I blog because...

Got this from Puteri. Please feel free to join in.


**Start Copy Here**

We have a voice;

We must be heard;

Therefore we blog;

Now spread the word!


This meme is based on a recent post that was conducted asking the question “Why do you Blog?” and the rewrite “Why do you Blog? - Reworked.” The purpose of this meme is to tell our tales by spreading the reasons that we blog to as many sites as possible. We get to explain ourselves, direct traffic to our site and highlight our most important, most representative or most relevant post in an SEO favorable format. This will be a positive experience for everyone who wants to get involved. This will enable you to create a short advertisement for your site that will be spread across the blogesphere; a growing directory of blogs.


This is an open meme. You do not have to be tagged to join in. All you have to do is follow the rules.

Please let me know when you have added your site by leaving a comment on “Complete List” with a link to your post. This will insure an up-to-date list, giving you even greater distribution. You then have the option of copying the growing list back to your site.


Rules:
1. Create an inventive post title.

2. Write a brief introduction to the meme.

3. Copy from “**Start Copy Here**” through “**End Copy Here**” .

4. Paste into your post.

5. At the end of the “*list*”, before “**End copy here**”, please add your name, site name (with link), a very brief description (2-3 sentences) of why you blog, and your most important, most representative, or most relevant post (with link.)

6. Tag at least 5 others to participate.

7. Leave a comment and a link to your post on “Complete List

Hi! My name is Crystal, my middle name actually. I am the author of Choc Mint Girl. I started to blog because I need my own space to ‘just write’, but what I find here is quite inspiring and I am amazed at how many different bloggers with different approach ended up as great friends and inspire each other. It doesn’t matter what I blog about as long as the two parties find the connection in one another, that will be the best reason of why do I actually blog. I guess my most relevant post is my very first innocent post, Getting Started.

I have never really kept a diary and blogging is as good as keeping a diary. I have six blogs - Puteri’s Musings, Puteri’s Musings 2, Puteri’s Musings 3, and Health and Beauty Notes, are four of them. My favorite post is D-I-V-O-R-C-E, because that was my second post when I first started blogging and one of the main reasons for me to start blogging. I needed to put into words the way I felt when my dear friends went through a divorce.

Hi Nightwing ... I had to look for the definition of 'meme'. Haha at me! There are some interesting blogs to wander to from this post of yours. Thanks!

I must add that your reading selection is impressive and you write good reviews. I used to read a lot but have been neglecting the habit lately. Should pick it back up.

Don't forget to do No.7 so the list can be updated!

You have been added to the master list. Thanks for participating.

Now be sure to make regular visits back and copy/paste the entire list to your site. That is what will keep this list growing and bring benefit to everyone who participates.

I am looking for a never ending run on this directory. I am currently thinking of ways to display the increasing size on everyone's site. I do have a couple of ideas:
1. Peek-a-boo post
2. Archive the list and have a button on everyone's sidebar that links to their archived list
3. Have a button that would link to my Master list – This is currently available on my site.
