1: When did you start your blog?
I started this particular blog on March 12th, 2013.
2: Have you had anyone online presence before? Another blog, YouTube etc?
I have been blogging since 1999, I can’t even remember the site, something similar to LiveJournal, but I don’t remember the site. My first domain I owned sometime in 2001. I also blogged in tons of other places and have facebook, youtube, twitte, tumblr, pintrest, instagram and ficker accounts among others not listed here.
3: Why did you start your blog?
I started first with just sites about things I was into and liked, then moved into blogging when I was going through a period of really heavy depression and social anxiety. I found it helpful. Still do.
4: When did you become serious about blogging?
Sometime around 2006 or 2007. I kept moving around though.
5: What was your first post?
Very first. Who knows. On this blog it was about Vertigo. You can read it here.
6: What has been your biggest challenge about blogging?
Trying to keep active. Sometimes there is just not much to say and other times I just don’t have the time. I also have a hard time coming up with topics even when I feel like posting and I have the time. The blog is mainly about me so I don’t really like doing paid blogging or picking topics I really have no interest in.
7: Where do you see your blog in one year?
Pretty much as it is now. With some new posts hopefully
8: What is the most rewarding thing to you about blogging?
Finding other bloggers that have something in common with me and who understand me. In the past some friendships have come out of it and maybe some will again. I have never actually met any fellow bloggers yet as I know some of you have. I guess I have never really met anyone I have connected that much with or that I was in their area or them in mine
9: What is the most discouraging thing that happens to you?
I would say lack of comments. Especially when I can see people are visiting. Just say hi
10: What is your lasting motivation?
Writing something that I can look back on years later and see how far I have come. Some of my earlier posts from other blogs are still online and I have found them before (nothing recently) but it is cool to read things that I wrote 10 years ago and see what the difference is now. Like I said this is mostly for me but if I end up having a post that makes someone else think or brighten their day. Then that is a pleasant plus. Not sure if that has ever happened but who knows.
