June 21st is Summer Solstice – the Longest Day of the Year 2010, the Longest Day of Blogging

How are you doing folks? I’m pretty sure you’re a bit busy these days as the new season comes, depending on which continent you are in.
Well, I’m just missing talking a lot here related to blogging. As some of you continue to follow this blog (Thanks for that!), you probably noticed that most articles published on the past week or two were related to the internet, technology, or gadgets– and less about blogging and SEO. Don’t you worry, as I’m going to talk a lot here about blogging in the coming weeks, starting week 25 (also check out my weekly blogging recap).

Back to the title of this post- today, June 21st is what we call the Summer Solstice. That means that today is the day of the year with the longest period of daylight. According to the Wikipedia:

The Summer Solstice occurs exactly when the Earth’s axial tilt is most inclined towards the sun at its maximum of 23° 26′. Though the Summer Solstice is an instant in time, the term is also colloquially used like Midsummer to refer to the day on which it occurs. Except in the polar regions, the day on which the Summer Solstice occurs is the day of the year with the longest period of daylight. Thus the seasonal significance of the Summer Solstice is in the reversal of the gradual shortening of nights and lengthening of days. The summer solstice occurs in June in the Northern Hemisphere, in December in the Southern Hemisphere.

You might be surprised why I’m telling you about this on this blog; well, it’s just some sort of general information. I realized June 21st is the longest day of this year, which means to some as the longest day of work or having more time for blogging!
