meme meme bo-beme, banana fana fo-feme...

i'm responding to miss lynn's tag, "why do i blog?"

seems like a simple enough question that you can ask any blogger out there, but i find myself pondering the essence of my existence in the blogosphere.

well, like any answer to a "why" question, let me start with "because"....

i blog because it allows me to exercise my thinking skills while i stare at the computer screen (sorry, i'm just not into sudoku! haha), putting my thoughts to keyboard, and then eventually sharing it with the entire cyber universe. i like to think of my blog as the online version of my regular, made-of-paper journal, but i must confess the contents of both are not always the same. there are private musings and records of daily experiences i'd like to keep to myself, and then i'd like to hand it down to my future offspring, if i am to have one.

i blog because everyone seems to do it nowadays (i started blogging in 2001)! it's another medium of communicating and interacting with others. i also love reading other people's blogs, taking delight in peeking into how they go about their daily lives in their part of the world. blogging is entertaining and informative...it's the cyber version of comfort food and a mug of hot chocolate on a cold winter night, although i still prefer the real thing! hehe.

i blog to keep note of the random things that pique my interest, even if they're not always significant to others. hey, that's why it's MY blog in the first place!

i blog because it's a way for me to share my digital photography of things around me or places i go to. i blog because it's a fun stress-reliever and a worthy excuse to go online. :)


Here are the guidelines from Monday Morning Power:

**Start Copy Here**

We have a voice;
We must be heard;
Therefore we blog;
Now spread the word!

This directory is based on a recent post that was conducted asking the question “Why do you Blog?” and the rewrite “Why do you Blog? - Reworked.” The purpose of this directory is to tell our tales by spreading the reasons that we blog to as many sites as possible. We get to explain ourselves, direct traffic to our site and highlight our most important, most representative or most relevant post in an SEO favorable format. This will be a positive experience for everyone who wants to get involved. This will enable you to create a short advertisement for your site that will be spread across the blogesphere; a growing directory of blogs.

This is an open directory. You do not have to be tagged to join in. All you have to do is follow the rules.

Please let me know when you have added your site by leaving a comment on “Master List” with a link to your post. This will insure an up-to-date list, giving you even greater distribution. You then need to copy the growing list back to your site on a regular bases.


1. Copy this post from the very beginning through **End List Directory** and place it in your archives (back date it so that it does not appear on your front page. This list is too long for your front page.) Title this post "Spread The Word" Directory
2. Copy from "**Start Copy Here**" through "**End Copy Here**"
3. Paste into a new post
4. Create an inventive post title
5. Write a brief introduction to the post.
6. Before “**End copy here**”, please add your name, site name (with link), a very brief description (2-3 sentences) of why you blog, and your most important, most representative, or most relevant post (with link.)
7. Create a link from the end of your new post to your archived Directory (Ex. "Click here for complete directory")
8. Tag others to participate. This is a request, not a requirement.
9. Leave a comment and a link to your post on “Master List.” That way I can grab your addition and add it to this growing list.
10. Schedule regular visits to the "Master List" so you can copy/paste into your archive, keeping your list current.

***about me: i blog under the cyber-nom-de-plume "fortuitous faery" in writings on the wall, a personal blog i created in 2001. my early posts have been mainly inspired by "bridget jones' diary" and were usually concise and no more than 3 sentences long. i originally blogged in the philippines, but have now transplanted my blogging wand in new jersey (land of bon jovi and campbell's soup). i blog because it allows me to exercise my thinking skills while i stare at the computer screen, putting my thoughts to keyboard, and then eventually sharing it with the entire cyber universe. i blog because i enjoy reading other people's blogs and have found that one can make new friends through it, while sharing one's take on life's everyday surprises, adventures and simple pleasures. i blog mostly about my travels, books and movies that have delighted me, and my life in new jersey. read about my adopted home state in my posts "a sunday in sussex" and "the beach of sand and fog".

**End Copy Here**
