Wow, I got tagged. (Turns out Serph comes in handy after all; I got bored and went to check my reputation today and totally would have missed this otherwise, which is weird since I read SoloSEO.)

So, five reasons why I blog:

  • It’s my job. (Thank you, Andy!)
  • I am completely obsessed with it. Just ask my family, here visiting for one week from nearly 2000 miles away, first time I’ve seen them all year, what I did most of the day yesterday.
  • I like not having to worry about impartiality. Hurray grey area; I’m a subjective kind of girl.
  • Obligatory Unusual Reason: I’m a total grammar/spelling/punctuation Nazi. It absolutely drives me crazy to see “it’s” when it should be “its.” If I blog, I get to make sure that that doesn’t happen (as often).
  • I didn’t think I needed the praise of complete strangers, but y’know what? It’s really nice. (And they’re not strangers anymore!)

Now I shall tag:
Liana Evans
Jennifer Laycock
Jennifer Slegg (aka HRH Queen of Search)
Chris Winfield
Blake Snow

Go at it!

  • Don’t forget to check out the blog meme tracker where you’ll notice you double tagged someone. 🙂

    I’m a fellow spelling nazi too.

  • Jordan McCollum

    I actually used it to make sure that I did double tag people, but only those who hadn’t yet responded. I’m just not feeling creative enough today.

    And I figured out why I hadn’t seen the post yet: it took a while to wend its way to Google Reader. I got it soon after I hit publish.

  • Jordan “its” a pleasure to have you with us. 🙂

  • Jordan:

    Sorry for the tag. However, I do love your work, Marketing Pilgrim is lucky to have you. I never miss a post, and appreciate the time and effort you obviously put in to your writing. I am never dissappointed.

  • Andy, you’re so cruel. 🙂

    Aaron, you look like my twin (Andy, what’s up with the mybloglog photo comment plugin?).

  • Michael – I think it’s on their end.

  • Jordan McCollum

    Aaron–You don’t have to apologize (unless you regret tagging me 😉 ). I’m quite flattered by the tag and your kind words. Thank you!
