Sunday Stealing - Blogging

Sunday Stealing: Our Third Meme About Blogging

1. How did you come up with your blog title OR what does it mean? My blog title used to say Maria's Space, a little place to call me own. When you are married and a mom, there is nothing that is yours and yours alone. My blog is mine, all mine. {insert sinister laugh} Bwahahahahahah....

2. What are your general goals for blogging? I started it as a legacy for my children. A way for them to know who I was long after I am gone.

3. Do people “in your real life” know that you blog and do they comment on your blog OR is it largely anonymous? Everyone knows I blog because hell, I'm a blogger!!! Do they comment? No! I barely know if they read it.

How often do you post (x per week)? Every single day on my main blog. My secondary blogs are sadly being ignored.

4. How often do you read other blogs (x per week)? I try to read daily a few of the ones I frequent but I am always adding new reads to my list.

5. How do you select blogs to read (do you prefer blogs that focus on certain topics or do you choose by tone or…?) I love all blogs! Bloggers are so creative.

6. 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? I always copy my posts. Usually every 3 months I make sure I have them backed up. My goal is to create books for my children of any posts that talk about them.

7. What are the things you like best about blogging? Saving memories for the future. I love re-reading some of my posts especially when my babies were babies. There is so much you forget. Sometimes re-reading them makes see how creative I can be. I don't notice it when I am writing it but sometimes I am pretty witty.

8. What are the things you don’t like about blogging? There is nothing I don't like. Even negative comments which I have only had about a particular book I didn't love were interesting (see post and comments here).

9. How do you handle comments? Usually I try to comment back on my site and by email if their comment comes to my inbox from an email address. I also try to head over to their site to lend some comment love back.

10. Do you have any burning thoughts to share on blog etiquette? When I am hosting a giveaway, I would love if people followed the rules. I hate disqualifying someone.

11. Any desired blog features? I would love to have a search feature on my page. I also wish I could consolidate all of my readers, followers onto one widget.

12. Have you suffered blog addiction? In the first year I read a lot of blogs but now I have blogging down to a science. It takes me no time to get my posts up and often I draft a bunch of stuff and get it ready for posting.
