Topic: Why did you start?

Topic #14:

Disclaimer: these are optional – if you don’t like ’em, don’t use ’em. Feel free to post something else, or explain why you don’t like this topic as your topic. It’s all good.

Here’s today’s topic idea:

What made you decide to start a blog? If you’ve blogged about this before, go back and read it. Is that still the reason? What’s changed?

Reminder: Do not answer this in the comments. That would be very silly. You should grab this topic and write a post about it on your blog.

  1. What I like best about this suggestion is the lack of the usual “if it doesn’t fit” disclaimer…

    If this suggestion doesn’t fit your blog’s general topic (e.g. Your blog is about never having blogged and never intending to start blogging) that’s ok. Simply apply the question by adding or changing some words.


    But, putting the snarkiness aside, this may actually make a good suggested topic – what are the challenges you face when blogging?


    1. The complaints from people about how specific topics don’t work for them have slowly quieted down. It took awhile, but don’t need that disclaimer any more.

        Just you may find yourself cursed and on some weird island with a polar bear and a guy called Jacob…


  2. After I blog since 2008… Why? Though I have the answer, I never blogged about it.
    Great topic and the post is coming soon.

    Aripi de îngeri să-ţi atingă sufletul, să ia cu ei toate supărările, lăsând în schimb lumina, iubirea, sănătatea, dragostea , fericirea, speranţa şi credinţa….La multi ani cu bucurie!….. .


  4. I have started blogs for a number of reasons:
    the one on wordpress: to learn more about Html from a class I took at
    a local arts cooperative, to have a journal and look for like minds, to
    express my arts and to think about political and social issues.

    By the by, I think your prompts are interesting!


  5. I like that topic “Why did you start blogging”. I might have to expand on that one in my blog.

    Thank you so much for the topic ideas that are sent daily.


  6. I started blogging (more) in 2011 because I started a challenge to buy everything I need from a Goodwill store (except food, toiletries and prescription items).
    It has already been receiving a GREAT response and I can’t wait to share all the new information, new community members and of course the awesome THRIFT FINDS with my blog to everybody!


  7. Lovely topic…however…I am still mulling over the idea of blogging about something I have never talked about…the range is SO wide.
    My goodness…the more I think about this topic the more I like it…my whole style has completely changed since I started blogging(not on this forum)…yep…this is a brilliant idea.


  8. I started to originally drive more traffic to various websites i managed a few years ago, but now, I still do that, i just put more thought into the original posts i write and enjoy the chellenge of attracting more veiwers to my blog everyday


  9. I think that is a superb idea – finding out everyones motivations and that is great. I know i’m learning so much about myself and i’m bettering my skills also. People have said that they’ve been moved by my posts. That makes it all worth while.


  10. Olá Scott, sabe você me parece ser muito delicado, eu gosto do seu jeito.
    Creio que já deu para perceber, que comecei o meu blog: Por causa do meu livro editado, para continuar o meu trabalho de orientar os leitores a se alimentar de uma maneira mais correta, ou seja para manter a saúde em dia.
    Esse é o meu objetivo, e conseguir editar o meu segundo livro.
    Receba o meu abraço, Mina!
