3 Reasons Why I Love to Blog

I’ve been blogging regularly for business,  personally here on this blog, for clients, and for other publications around the web for over 10 years.

In short: I love the power of blogging and I regularly sing its praises to clients and friends alike. Here are three reasons why I love it so much.

1. There are no rules

…well, sort of.

You can make your blog whatever you want it to be. It can be for business, for lifestyle, an online journal; the sky is the limit.

Not only that; you get to write the rules on how often you want to post and what content you want to share.

You can decide how small or how big your network gets. You can choose to invite in other writers, or just keep your baby to yourself. You can market the blog as little or as much as you want to expand your readership.

How cool is it that you get to write the rules?

2. It’s a great way to document

Regardless if we’re talking personal blogging or for business, I love the documentation nature of it.

Whether I’ve learned something in life or in business, it’s nice to know I (or someone else!) can always refer back to my blog for the answers.

When we’re talking exposure to audiences who don’t know you, this premise can also help establish you as an expert in your niche.

3. It’s my way to think through things

I’ve always used writing to explore my thoughts and blogging is a great way of doing that.

I have a horrible memory, so writing things down is my way to mentally bookmark it. More importantly, writing has always been how I learn best (I re-wrote notes in school to study) and also how I process the best.


What do you love about blogging?

Born/bred in MD. Raised in ME. Transplant to FL. Entrepreneur, wife, mama, writer, puppy momma, Scorpio, fitness/nutrition enthusiast, eternal optimist.
I’m a strong, passionate, intense woman who has a thirst for life, knowledge, love, and the never-ending question of the meaning of life. I figure I’m bound to find it sooner or later.

  1. Hey. Soon your hosting account and your domain nickiong.com will be blocked forever, and you will receive tens of thousands of negative feedback from angry people.

    Here is a list of what you get if you don’t follow my requirements:
    + abuse spamhouse for aggressive web spam
    + tens of thousands of negative reviews about you and your website from angry people for aggressive web and email spam
    + lifetime blocking of your hosting account for aggressive web and email spam
    + lifetime blocking of your domain for aggressive web and email spam
    + Thousands of angry complaints from angry people will come to your mail and messengers for sending you a lot of spam
    + complete destruction of your reputation and loss of clients forever
    + for a full recovery from the damage you need tens of thousands of dollars

    Do you want this?

    If you do not want the above problems, then before June 1, 2019, you need to send me 0.3 BTC to my Bitcoin wallet: 19ckouUP2E22aJR5BPFdf7jP2oNXR3bezL

    How do I do all this to get this result:
    1. I will send 30 messages to 13 000 000 sites with contact forms with offensive messages with the address of your site, that is, in this situation, you and the spammer and insult people. And everyone will not care that it is not you.
    2. I’ll send 300 messages to 9,000,000 email addresses and very intrusive advertisements for making money and offer a free iPhone with your website address nickiong.com and your contact details. And then send out abusive messages with the address of your site.
    3. I will do aggressive spam on blogs, forums and other sites (in my database there are 35 978 370 sites and 315900 sites from which you will definitely get a huge amount of abuse) of your site nickiong.com. After such spam, the spamhouse will turn its attention
    on you and after several abuses your host will be forced to block your account for life. Your domain registrar will also block your domain permanently.

    I have a lot of experience. Here are just getting blocking and angry letters my sites that I tried to promote, now it’s time to earn on the skill of blocking sites))
    If before June 1, 2019 you do not send 0.3 BTC, I will start a massive aggressive spam of your site for tens of millions of other sites and email addresses and your site will be definitely blocked and will receive a lot of negative reviews.
    Transfer 0.3 BTC to my wallet and sleep peacefully without worrying about your site.

  19. Good morning here, just turned out to be familiar with your post through Search engine, and have found that it’s truly good. I will truly appreciate should you decide carry on this informative article.

  20. It’s actually mostly unattainable to see well-informed individuals on this issue, fortunately you look like you understand whatever you’re talking about! Thanks

  21. Hiya here, just became aware of your post through Search engine, and realized that it’s quite interesting. I’ll like should you carry on this approach.

  22. I assume that this – “manivannanpriya”, is your password?
       You do not know me and you are probably surprised why you received this letter?
       The fact is that I posted a special program on porn, which you recently visited to have fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching the video, your web browser worked as RDP (remote desktop), as well as a keylogger, which allowed me to access your screen and webcam. After that, my program also collected the data of all your friends from all installed instant messengers, Facebook account and mail.
       So what exactly did I do?
       I made a video with a split screen. In one half – the video that you watch (you have a good taste, haha), and on the other, what I recorded from the webcam (Aha, it’s you!).
       What should you do?
       I think $ 1,700 is a fair price for such a little secret. Make a payment via Bitcoin to the wallet address (if you don’t know how – google “How to buy Bitcoin”):
       BTC Address: 1LsMraNovQ8BfpEhf8BbreXUodeJ8wmopb
       (case sensitive, copy and paste)
    Important:
       You have 24 hours to make a payment (I have embedded a unique pixel in this message and right now I see that you are reading it). If I do not receive the payment, I will send the video to the entire list of your relatives, friends, colleagues, etc. If I get paid, I will immediately erase the video. In case you want evidence, write the word “Yes!” In the reply letter and I will send the video to 5 random contacts from your list. This is a non-negotiable proposal, so it is better not to waste my and your time on such checks.

    Бетон низкого качества — бич современного строительства в Москве и регионе. Низкопробный раствор приводит к плачевным результатам вплоть до обрушения готовых конструкций. А это не только колоссальная потеря средств застройщика, но и прямая угроза жизни людей.

    Вторая, не менее сложная ситуация, связанная с бетоном, — задержки его поставок на объект. Отсюда простои в работе, срывы плана и в конечном итоге опять же финансовые убытки.

    Компания «Бетонная Индустрия» готова избавить вас сразу от двух проблем. Как мы это делаем:

    1. Производим растворы любых марок от М 100 до М 500 на СВОЕМ предприятии. Строго контролируем соответствие продукта стандартам и отвечаем за качество многолетней репутацией.
    2. Доставляем бетон в любую точку Москвы и Одинцовского района с помощью СОБСТВЕННОЙ специализированной техники. Привозим заказ на объект точно в установленный срок.
    Налаженное производство и отсутствие посредников позволяют нам сохранять оптимальные цены на все виды продукции. Самые востребованные сейчас:

    • М300 от 3800 руб/м?
    • М350 от 3950/м?
    • М400 от 4100/м?
