What is your reason/motivation for blogging?

My motivation for blogging is to educate myself and others. When I come across a topic that piques my interest I delve further and turn it into a blog post. If it’s something that interests me amongst the hundreds of feeds I read daily, then it’s likely to interest others too. I blog to share ideas and hopefully put a different perspective out there in the blogosphere.

joolliee delaforce02What is it that you find yourself blogging about, mostly the same stuff or does it vary?

On Fresh Chat, which is Network Communications’ blog, I mostly contribute posts on social networks and communities, but also anything of interest in the wide world of web 2.0

What style of blogging do you do, short and regular, or not so regular but long, other? And is your blogging just text or do you also use audio or video?

I don’t limit myself to a particular style, if I need to write more to do a topic justice then I will, but I tend to think that most people have a shorter attention span online, so it’s best to keep posts shorter. I write sporadically, I don’t like to stick to a blogging schedule as then it feels as though you have to write something and then it may not be as interesting a read. I do plan on blogging more regularly this year.

42-15530438 How Julie became a Geek Girl Blogger:

I’ve had a personal Live Journal for several years, so at first blogging was cathartic for me. A way to share the ups and downs in my life and to participate with a community of friends. I’m not just a geek girl blogger, I’m a geek girl in general and am registered on so many social networks, online communities and other social media applications that I can barely keep track of them. When I started at Network Communications in 2008 I was also given the opportunity to blog for Fresh Chat. I have found that I really enjoy blogging, and the idea that anyone can blog. I also like the challenge of creating interesting content that people want to see.
