I Made a Blog... Post YOUR Blog
« on: 05 Aug 2013, 13:22 »

***Note: if there is another topic like this already, I apologize in advance; and request that this thread be merged with the original.***

Hello.
I actually do blog ..sorta.
I've got it buried in a fan site for my favorite hobby.
I've had it up and running for 2 years and 250 posts.
Hope you like:

www.madcap156.wordpress.com - The blog I'm most dedicated to. Been at it for the best part of four years. A music blog called Do They Have To Use Drums?
www.geneticallymodifiedhughes.wordpress.com - My very neglected literature blog. Not many posts on it but I'm very happy with the ones that are.
www.pronomo.co.uk - My occasionally edited culture website that I co-run. Planning on making it more legit once I move back to Manchester.

I don't have a blog (though I have a couple of websites); but there's this forum (well, two actually) I sometimes put bloggy stuff up on...

My main blog at the moment is my cooking blog, Faint with Hunger, although posting comes in waves. I've also got a personal blog which I think is pretty boring unless you're a real-life friend or family member of mine (and probably even then); it's linked from the food blog.

my blog rambles.
I post pretty much whatever catches my eye, and doesn't foul the forum's censor software.

I have blogs, but they're more of the typical tumblr blogs.

I have a blog that's just for photos I find pretty/soothing to look at and quotes, poems, prose that appeals to me.
http://hortusdegardenias.tumblr.com/

The other one is just fandoms I'm into, things that make me laugh, political opinions, and just general things that I find cool/interesting.
http://sometimesiblog.tumblr.com/

The last one is for the more "twisted" side of me. The only reason I have a specific blog for it is because I feel it doesn't fit with the "theme" of my other blogs. Also, this one has music that plays automatically. I did that because I don't really get many views on that blog, and so I wanted to have something I can just open when I feel like listening to some of that  music.

My "blog" is sorta more like an idea-dumping ground for me. It was originally made to throw my poems at, but now it's the home for my English Adaptation Lyrics for non-english songs, and my poetry goes elsewhere: Hypocritical Paradox

My tumblr is the closest thing I have to a blog. I mainly post fashion related stuff. And cute boys.

I'm a bad blogger.  I haven't posted since January except to offer a tribute to a friend who passed.

Well, what's the "normal" frequency in which one should update a blog? I know the word "blog" makes me thing of a daily status-update-like thing, but I only update when I have something to update, since mine has a specific purpose.

One thing I learned doing journalism at university was Search Engine Optimisation - basically, make sure people find your blog.

My blog was originally named The Madcap Laughs after Syd Barrett's solo record, but of course, if you Google The Madcap Laughs, you find Syd Barrett's solo record...

But I kept it as that name until I could think of something no one else was using. Then coincidentally a few weeks later my dad told me that my great-grandfather, a big fan of choral and classical music, used to complain about jazz and bebop and such using percussion, saying, and I quote, 'Do they have to use drums?'

Music related... check... no one else on the internet has it... check... personal significance... check.

And if you Google 'do they have to use drums?' my blog comes up top.

I've basically stopped updating either of my blogs. I think a contributing factor was the fact that someone I know in real life but don't particularly like (I don't dislike him per se, he's just not very socially adept and makes me uncomfortable) told me that he'd found my blog and suddenly I felt weird about updating it when I knew he might be reading it. I realise that's daft since it's a public blog and anyone might be reading, but there it is.
