  4. Did blogs cause positive changes in your thoughts?
    Yes and no.

Care to answer these questions?

#8: Everytime I post to my blog, I tried to write it in English so that I will force to use my baluktot composition. And it doesn't matter to me if what readers think. Absolutely, blogging helps to improve my writings and I get ideas from others too.

Jo, I will tag you soon. It's a little bit complicated though.

I enjoy blogging, it helps me overcome boredom. Nobody in the family (back home) knows my blog except my hubby of course. Sya ang gumawa ng blog ko eh.

here are my answers :)

1. re look, i'm ok with it for now. it took me a while to find a "minimalist" theme that i can live with and i'm quite satisfied naman. as for content, well, i can only write what i can, but ultimately the verdict belongs to the readers. :)

2. yup, i think most of my family members know. unfortunately, some of them are quite technologically challenged so not all of them get to read it as often.

3. nope, i don't mind. in fact i prefer that all of them know about it. when i write about the goings-on in my life, i find that it's my way of keeping in touch.

4. yes and no, din.

5. i make it a point to visit the blogs of my visitors, but i also love to hop around. i discover new ideas and friends that way.

6. i have a counter on my blog but i hardly am able to view the statistics (delinquent!). it's interesting to know who, how many, and from where the visitors of my site are. pero siyempre, i write for myself so i'm not too concerned about the traffic. having visitors is simply a great bonus. :)

7. i'm not very particular about how my fellow bloggers look like, i'm more interested in what they have to say (write). but i put some of our pictures in my blog, too. so far, wala pa naman akong stalker, hehe.

8. yeah. at least for me, blogging is cathartic. generally, i think blogging gives us a space in this otherwise huge electronic world. it gives us the medium to express ourselves and our ideas, and have immediate feedback if we choose to. as for pro-bloggers the money generated from blogging isn't so bad, too.

9. I agree with you, it depends on the blog that you read.

10. Constructive criticisms, I like. It's the malicious ones I don't care for. :)

i use my blog to let our family back in the Philippines know the goings-on in my life...plus some of my friends too...in fact, that was the same reason why i wanted to have one ever since i started in 2001...

i dont write well, kaya pictures na lang ako...and those who read and visit can scan them in a few seconds and leave - or if they have time, they read and participate in the conversations in the comments section...

2 years ka na Jo, nag bo blog...bilis ng panahon noh?
