Internet challenge: All about being a blog owner

by Crisego

Why blogging?

Well, I’m a sensitive person, a person that likes to be in touch with people, to talk about social issues, about love, about life in general. When I created my blog, my purpose was to be closer to the people surrounding me, inspire them somehow and, to be honest, to share my passion for poetry and writing in general.

How many blogs have you had? How many right now?

Right now, I only have one blog. I’ve had one more, on blogger, but I’ve closed it last autumn.

What was your first blog about? What is your current one?

Well, as I said before, I’ve only had one blog before having this one. It was about poetry (only poetry) and it was a little bit more….nooby:) Right now, this is my one and only blog. I’ve created it for poetry in the first place, but I’ve discovered new passions and right now, besides poetry, I write short prose, I have some articles in english, besides those in romanian, I have music that I like, videos that I like and photography (mainly, photos I make with my phone).

How old were you when you had your first blog? How old are you now?

When I started my blogging experience, I was about 19-20 years old. Now, I am 21 🙂 I’m kind of a new guy 🙂

Did your first blog reach its predetermined peak-point? Did you know what to expect?

Well, I knew what to expect, but, not having experience, I haven’t had the patience to work hard on it, to make it grow and so on. Meanwhile, I discovered the wordpress platform and I’ve realised that this was more for my taste.  So no, my first blog didn’t reach its predetermined peak-point.

What bad thoughts did you have when you created your first blog? Did you know what to expect?

Of course I was thinking about the popularity of the blog, about people’s reactions and about it’s growth. But you know, I was at the beginning:) As I said, I knew what to expect. I knew that there are different kinds of people, different kinds of ways of thinking and so on. Though, the most important thing was and is for me to be happy.

At first, did you know you can make money out of blogging?

Yes, I knew, but I didn’t have so much information about it. I started posting commercials on my first blog at one moment, but I got rid of the blog and I didn’t think about money so much anymore. Right now, I just wanna write 🙂

How much income have your blogs generated? How much time after establishing your first blog?

I didn’t make money out of my blogs. Probably, only a few bucks, on my first blog, but now it’s all about passion. That’s all.

Have you had any thoughts about abandoning your blog? Why would you do that?

I’ve never had any thoughts about abandoning my blog and I wouldn’t do that. Blogging is a hobby.

Would you ever give up blogging? If so, why?

I guess I’ve answered to this question already:)

So… I’ve received this challenge from Radu Ștefan RS and I’m passing it to Adela, Alexandra, Emil, Marlena, RadioCatch22, Diana, Cristina and everybody else who wants to take it.
It all started from here!

PS: My girlfriend has just reminded me that I also have a common blog, with her 🙂 I have forgotten about it. It is called “Ochiul căprui al dragostei“. Sorry, my dear, my bad! It won’t happen anymore! Ever! I promise!
