Waiting With Ba(i)ted Breath
This week's interview is with Tom,
who writes the blog The Fishing Guy.
The first of the standard questions. Why do you blog?
1. I blog to share with others what is happening in my life. 2. I blog to share my love of four things: family, fishing, photography and country music. 3. I blog to meet friends who have common interest. You do find people who enjoy your interest and who will share their likes with you. 4. I blog to see what others in the world are doing. I have visited people throughout the USA, Canada, England, Norway, Portugal, Fiji, Singapore, Brazil, Greece, Philippines, Australia and Tasmania. I feel I have made many friends through my travels through the Internet. 5. I am able to share with new bloggers my experiences on the Internet. 6. Now the best reason is: I do it because I have fun blogging and feel a reward when someone enjoys what I've done.
What's the story behind your blog name?
My friend Jedijawa's blog was called 'This Is Not My Blog' and I did a play on words for 'This Is My Blog'.
What is the best thing about being a blogger?

What key advice would you give to a newbie blogger?
I feel comments are the life blood of the blog world. It lets people know that you thought enough of what they have done to take the time to tell them so.
What is the most significant blog post you've ever read?
I have a friend Mike 'Hawk Huston' who writes beautiful stories of his life as a hunter at High Country Archer and they are really moving.
What is the most significant blog post you've ever written?
I did a post on Prostate Cancer, which I have lived through. Someone brought it to mind this week with a question. It was my most significant post of my blogging life. I also wrote a post called Remembering Grandpa. No one commented but it was significant to me.
