Bloggy Meme

1. How did you come up with your blog title OR what does it mean?
let’s see, for the other one, its literal meaning is thoughts that spontaneously grow. as explained on the about page, a seed is planted in the mind, and from there, the stories blossom forth. this one’s name means a log of thoughts, or a journal. i guess i should actually switch the names…

2. What are your general goals for blogging?
well, lately it’s been to finish a nablopomo theme. 🙂 but it’s mostly for therapy, i guess. it helps me to write things out, even though i don’t publish a lot of them! 🙂 i guess another goal, especially for this one, is to just have something to do to pass the time. 😀

3. Do people “in your real life” know that you blog and do they comment on your blog OR is it largely anonymous?
i think it’s anonymous. at least, i don’t go around telling people that i blog. but someone who stumbles across it might figure it out.

4. How often do you post (x per week)?
during times when i take the nablopomo challenge, it’s daily.

5. How often do you read other blogs (x per week)?
oh, i read a lot of other blogs, daily. or almost daily, since some days i don’t fire up the computer at all.

6. How do you select blogs to read (do you prefer blogs that focus on certain topics or do you choose by tone or…?)
it’s not really a certain topic, but just, really, anything i find interesting. i think i go more towards those that are conversational and not so formal, but i do read some of those, too.

7. Do you have any plans to copy your blog entries in any other format, 0r do you think that one day, you’ll just delete it all?
oh, there have been many times i’ve just wanted to delete it all. so no, not copying them to anything. in fact, this may be gone already.

8. What are the things you like best about blogging?
i like seeing that other people suffer the same things i do. i like being showed different ways to look at situations. i like learning about other people, languages, cultures. i like reading about things i could never experience, or even things i can, but through the eyes of someone else. i like to share in the laughs, empathize with the struggles, and cry at the losses. these are all the great things i love about people blogging.

9. What are the things you don’t like about blogging?
the pressure of having to produce something noteworthy.

10. How do you handle comments?
the only comments i get are spam, so they get deleted.

11. Do you have any burning thoughts to share on blog etiquette?
remember that not everyone agrees with you. people look at things differently. that doesn’t meant you’re right and they’re wrong. share your opinions without being condescending or attacking the other person. and points can be shared intellectually and calmly, without swearing.

12. Any desired blog features?
hmm. can’t think of anything right now?

13. Have you suffered blog addiction?
yes, i have. *ashamed*
