Ask The Community: What Do You Blog About and Why?

The following post is from James of Google+ Tutorials:

My last blog here at Blogging Your Way was titled Does Your Blog Have Clear Direction? In that post, I talked about the importance of our blogs having a good focus so that your audience can know exactly what to expect every time they come by your blog, and that actually by limiting your content to a specific niche, you are more likely to build a loyal base of readers.

In the comments, I was replying to a question that someone had asked, and it really got me thinking again about our motivation for blogging and the topics that we blog about. I am sure that there is a wide range here in this community, and I thought that it would be really great for us to have a discussion about this. Not only would it help us here at Blogging Your Way to know the sort of posts that would be helpful to you in reaching your goals, but also a great opportunity to discover new blogs written by others in the community and finding out the motivation behind them. Pretty cool idea right? I think so!

I thought that we could all introduce ourselves, our blogs and our motivation. So what I would like to propose that we do is each answer three questions in the comments below. This will be a great opportunity to discuss, discover, and grow as bloggers!

The questions that I would like as many people as possible to answer in the comments are as follows:

1) What is the web address of your blog

2) What is your blog about?

3) What is your motivation for blogging?

(Fame, fortune, sharing knowledge, meeting new people, being involved in a community, etc!)

Perhaps we will all find some new blogs to add to our Google Reader!

I am really looking forward to seeing some of your blogs, talking to you about your blogging motivations and making some new connections!

Let’s go! Answer the three questions from above in the comments below!
