What is your blog address? What subjects do you deal with?
What was it that made you create your blog? On what date did you start it?
When it was time for me to pick out my colleges i realized that there's thousands of other teens going through what i'm doing (applying to college, stuck in an unfamiliar place, coming across obstacles) or at least they already went through it.
I started to feel this way on December 11 2009
What blogging system have you adopted and why?
blogspot.com does wonders for me because it's easy to get used to.
How many visits a day do you get? What type of comments do you receive?
Since my blog isn't really known to the world only to my friends(ha-ha...ha), i don't get alot of visits and i don't recieve many comments...any at all. lol
How has 'having a blog' contributed to your life?
My life is not...normal. I'm not the kid who has the mom who they get to see everyday, or the dad that they get to see at all. I have the mom that's works 24-7 for the sake of her kids, a step-dad who's a bum, a dad who's all the way in Africa and i haven't seen him in five years, and a brother who does bad things and tells me not to do it before i even have the chance to say, "I wasn't even going to try." My life is interesting and i want to share it, so having a blog keeps me sane.
Have you created relationships with other bloggers or readers of your blog?
nope, but I want to if i ever get any commited readers :)
How often do you post? Does regular posting of your blog require a lot of effort on your part?
i post when ever something interesting happens, like i get accepted to a college or an event occurs. i want to post regular, but just because i want to, doesn't mean i will. if i had someone to personally ask me(email) to write something a couple times a week then i will.
Does blogging bring in income for you? Can one make a living from posting?
I never signed up for the money getting thing and someone can make a living from posting if their blogs are really popular.
How do you promote your blog?
I don't really promote my blog, i should though, huh? Um, if i write something that i want people to read then i'll just tell someone through myspace or face to face.
How would you define your readers? Have you got a faithful audience?
i can't define something i don't have. unless it my friends, but that doesn't count because their my friends, lol. i wish to one day have a faithful audience.
Are there any blogs you follow daily or regularly?
nope, it's hard to find someone eleses blog through the search thing.
Have you ever received gifts for blogging about your opinion of products or services? What do you think of bloggers who do that?
no and i think...nothing much, cause i don't care. (not to be mean, though)
How do you see your blog evolving in the future?
the only way my blogging is going to evolve is by me putting more time in it by posting regularly, adding pictures, and adding videos. i'll also have to advertise my blog.
What advice would you give to someone who wishes to begin a blog?
Use microsoft word to write on then copy and paste it on the blog thing because blogspot doesn't have the spell check or automatic capitalization thing. Oh and make it interesting. :)
