I Have Been Tagged Again – Why on earth do I blog?

Written by George Manty  · May 7, 2007

I have been tagged by Marco to tell you the reasons I blog. This is another blog meme. If you are tagged then you can write a post with a link back to the person who has tagged you, write a list of 5 reasons why you are blogging and finally, add a list of 5 other bloggers you want to tag with this question.

Here are the five reasons that I blog:

1. For Fun
This is the primary reason I started blogging. I blog for the fun of it. I enjoy blogging. The day I stop enjoying it is the day I stop blogging.

2. For Profit
I blog for money. I started some of my blogs primarily to make money, but I started all of my blogs on topics I enjoy.

3. For learning
I like to learn new things. This blog, in particular, gives me a chance to learn new things.

4. For Humor
The first blog I started as a creative outlet for my sense of humor. I have gotten away from that, but if I ever start a new blog there is a good chance it will be funny.

5. For Making New Friends
I have made some new friends by blogging. Even if I gave up blogging tomorrow, I would stay in touch with many of my blogging friends and keep up with their blogs.

I tag Chris, Amanda, Wendy, Garry, and Gayla.

The only thing I don’t like about these memes is choosing which bloggers to tag. I would really like to tag more of you…

like Rob, John, Daniel, Maki, etc…

Oh, what the heck… I tag all of you! If you want to be tagged, just let me know and I will add you to this list.

If you can’t tell, I have a hard time following rules:)

    Luckily I was tagged on this one long ago. So I’ll just have to sit back and enjoy your post as well as the answers from the rest of the people you tagged! šŸ˜‰

    This one was tons of fun. It gave me an opportunity to share with my readers more about who I am and what is important to me. Thanks for tagging me. I had to jump on this opportunity and get this article published today! Thanks again.

    Best Regards,
    Garry Conn

    Thanks Wendy.

    Nice list. I wish I thought had thought of number 3 on your list. It would have been number 6 on my list.

    I like your list too. I am thinking I would add number 3 from your list as well. What’s up with the number 3 today?

    Guess that would grow my list to seven things…

    Looks like everyone is making money online but me… well maybe is because I’m new to blogging šŸ˜›

    I’m blogging because:
    0) It’s fun
    1) I want to make money online
    2) I don’t like to work out of my house
    3) Community is a great word
    4) I like to design blogs (and learn how to do it)
    5) I like reading posts like this one

    I am wondering… what’s the protocol for tagging others with a meme? Do do it in a comment? or send an email? or what?

  10. George Manty on May 16th, 2007 2:33 pm

    Linking to them, usually does the job. But whenever I get tagged, people usually comment on my blog, sometimes they email me. I e-mailed Chris, if you were wondering…

    Good post on “Why Do I Blog?”. At least give ourselves a good reason to blog. At least we know what is our purposes. I guess this will help us to stay longer in blogging.

    I personally feel I blog for reason 2, 3 & 5 now. Hopefully I can find more reasons to blog… all the best.
