Tagged: Blogging Chuva-Chu-Chu

Maiylah tagged me, so I'm answering this before I end up forgetting.

1. How long have you been blogging?

Last year. Actually my hub started it all here. My self-assigned "role" was just to send pics (of our son) and hub would put some captions and post these. He says he likes watching the pictures when he comes home after a hard day at work, and he finds himself all alone and missing "us" so badly.

Later on, I sort of "taken over" and I have the silly notion that hub was just too glad to relinquish the task (because he's so busy with work- projects, designs, programs,etc...)

2. What inspired you to start a blog and who are your mentors?

My husband. The early part of my blog, if you've read it, was I think too personal. I was actually using it to update him of what's happening in my and our son's life during his absence, and to deliver "messages" to my husband. Messages, issues that I have a fair chance of forgetting during our long talks over the phone (hours over the phone is too limited!). And when he's home, there'll be lots to (tell) talk about and some things just get in the backseat, so...

3. Are you trying to make money online, or just doing it for fun?

Fun, sure. Also, I love to write although apart from writing for school papers and applying for a slot in the local newspaper in another town, I have no real “claims to fame.” It’s really is just safe to say that I’m just a wanna-be. But it doesn't matter to me if I only have my hub as reader (then, early this year, a couple of friends) to the things I write (actually, for awhile I just kept it that way) and I wanted to practise, lest I forget the rules. (I have actually made lots of mistakes and everyday when I read on my previous posts I just wanted to edit or delete posts).

Anyway, it was only lately that I began to "come-out." And then, Maiylah encouraged me to go problogging. So now, my page is a little mixed up.

4. Tell me 3 things you LOVE about being online.

-I love being able to write (on the second thought, yes, heard).

-I love meeting friends and reading about their thoughts, experiences, about places they live, yaddi, yadda..

-I love learning.

5. Tell me 3 things you STRUGGLE within the online world.

-Spammers, need I say more? :D

-Keeping up with my friends' posts.

-Keeping up with my posts.

Now I'm tagging anyone who wants to do this. Give me a buzz once you're done so I can come over your place (at once :D).

My husband got me into blogging too. It was a way to keep friends and family updated when we moved out of state. I never thought I'd enjoy it so much!

Great post. I was giggling out loud when I read you were blogging messages to your husband. Oh how interesting they would be to read NOW!

Honey, take out the trash! :)

Wow, very interesting. Tagal mo na palang nag ba-blog noh, bang giitan na jud! I used to write like a conversation lang but later I started how to write in a different way. Ahem, maki dig nga sa archive mo.
