How long have you been blogging?
Why you started blogging?
I started blogging because I felt like I needed an outlet for some of my thoughts. For whatever reason, simply sharing my genius ideas with my family and friends just wasn’t enough. I get a unique type of satisfaction from hearing that people enjoy my work, and I guess the yearning for it has become a bit of an addiction.
Favorite blog you own?
Favorite blog that is not your own?
Boom For Real. It’s mainly on music. I’ve learned about a lot of cool stuff from there. http://boomforrealblog.com/
What tips would you give to someone wanting to start a blog?
I think it really depends on what you want out of your blog, but if you’re looking for traffic, you’ve really got to have a solid theme. Try and find a particular something that you enjoy posting about. I find these to be a lot more successful than ones that post about a whole hodgepodge of things. Unless, of course, you’re already famous or some sort of exceptional character. Then those are cool.
Where can someone reach you for follow up questions (E-mail, Facebook, Twitter, etc. )?
My opinion: I first came upon Understanderman’s blog by chance. I was just going through random WordPress blogs to read and leave an informative comment with a link in case he wanted to do an interview. Luckily he was gracious enough to do an interview, so I guess my commenting is working. Yay for me :-)
I liked the way he describes the satisfaction of pleasing a blogging audience as “addiction”. I think it is addicting because it is so much more difficult to please someone online. It is tough to feel someones humor through the internet, so when you come across a genuinly funny blog like Amatuer Psychologist is then I bookmark it. Be sure to read a couple blog posts. It just might make your whole day. This guy is truly that funny. His brain thinks diferently than most, and that is a good thing!
