Who has a blog and what is it about?

I'm a serial blogger. The problem is that after about 10.000 views, I find I'm becoming repetitive, so I delete the blog and start another one, a few months later.

Who else has a blog and what is the subject?

Re: Who has a blog and what is it about?

Isn't it just the modern version of keeping a diary?

If you want to be bothered to read someone else's diary fine, I couldn't be bothered.

It's good to write down your thoughts, therapeutic even...

Re: Who has a blog and what is it about?

I used to follow several blogs...they were daily photo blogs and I enjoyed seeing all the different photos ,the blogger would often write a piece to go with their photo as well...
I dont blog myself as feel I wouldnt have much to blog about after a while..

No I don't have a Blog one and wouldn't want one.
I don't think myself or my life are sufficiency interesting to have one ...
...and if they were I would't have time to write a Blog

Re: Who has a blog and what is it about?

I'm old fashioned and the word 'Blog' just won't register with me, I've swallowed most of the new computer words but never blog. I think itís just another stupid word, what exacty does it mean? a diary is a diary full stop. There used to be a fictional character called Fred Bloggs, Fred was just an ordinary chap, or as they used to say back then ďThe man in the streetĒ thats the only Bloggs I ever heard of. I donít ĎBlogí unless someone else who blogs thinks itís blog, I never set out to blog and refuse to be a part of any blogging, I do a lot of talking about anything and everything but have never been accused of blogging so far, the word staggers on my tongue, it just wonít sit properly, a truly horrible sounding word in my opinion.

While Iím at it a few other terrible sounding words and terms I hate. Punk,Tweet, Get my drift (phew!)Thinking outside the box, Smuck, Awesome, and anyone whoís not American trying to be American by using American expressions, pathetic.
I feel better now thatís off me chest.

Jem I understand Blog is an abbreviation for Weblog and I agree it is an ugly word and sounds like a diary which was written in the loo ....(a boglog )

Re: Who has a blog and what is it about?

Commonly used these days by so called journalists to get their news. It saves them actually going out to report on certain things.
