food item to another participant within a certain time frame. It could be: a jar of jam, a few homemade cookies, a local or regional specialty.... On the scheduled date, post about my experience. I exchanged food items with a partner from another part of the world. Participants were from USA, Europe, Asia and as far as Africa! Sounds fun. Yes, it was! I want to do it again.
Second - My son, Jaymes has a blog. He asked me to start one so he could read my thoughts. (No, he didn't tell me this, I figure it out.) Sneaky guy. I cannot read his blog (have to respect his privacy) but he could read mine. *roll my eyes*
Third - My blogging didn't take off until I got challenged by this nimcompoop from Jaymes' school A parent or a teacher who commented on a post that I "couldn't write well and my posts were not interesting"! Well, I made her eat shit, didn't I? hahahaha.....
I know! I know! I have mentioned this countless times on my blog and boy! am I proud of myself for having come this far!
Fourth - When I first achieved the 3rd reason, I thought of giving up blogging. But I continued to blog when I discovered BlogExplosion's Battle of the Blog. I started writing better & more interesting posts. I put in great effort. I put up my first post for competition in January 2007.
But it was a disappointment. I can't tell you how many times I got defeated by blogs that sux. One, I was an Asian among the mainly Caucasian bloggers. Then I discovered it was rigged. Many of the participants ganged up with at least 8 bloggers (15 votes, you need 8 to win) and they constantly voted for one another. I discovered this evil scheme when I did a study on it. If you have a MyBlogLog widget, you can see the cheaters.
Fifth - I have a large base of regular readers - more of international bloggers than local. I see you on my tracking statistics. hehehe... yes, I have a tracking system. Some of you commented but many don't. It's ok. I am happy as long as you come to visit.
I want to thank each and every one of you who drops in.
I love you all! muaaack....
I'm not gonna tag anyone, but I would like you to think about why you are blogging and maybe make a comment. Let me know, I would like to know the reason(s) you blog.
