    Does anyone here own a site that they post on for fun mostly? I want to make my own site, just a random run of the mill site where I just discuss what I like, dislike and so on. Nothing major, and nothing intended for a bunch of people to see. More for my own pleasure. Does anyone do this?

    I used to have but I've stopped posting new things when I felt that it's not fun any more :) It's time consuming that's for sure. First you need to come up with articles but then you must work on the SEO (what;s the point of writing if no one reads that) etc. I was writing about sports.

    I used to run a Flight of the Conchords fan blog before, mostly for fun. But I did try to make money off of it when it was somewhat popular. I mostly did it for fun though because I was and still am a huge fan of them.

    I had a few blogs before.
    The one i really enjoyed having was some cookery stuff - recipes with pictures and such, but then i didn't found the time for it anymore. As someone mentioned here, it's time consuming.

    Ha. That's one of the few shows I keep downloaded to my computer even after watching it. That, Community, and 30 Rock will never be deleted from my hard drive.

    Nope. But I help people that run sites. I usually take care of some basic SEO stuff. I am planning to open my blog/site in the future.

    I have a few blogs I am enjoying. I am hoping to push traffic to them and eventually earn a living through blogging. I love writing but couldn't afford college so that is my best option. I wrote a book and it didn't do well enough haha.

    I have done this once before myself in the form of a blog a while back. It was my own personal blog where I used to write whenever I felt like it about whatever was on my mind at the time and would probably share it with friends and family if I wished to but never really allowed it to go public.

    Yes, also through passion and interest.

    That will be a big wasted of money so absolutely not.
    I just run site for my selling business :) It must bring back profits (at least it's price of maintenance)
