Why bloggers blog?

I was really wondering about why bloggers like me do blog? So I conducted a survey to ask my fellow bloggers about blogging. And ask them

For you what is Blogging all about?

Here are some snippets from the survey.

Here’s the meaning of blogging according to BlogBasics:

What is a Blog?
A blog is a frequently updated online personal journal or diary. It is a place to express yourself to the world. A place to share your thoughts and your passions. Really, it’s anything you want it to be. For our purposes we’ll say that a blog is your own website that you are going to update on an ongoing basis. Blog is a short form for the word weblog and the two words are used interchangeably.

Why do people Blog?
So you may be asking why anyone would want to have their own blog. We believe the answer lies in the fact that every human has a voice and wishes their voice to be heard. The Internet is a medium that is unparalleled in its reach. Never before have average people like you or me been able to reach a global audience with so little trouble. Bloggers have the opportunity of reaching hundreds or even thousands of people each and every day.There are still many people who like to share the details of their days. They may post twenty or thirty times a day, detailing when they ate lunch and when they headed home from work. On the other hand there are bloggers who give almost no detail about their lives, but write instead about a hobby or interest of theirs. They may dedicate their blog to something they are passionate about.In fact today the blog websites can provide hair tipsup-to-date news, technical information, celebrity scandalpolitical rumor, gets people involved in volunteering, advice on investments as well as there being blogs on cooking, health, gardening, sport, blogging blogs and of course many personal blogs and quite a few strange blogs.

Blogging for me is my outlet where I can express my creativity and where I can also share my first hand experiences about being a mom, a traveler, a foodie and also sharing my thoughts and stories. I also promote and blog about the events that I attended and products that I personally use. The articles that I write are for all the mommies and my readers, for them to be aware about my experiences that they may also encounter in the future. I don’t write for the sake of making myself popular, but this is my outlet where I can say what I really feel, No boundaries, no shame just the real me.

I am a writer and no one can take that away from me. You may tell me malevolent words and coercion but I will always tell the world about my story.


Special thanks to all the bloggers who answered my survey you guys really inspire me more to write and blog about my thoughts and experiences. You guys will always be part of who I am as a blogger/writer today. How about you guys why do you blog? comment your answer below I would love to read it :).

  1. Hmn, why do I blog? I blog for self-expression and catharsis. When I started blogging back in 2002 using another platform and set up a dotcom in 2008, my motivation was just to express myself, to let some steam off din, ganun. I am grateful that some people do read my blog, but not having any reader at all will not keep me from blogging. It’s just unfortunate that in the past months I have been busy with so many things that blogging took a backseat. But I’ll be back soon because I’m almost done with some urgent matters 😉

  2. Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring on other
    sites? I have a blog based upon on the same subjects you
    discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my audience would value your work. If you are even remotely interested,
    feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
