In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Million-Dollar Question.”Why do you blog?
Initially it was a way for me to write about the books I read. I quickly found out about the many book blogs out there and no I don’t have a favorite. I started a book blog and called it Jackie’s Bookbytes after unsuccessfully blogging for a few years without purpose. I took part in Alphabe Thursday hosted by Jenny Matlock and that was harder then I thought.
I blog because I like using html [hypertext markup language]. I taught myself how to make links and images but I have to say I still haven’t learnt how to write a good blog post and/or book review. I’m not too concerned about it though and I don’t consider my blog to be professional by any standard. Not at all.
I blog just for the fun of it and I like changing the look and feel of my blog every so often. I still haven’t found the right theme for me. They all have their quirks that I don’t like and I choose not to pay the hefty price for a premium theme either. I figure since my blog is just for fun it would be such a waste of money.
I also blog because I like to type. I took typing in school but never did anything with it so blogging is really the only platform I can practice my typing skills. My boyfriend says I type really fast and he’s amazed so yes I type fast.
I still write book reviews but not as often and I use the Daily Prompt on wordpress. I have two blogs, one on blogger and one on wordpress. I also have a twitter account and numerous other social sites. I guess being on the internet as much as I am it’s crucial for me to interact with others either by blogging or tweeting, otherwise it would be boring I think.
I blog because there is nothing else to do.
