This post made me think!

This is perhaps one of the hardest posts I ever did. Hehe, my apologies to Fortuitous Faery.. but this really made me think (which I am in dire need!) trying to decipher what to do!!! This was fun! should've finished this last week.... but it's this time of year for overtime at work!!!! Anyway...

I LIKE TO BLOG because....(this is taken from one of my posts way, way back as I was starting with blogging..daya ba?)

"..... Oh well! So far my venture into this blog addiction served me well. It's the best therapy in town. From day one that I decided to open myself up to the WWW, I was able to improve my writing, be a lot more creative, discover new things and most of all, made new friends here and abroad! "

In addition, blogging gives me freedom and the responsibility not to abuse it. Blogging about the right things, opinions, or anything under the sun gives my inner feelings, mind and imagination more than enough space to 'run around'. I blog because it is a diary of events that will remain--- pages won't turn brown or tear, ink won't fade or blot, pictures won't change its colors! I also blog because people out there don't really know me. They get to see the 'real' me.. take it or leave it. Read my post one time and decide whether it's worth it coming back to read more.

I initially blogged because of my art, my kids and my cats--- but now it seems that there is an endless list of possibilities, topics, opinions, etc. that I'd never knew I'd talk about.

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.

Rules:

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 my name Reia, in a blog initially put up so I can talk about my art, my kids and my cats, aptly named 'My Scratch Pad' -- a place where cats find satisfaction or relief from stress, as well as where 'humans' use for writing down thoughts, lists, or just doodle. I LIKE TO BLOG because, and I like to quote from one of my posts way, way back-- "..... It's the best therapy in town. From day one that I decided to open myself up to the WWW, I was able to improve my writing, be a lot more creative, discover new things and most of all, made new friends here and abroad! " In addition, blogging gives me freedom and the responsibility not to abuse it. Blogging about the right things, opinions, or anything under the sun gives my inner feelings, mind and imagination more than enough space to 'run around'. I blog because it is a diary of events that will remain--- pages won't turn brown or tear, ink won't fade or blot, pictures won't change its colors! I also blog because people out there don't really know me. They get to see the 'real' me.. take it or leave it. Read my post one time and decide whether it's worth it coming back to read more. I do try to get the humor out but I also get sentimental at times. One of my favorite family posts are Tears enough to rust metal and Unframed Peacock post for my art.

**End Copy Here**

That was a handfull! View the Complete Directory here!

Excellent job.

You are now on the master list.

As a participant there are two actions that you can do to help keep this alive:

1) Help, where you can, in getting more sites to participate. Adding the “Spread the Word” button to your sidebar is a great way of doing this (available on my site.)

2) Update your post, in archive, with the complete master list on a regular basis. It is this process that will entice other sites to participate and maximize the benefits for everyone. You will see, at the beginning of the master list, instruction on how to maintain this growing directory in archives. This list is at the point of being much too long for a front page post.

Thank you for participating!

You have already followed the direction meticulously. The only thing for me to add is to update your version of the list on a regular bases.
