In my last post, I mentioned I run several blogs and I'd like to tell you about of one of them right now. It's called MeAndMyDrum and it's my flagship blog where I write about my points of view on current events, software that I think you'll find productive, sites that are informative or entertaining, and a little humor here and there.
I've been blogging since 2005, but MeAndMyDrum didn't come onto the scene until February of last year and what a ride it has been since! It's where I interact most with my readers who come to share their experiences and to benefit from the information I provide them.
I owe partial credit to the growth of the community I've built up to a movement that I helped to create last Summer called the iReply Movement. It's a simple yet non-obligatory commitment to respond to the readers who leave a comment on your blog. It continues to receive words of praise and vows to join to this day, and I'm glad to have been a part of its creation along with my buddies Mike and Brown Baron.
Then there's the Be The Blog award I created the concept for along with designing the badge that has made its way to many a blog. It was my way of identifying blogs of distinction, the kind that shows there's someone running their blog as a place to enjoy visiting and interacting with other readers. I haven't seen too many awards make their way into the blogosphere in the past couple of months. I don't know, maybe they were a passing fad, but then again, maybe it just needs to be given a little boost, so maybe I'll have to think about designing another one.
As for what I write about, the topics are broad and you are sure to find something of interest. Some of my most memorable posts are:
- Twas My Blog Before Christmas
- Why Does Skin Color Matter?
- Good Night Sister-Mommy
- Wendy’s Doesn’t Know What I Deserve
- My Drum Corps series of posts
- And many others
