I like taking a topic & confessing about it... I can just randomly confess things but we could be here all day...
Today, my topic is: BLOGGING
... I've been blogging since 2007. That's a lot of talking.
... After all this time, I still don't understand how people make a living doing it. How they get paid & make money from it? ... how am I not knowing this secret?
... I originally started blogging thinking I would talk about knitting. Funny how all this time later, my arm feels like its ready to fall off & knitting is about the same as shoving needles in your eyes.
... I actually have learned things from people's blogs... from recipes to tips to some great Starbucks drinks I need to try.
... I wish I would have thought before I created the web address... which doesn't even match the name of my blog. Ever notice that? The web address is www.rebecca-belle.blogspot.com ... why didn't I make it www.knitbygodshand.com ... Because I'm stupid.
... think before you create permanent things
... I want to change my web address, but when I read about it, it says it wont re-direct anything so I'll probably loose all my readers... all 3 of you... (Hi mom & dad)
... I love bloggy friends. I really do. I feel like I know so many people & their families personally.
... It makes me sad when some of my favorite bloggers just disappear. That's not cool. I always wonder what happened to some of my favs. You can't just leave me like that people.
... I hate when people ask what kind of blog I have. I talk about so many things on here, I can't ever put myself in one category. If I had to, the category would be AWESOME... right?
... I love blog hops... its a great way to meet new bloggers
... When Google Reader went down, I thought I was going to panic... but ended up loving Blog Lovin' even more! Good lesson in life that there are better things out there.
... The way you can put blogs in categories on Blog Lovin' is the best thing ever. Not to mention the "Mark group as read" making my life much easier on busy days.
... I do have a 'favorites' category & I feel like when I move a blog into that group, I want to send them a card saying, "You made it" ... like they care. :)
... I always want to change my design but I'm clueless on how to do it. & too lazy to figure it out.
... I've never been to a blogging conference. I think I would be star struck to see some of my favorite 'big time' bloggers. #fangirl
... I love to look back on some of my old posts & see where I was at a few years ago. Blogs are really just glorified diaries.... that the whole world can peek into.
... My husband gets tired of me taking pictures & me telling him, "Its for my blog" ... only bloggers understand that.
... I hate when I can't respond back to a comment. Blogger just seems to randomly turn people's accounts into "no reply" accounts... I respond to every single one of my comments, so if you don't hear from me, you are a 'no reply' person.
... I'm now finding I'm getting comments that I'm not getting notified about... & these people are telling me they're getting errors when they comment. What is that about?
... sometimes I hate Blogger... but I equally hate Wordpress
... I don't think Tumblr is a real blog site... is it? Am I old for not knowing this?
... I usually start every day having no idea what I'm going to post about. It's usually just pull it up & whatever is on my mind. I see some people have folders & journals & spreadsheets on posts they are going to do. I applaud you... & just figured out why I'll never be one of those big time bloggers that get paid to do it.
What's your favorite thing about Blogging?
Are you an organized blogger who knows months ahead what you're posting?
Give me some topics you want me to confess about...
if I use your idea, I'll give a shout out to your blog :)
