My Blog Habit

Every morning, as soon as I post my entry between 9:00 and 9:30AM, I immediately click on my site meter to check out how many people have visited my blog the past couple of hours.

I know, I know… but sorry, I can’t help myself.

As a blogger, I’d be a hypocrite if I said that it isn’t nice to see your visitor count increase.

It’s especially nice to see people leave their insightful comment on some of your entries.

Though I know them merely from their codenames (e.g., Abe, EventuallyPretty, Manila Office Worker, Paoyu, FeelingPretty and more), it’s still very interesting to read what they think about entries that had caught their eye.

I may not know them intimately, but at least, they had shown me a glimpse of their mind.

Definitely creates an instant connection.


Posting entries on an almost daily basis is actually quite tiring.

Some days, I’m so full of ideas and I just can’t wait till I type them on Word.

Other days, I have no idea what I’m going to write about.

Do you fellow bloggers share the same dilemma?

That’s why, more often than not, if my mind is overflowing with ideas, I type them all down, and just save them for days when I’m too busy to write, or when I have no ideas at all.

And then, I’d just post them a few days afterwards.

That’s the thing… when you have an idea, you’d just have to write it down. Otherwise, you’d forget and it’s gone forever.

How do I write?

Oh, I just start with a blank Word document, and write whatever comes to mind.

It’s quite liberating…

How about you guys? What are your style?


My IT genius friend shared with me on how one can get more visitors. He shared that the search engine, Google often look for certain keywords. And if these keywords are found on the main page of your site, your site will show up on the first few pages.

So, let’s have a small quiz.

Try to guess which keywords are the most popular?

Okay, the most popular is…

*drumroll please*

No, it’s not SEX!

*roll eyes*

Geez, you have a dirty mind!!!

*slap, slap*

It’s actually “google.”

Hands up to those who were able to guess right.

Okay, how about the second most popular keyword?

*drumroll again*

All right, all right.

You got it right this time… it’s “Sex!!!”

Haha, sex does really sell, huh?

And after sex, search engines such as AOL, Lycos, Yahoo, among others are just some of the most popular search keywords from the Net.

Haha, if you’d notice, I’ve listed all the keyboards down.

Just an experiment, let me see how many visitors will I get for today. 🙂


About Tina

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!

    oh so thats why i have only a small no. of people dropping by my blog. i should write about sex more often *lol*

    my style, hmm my blog mostly documents what’s happening in my life, what i feel at the moment. sometimes i just ramble on stuff at the top of my head. sometimes ideas come to me before i sleep or when i wake up. then when i get to the office i sit down and write. but most of the time as you may have noticed i just rant. a lot. *lol*

    some like the drama in my life. keeps em entertained. some maybe fed up with hearing me rant over the same things over and over. well to each his own 🙂

    Haha, EventuallyPretty, we’re very similar too. I also write what’s been happening day-to-day, but for some reason, it comes out in a “general” format, not really a blow-by-blow account on what happened. People get bored easily I think. They’d rather know the lesson. Anyway, I’ve visited ur blog, and it’s great! 🙂
