Until that time the phenomenon known as blogging had passed me by. Then my mate Dave started a blog and I "had a look". Dave subsequently deleted the blog ("you mean I could have just deleted the post?") started another one and then deleted it.
I of course have trudged on regardless. I am still unsure as to why I started. I didn't think anyone would be interested. It therefore came as a bit of shock when I discovered that people who knew nothing about me were reading it. I think Cherrypie was the first to comment and she was followed by Nathalie, Kate, Diddums and Kaz in some sort of order.
I would have put good money on this blog not making its first birthday, but, spurred on by the fact that people were regularly dropping by I've perservered.
I've even met someone, Cherrypie, whose existence I was totally unaware of pre-blog.
I regularly read blogs from Sweden (Nathalie), US (Lee, Little Red Omnibus, Leazwell), Canada (OC, Ocean Walks, Leehane) and even, oh the shame, Yorkshire.
And of course I mustn't forget the chatsters (Nic, Boofy, Jan et al).
The first post was entitled "Well why am I doing this?"
I haven't got a clue.
Its lunch time and I'm bored.
Don't expect pretty pictures or any such. I intend to ramble on about birds and books and whatever else I feel like.
I've pretty much rambled on as predicted. I have bought a camera though (and doesn't Diane know it) and I admit it was totally to put stuff on the blog.
Ambitions for the next 12 months? Pretty much more of the same really. I'd like to meet some more of you. Plans already made to meet Boofy. I really want to meet Jan (well really that cute dog Emma!! but don't tell Jan that ;) ).
Fingers crossed for Mum obviously. I hope to read that Ally has become a mum. After all the trials and tribultations of trying to adopt it will be great to read that she is a Mum.
I do read everyone whose blog is on the list and if anyone wants to point me at some others.....
