Geek Girl Blogger - Maria G

MariaG.meandalexEdit What is your reason/motivation for blogging?

Depends on my mood really. Sometimes I blog to vent or to express my opinion about something. I lived in Russia for the first thirty years of my life, and that, I believe, offers me a fresh perspective on many things I see around me living in the US today. Other times it is to share information with my readers. Some days I use the blog as a creative outlet for my writing, and there are times when I use it as a social network. I started out as more of a mommyblogger, but that changed as my two sons became teenagers and I suddenly found it not kosher for myself to discuss their lives in public. I still share my opinions on parenting, though. I have a rather unorthodox approach to parenting and am passionate about this subject. I still do have my sons in mind as I write, but in a different sense than before. I try to write something that they can later come back to and read. By "later", I mean that distant future when their mother is not the uncool old lady anymore!

Geek Girl Blogger - Cathy McCaughan

Hey there readers of GGB. I am sorry there hasn’t been any new surveys since the 5th of this month, and it is now the 25th. Ah, that’s 20 days! But there were other things like the dinner. Anyway, I enjoyed doing the job of creating the GGB article again, and Cathy McCaughan’s survey in particular was very enjoyable! Make sure you read her response to what her motivation for blogging is. Her blog is also really enjoyable to read. Don’t lose interest in this survey because of her occupation as a mom (mum) when you may have expected some fancy tech title. She is indeed a tech girl and her occupation as a mom is one of the most important jobs out there, so much respect for that.    Toodles!
