Yes, I have a blog and a YouTube vlog. I started out by blogging about food, recipes and money saving ideas, but I really enjoy reading books. So, part of my blog turned into book reviews. My family and I also visit the library ALL the time so on my vlog, I'm always sharing with my watchers what books I like and which ones I don't.

I blog on my website. I write about books I'm reading, my own works in progress and new releases, and some general life stuff (very much in moderation). Recently I've been able to share fan art that a fan made of my characters, which was REALLY exciting! I can't draw my way out of a wet paper bag, so seeing how someone else imagined my characters was pretty cool.

I blog because I'm a writer, so I write. My writing isn't always part of one of my works in progress, so it's nice to have a place to put some of those opinions and ideas. However, since my blog is part of my author website, it is geared toward writing/media/literary topics more than a personal blog would be.

I do! I write semi-regularly about my job. It helps me keep a record of strategies that have failed, worked, or need revision.

I blog a great deal, but I'm still getting into the habit of it. It has helped motivate me to write reviews share my writing in general.

I have a WordPress, mostly for game reviews and charting my progress learning Japanese by playing games. I haven't updated it in ages, though, really should get back to it.

Ramona wrote:I don't have a blog, but I'd like to. Just wondering about the time it would take... and if I'd run into a lot of writer's block if it were on a daily basis.
UPDATE:
I started a blog in October and have submitted to it only three times (about two weeks apart) because we've been busy with many things. We are snow birds and now that we are in the south for the winter, I wanted to get a pattern of regular submissions started-- at least once or twice a week. I went to the blog and no longer can I find a way to submit new posts to it. Even though I sign in, it's like I'm observing it by a reader instead of the writer of the blog! I've tried for two days now to figure it out. I've written to the site (where it gives a chance to write to them if one is having issues with the functionality of the blog) but so far I've heard nothing in reply.

My blog is titled ***** and my purpose is (WAS!!!) to write "a little of this and a little of that based on how my memories may apply to current life. Memos are musings that can lend to thoughts about music, art, literature, education, sewing, crocheting, growing up on a small farm, visiting the big city, family, God and more... and not necessarily in that order! One never knows what will turn up, but there will be thoughts about many things wherever my musings may take us."

I have another writing already to submit and was so excited to do so!!! Well, I'm not quite ready to give up yet! I may have to cancel that blog and start a new account, which I really don't want to do, but we'll see what happens in the next day or so.

NEW UPDATE!!!
I went back to the blog site again after supper tonight and I solved the problem!!! YAY!! I have several email addresses and somehow(!!)I had signed into the blog with the wrong email address!!!! :shock: New post is now submitted!! :D

I do! I have a blog at (removed by mod) but I actually feel like it's more of an online portfolio than a blog. I love being able to share my work with others and I would love for some of you to take a look :)

I blog because I love expressing my thoughts. I like to put my blog as that outlet because I'd easily connect to others who feel the same about a subject.

I do blog. I write, as of right now, for a class, but I might integrate it into my every day life. I'm becoming a teacher, so a lot of my posts are about education and integrating certain topics into our education.

Anyone that is interested, feel free to take a look!
I'm on Blogger,

I've thought about posting a blog for bookworms but I have a hard time finding the time to even start one.
