I have had my own ecommerce website for over 3 years, but didn’t get into the “blog” scene until about a year ago. But I don’t get it. I always heard and read, that a blog was more like a personal journal. So that is how I started my blog. My own thoughts about my world, my surroundings and MY life. So I go about visiting these other blogs while logged into my Link Referral account, and 99% of blogs are as far from a personal journal as they can get! Most are the equivalent to what we call link farms on a website. All you see are ads ads and more ads! All of the blog writers have google ad sense [I think that is the right term for them, don’t know, have never used, and won’t] Even if the blog writer does tell stories about their life, they still make their stories so that they can interject ads for google on them!
Now I know everyone wants and needs to make some money, but this takes me to my question of WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE “BLOG”???
I had a LR reviewer ‘review’ this blog and he commented on it and said, “How does this blog have anything to do with your view from your mountain?” well, IF he had taken time to look at my blog then he would have seen the articles on My View From a Mountain Top meaning, my view of LIFE from up here.
I do have a question if you know about these wordpress blogs, I have a page called COPS THAT MURDER and MOTORCYCLES AND A BUZZ and a couple of others. But I don’t see them anywhere in my menu – or categories- to the right. WHERE ARE THEY AND HOW CAN THEY BE SEEN???
