Why Do I Blog?

Maia Jose tagged me to answer the question “Why do I blog?” I told her I’m going to answer it over the weekend, but since I can’t think of anything new to post today, I decided to answer it now.

The rule is that you should use a list format and name 5 reasons why you blog. You then tag 5 others to do the same.

Ok, why do I blog? There are many reasons and the reasons evolved from the first day I blog till now.

1. To kill boredom. More than 3 years ago, I started blogging in Kuwait just to kill boredom. I was alone in my flat, I had no one to talk to, I had internet connection but all of my contacts at Yahoo Messenger were offline due to time differences. So, instead of killing myself due to boredom, I killed boredom by making an online diary or by blogging as what we call it now.

2. To meet new online friends and convert them to offline friends. I am a shy type kind of person, that’s why my only friends before were schoolmates, boardmates, churchmates and officemates. Now, I have friends that I just met through blogging.

3. To keep a record of what’s going on on me and make reminiscing easier. I already made more than 1000 posts on my Blogspot blog and I still enjoy reading them every once in a while when I have nothing to do. To give researcher an easy task when they decided to create a movie entitled “The Life Story Of Marhgil Macuha.” LOL!

4. To help others in any way I can by blogging some helpful tips on troubleshooting something based on my experience. To let the world know that someone, somewhere, there is a blogger named Marhgil Macuha who helped them fixed their problem.

5. Lastly, to earn some money. For 2 years, I blogged without earning some money. But now that I found out that there is a pot of gold hidden in blogging, the more I get motivated. An extra $250+ a month is a great motivation. I think, I’ll be blogging as long as blog exists.

I now tag:

1. Jason
2. Yen
3. Jamie
4. Tin
5. Eroica

That’s all!
