Any bloggers here?

I have an idea for a blog but need to get a better understanding of what I would be committing myself to before doing it.

Anyone care to share their experience with me?

1. I just put my most original ideas or posts in the DU "journal". Got some great feedback from family

and friends when I gave them the link.

2. I've had a blog for quite a few years

The link is in my sig.

It doesn't have to be a commitment at all. Some people make it a point to blog every day, or some such schedule. I just post an entry when I have something I feel like saying and when I have the time to write it. Blog posts can be quite short and casually written.

4. Thanks for the response

Please tell me why you chose blogspot.

I've been looking at blogger.com and WordPress.

5. Pretty much by default, as I remember

This was before the alternatives had taken off. It does what I need, so I've had no reason to change.

6. I blog quite a bit

I started my own website with two seperate blogs but I also have blogs posted in blogger.com and wordpress and a business social site called IBO Social.

Lately, I've been blogging weekly on all sites. However, my main agenda is to get readers. I want the readers on my website but I find the other sites linking back to my website has driven traffic.

Mostly I blog when I have something to say that I think is important for others. So I may go a couple of weeks without anything, then all of a sudden post blogs daily.

I really like wordpress' layout and design better than blogger, however, I have more readers on blogger. IBO Social is really great. It's mostly a site for entepreneurs but I find that they really like to read posts of a different calibur besides simply sell, sell, sell. Does not take long at all to gain support on that site. Plus they share what they like around the web everywhere, so more people are likely to find your blog posts from somewhere.

Check out my site if you would like to see what I do and how I do it!
