5 random facts about my blog

20130417-090222.jpg

My friends Zee and Valerie each posted 5 random facts about their blogs a while back. I thought I would join in the fun :).

Here goes:

1. This is a small, no-frills blog. I appreciate every one of the 100+ views I get everyday. Here’s a big “Hello, and thank you” to those who have taken time to read and comment.

2. It’s my first blog – I did try to start one 5 years back, but never published any posts. I’m still learning to navigate WordPress (which explains the lack of fancy backgrounds or widgets :))

3. Most posts are read and written on the WP app while I’m on the move. So I when I read your posts I don’t see the pretty backgrounds, I just read your contents 🙂

4. The search term “Heguru” directs the most traffic to my blog.

5. Most of my friends and family do not know of the existence of this blog. I don’t hide it, but somehow, it feels strange to publicize it.

Do join me to share 5 random facts about your blog. It would be fun to know more about you!

      Ha… You have a nice blog going. Mine is a work in progress.
      Yes, there’s just something about blogging that is private (like an online diary of sorts)

    This is my first blog too;). Five facts about my blog: 1 I operate a home daycare and blog about it. 2- I am always busy so I don’t post as often. 3- I still don’t know how to navigate WordPress. 4- I use the blog as my main website. 5- I like my theme for the fun things we do at the daycare

      For some strange reason I thought I had followed your blog, but I didn’t! That’s fixed now. Yes, I can imagine your hands must be full with little kids rubbings around! Looking forward to more posts 🙂

      I’m glad to be able to share! Right brain education is somewhat a pet subject of mine. I’ve always been fascinated by the research and methods.

    First of all, that picture is to die for cute. And second, I sometimes wish I didn’t have so many people I know reading my blog. I started it to keep my family in the loop when I had Charlotte two years ago, and now there are times I’d like to write things but feel a little awkward knowing everyone in my entire extended family will read it! Oh well!

    Thanks for linking up and for sharing! Actually the first post I read on your blog was also one of your posts about G starting heguru (I think). I found that really interesting.

    You take questions? I have one. Any reason behind the blog profile pic? Hehe.

        I wanted to find one of a rabbit, pig, ox and dragon for our family. But couldn’t find a suitable one. So decided to use this as it’s cuter 😉

        Haha… I thought I had put it down as one of the 5 random facts. But in fact it was in an earlier draft! So I was curious why the question was asked. Silly me!

      Oh you are too kind! If it counts, I love your posts – the warmth, the humor, the crafts, the kids. I still remember reading your post about dinner with the queen! (I double checked… In case my memory failed me)

    #5 resonates with me. I like my friends and family to read my blog so they know what is going on in our lives, but I still share the stories with them and they say “yeah I read that on your blog!” Awkward!! And I agree with Katy@The Open Door- there are many more things I’d like to write about but knowing certain people read it, makes me reconsider 😉

    Heya! Thanks for sharing your random facts! I’m new to WP and feeling very inspired after reading your blog. 😉 You’ve mentioned writing via WP’s app. May I ask what mobile device are you using? I’m currently doing the same but I find typing on my phone very very tiring. Finger aches!

      Fellow WP newbies unite! Hehe…
      I’m using an iPhone. I do the text and photoupload using the app, layout and captions in Safari. I’m having more problems since they switched it to landscape mode so I hope they change it back soon.

        Thanks for sharing. I’m using iPhone too but with much difficulty. Perhaps, I need more practice 🙂

    Glad you decided to do this! #5 is true for me as well. It would be weird for me to have family or IRL friends commenting on my blog (I have no idea why!) haha

      Hehe, I finally got down to post this. Quite a few left in draft format – I’ve got to find time to complete them :p
      Yes, sometimes I do a double take when I see comments from people I know IRL whom I had no idea were reading. Lol! But it’s nice to know they popped by to say hi.
