Just Curious...

There are a few questions about blogging that I have been pondering for some time. I have my own answers for each of these questions, of course,but I'm very curious to know the answers and opinions of other bloggers. I would love to have some feedback, so I'm leaving this post up for awhile. Feel free to leave your answers in comments, or you can email me.

1) Why did you start blogging? What was your motivation?

2) If no one ever read your blog, would you still continue to blog?

3) Are there specific areas of your life that you don't blog about, or do you feel like nothing is too personal to blog about?

4) Do you sometimes add a blog to your blogroll simply because that particular blogger added you to theirs?

5) Would you consider it offensive or rude if you repeatedly commented on someone's blog, and they never commented on yours? If so/not, why/why not?

6) Do you ever feel pressured to post just to give your readers something to see?

7) Would you ever consider meeting a fellow blogger in person? Why or why not?

8) Have you ever considered deleting your blog, only to keep it going so as not to disappoint your readers?

9) Is there any situation that would ever cause you to stop blogging?

10) Have you made any close friends in the blogging world, a person you feel as if you have really connected with?

Well, that's it for now. Once again, any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Field Trip

Yesterday, Chloe's class took a field trip to Boyd's Orchard:

I went along as a chaperone, and we had a really good time.
We got to take a hayride:

We had a really great time, and the weather was absolutely gorgeous!
