What does blogging mean to me?

1) Name the person, with link, who tagged you.

2) Complete the questionnaire without changing the questions.

3) Tag other people. This tag is a questionnaire to be answered on the topic "What does blogging mean to me?" I was tagged by Hope.

QUESTION 1: Are you happy/satisfied with your blog, with its content and look?

Appearance: Definitely not, but it will have to do until I do some changes after the new baby arrives. I will have new look, and probably a new blog name! I am ready for changes (in my life, and in my blogger world!)

Content: Nope. I feel like I don't have enough time to devote more to my blog!

Look: The look of my blog is very boring!

QUESTION 2: Does your family know about your blog?Yes they do, and sometimes that is good, and sometimes that is bad.

QUESTION 3: Do you feel embarrassed to let your friends know about your blog or do you just consider it I private thing?Nope, it is my outlet getting things out when I need to. But, sometimes I cannot say EVERYTHING because that would mean my family reads that lol.

QUESTION 4: Did your blog cause positive change in your thoughts?I would say that sure, for the most part it has.

QUESTION 5: Do you only open the blogs of those who comment to your blog or do you love to go and discover more by yourself? I visit my blog readers who comment, and I surf on my own. I am always discovering new things and people that way! It is a lot of fun!

QUESTION 6: What does your visitor counter mean to you? Do you care about put it in your blog?I have a counter, and my goal is to get more readers! Enough so that I can get famous one day ;D

QUESTION 7: Did you try to imagine your fellow bloggers and give them real pictures? Do you mean like putting a face to a name?! Well sure! Don't we all do that?

QUESTION 8: Do you think there is a real benefit to blogging? In some ways yes, it allows me to remember parts of my day that I may not remember next week. Blogging gives me time to myself, and getting a good laugh or two also.

QUESTION 9: Do you think that bloggers society is isolated from the real world or interacts with events? I think like life, blogging has to be an balancing act!

QUESTION 10: Does criticism annoy you or do you feel it's a normal thing? Yes it annoys me, especially when it is my blog, my feelings and a blogger attacks. I don't think that is fair. That is why I read the comments first, and choose to post the comments I want to. Some of them are not worthy of posting. And, I will not respond. No need to add fuel to the fire so to speak.

QUESTION 11: Do you fear some political blogs and avoid them? I chose not to go there.

QUESTION 12: Did you get shocked by the arrest of some bloggers?I hadn't heard about this! Doesn't surprise or shock me though.

QUESTION 13: Did you think what would happen to your blog after you died? Yes I have. And, I hope my kids or family would keep the blog up for me! (I better make a mental note to give my passwords and stuff to my family ;D)

QUESTION 14: What do you like to hear? What's the song you might like to put in a link, in your blog? I love the sound of peace and quiet after a long day, but I also really enjoy hearing the sounds of my kids and my family when they are all behaving. As for a song? Wow. Big Girls Don't Cry by Fergie. Or, maybe Little Wonders by Rob Thomas.

Tag : YOU'RE IT!
Blogger's note: It didn't say how many people to tag, and I only know a few, and Alphonse only picked three, so here are my three:

Cynthia - A good friend, who is so talented with her graphic design and a loving mother! She is expecting her 2nd baby in March 2008.

April - My sister, and good friend who is almost completed her first year of motherhood!

Alyson - A blogging friend, who if lived next door to me would be a very close friend. Kindred spirits right Alyson! ;D

I especially liked your honesty with question 10. Most people would say "Oh I just luuuuuv criticism". I was honest, too. I hate criticism. It makes me very anxious.

These are fun to do. I think so. Some people don't like them.
