Thankful Thursday - Blogging

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Little by little
We meet in the middle
We compare notes
And we share quotes
Photos are edited
Photos are credited
Warm thoughts are given
Missteps forgiven
Wisdom is shared
And feelings are bared


Are you bit by the blogging bug?

I started blogging to share my articles at Triond, but you know what, I haven't posted an article there in a month, really! I have not missed a month of posting there since I joined up in 2007 but the pay has gone down so low. I made around $5.00 for my over 300 articles last month. But in the meantime I have been bit by the blogging bug. There are some themes "memes" I like better than others, but I loved blogging before I even became aware of the "memes". How about you? 

1. What is your favorite thing about blogging? 

I love the ones that challenge us to think, like Amanda's Thursday two questions, ABC Wednesday, and the microfiction challenge. It's fun to look at all the photos and happenings.

2. What would you like to do with your blog that you feel limited on? 

I see so many of your lovely blogs that do things I am clueless on, like Amanda, Icy and some others give a summary of a post then put the link to read more. Amazing! How do they do that? I would like to find a quicker way to return visits. I click on a name it takes me to a profile then I have to search through a list of their blogs to decide which one to visit. I would like to go right to their post.

This post linked to Thursday Two Questions! Thank you for your visit. Take care, stay healthy, and God bless!!

I tried triond once and gave up.. My account there only has like $0.02 and way far from any cash out limit. I find it more meaningful to write on my blog.
What I like about blogging is that I a get to write about what I like. I also like visiting other bloggers to read and see what they have on in their blog.

2) At the present I still lack information on how to grow my blog and increase in page rank.
Regarding your question about exerpt.. all based on the template which you use for your blog. Some templates allow you to display part or whole post. or you can install common luv plugin and it will take you to that commenters latest post.

I love your poem Judy, that sums up blogging quite well.

My favorite thing is interacting with other bloggers. My favorite memes are TTQ, Thursday Theme Song and the different flower memes on the weekend.

There are lots of things I would like to try on my blog but time is the problem.

I use either my dashboard or Google Reader and go straight to blog posts rather than the profile.

1) I love blogging more than writing article at the moment. It is original, with my own thought, rather than repeating the same subject over and over ten thousand times.

2) The Read More function is nice, and takes just a little code. You don't need it, REALLY!

Cute & clever little poem you shared with us. You're multi-talented, poetic & photographer.

Participating in memes & blogger interaction via comments has bloosomed as my newest addiction.

On Mondays, I'm tied to Monday's Music Moves Me and I would love it if you would join the Love Train.

Tuesdays, I do three different hops all within the same post. This is my time to get random in my writing.

Hump-day, I play along with two others who post questions for us to borrow, answer, & link in our own blog post creation.

Naturally, Thursdays I weave my Alphabe-Thursday & T2Q posts as one, which I found works beautifully for me.

Fridays, I may or may not blog hop. It depends if it's an off Friday for my DH. I try to schedule my Friday Sillies to go up regardless if it's off or on Friday for me.

I'm like you, when it comes to trying to visit another person's blog. Sometimes it can be difficult, if they have not linked up or left a blog tag for those who have more than one blog. I just do my best and try to not sweat it. You should do the same.

You're being funny today!hehe.
The more you're at it the better you become. The "read more" is very simple. If you are in the compose mode when composing your post, there is an icon - next to insert a video, just place it where you want it to cut and it will cut the post for you - and replace with the link "readmore"
1) favorite thing about blogging? Being able to voice my thoughts...yep...write...connect.
2) Nothing, I am still working on it day after day. there is so much to do...I can use a new arrangement, a new header, a new font, a new...yep...I am never content.
Thanks for your post and linking up. I do love the Thursday Two Questions meme, especially when you all are so honest and fun to converse with.
Just in case you want to: If you have Wednesday Posts and interested in linking up - Blogger Broadcast offers a Linky every Tuesday night / Wednesday. YOU ALL ARE WELCOME to link-up, whether it's Wordless or not.

1. I like blogging for the interaction with other bloggers.

When people ask me about blogging I relate it to having pen pals and then go on to tell about ship logs and that the "b" stands for the last letter in the word Web and "log" is like a ship's log or a journal. Together a 'weB LOG' is like having a 'Web Log'.

I then tell that I have around 100 on-line pen pals. They began to get the picture a little bit.

2. Time is my limit. I often work on my blogs and reading others for over an hour a day. It is a good thing that I am retired.

I do enjoy writing poetry though I'm not real good. I belong to group called 'One Single Impression' and we post a poem at the beginning of every week. Mine are on 'Jim's Little Photo and Poem Place.'

Some write a lot more poetry but here again time constrains me.

I post mine on Saturday night. Sometimes I work on it on and off during the week. Other times I put together a 'quicky' haiku or short 'post something' poem.

My favorite poem to write is like a ballad, telling a story.

You had really good questions this week. Sorry I went overboard on my answers.

Happy Thursday Two Questions Day, Judy!

I love your writing below that great photo Judy! You are very good!

My favorite thing about blogging is the sharing and the learning.

2. I want to share about 'me' but I feel it's too public now. That's why I had started in the beginning. To just blog my pain, to get it out. But now my blog has gone away on a path.

Happy Thursday.
