My Blogging History

Although I'm a newbie in the Blogosphere (and my site is a dusty, cob-webby little corner of the web that nobody wants to visit), I've been keeping up with a few good sites for a while now. The first one that caught my eye was chromasia, which was on a 'cool websites' list somewhere. Although chromasia is a photoblog, and I have little knowledge (ok, no knowlege) of photography, I liked the fact that there was something new to look at every day, and the comments/discussions were always interesting.

I then came across dooce (and consequently blurb) via an article on the BBC website about 'the girl who got fired because of her website', and I've been a devotee of both ever since (although I no longer read dooce at my desk as my workmates think I'm weird for occasionally snorting tea up my nose in laughter). I love Heather's sharp tongue, wit, and the fact that she will talk about anything, including her digestive system, and the problems thereof. I have a particular affinity there, as my own digestive system is a source of...shall we say, discomfort... for me.

It was reading dooce that made me want to have my own blog, once I saw what a great outlet it was for recording thoughts, stories, pictures, and anything that takes your fancy really. I've always harboured furtive aspirations to be a writer, but was daunted by the thought of sitting down and writing a novel. My little blog is perhaps not causing much excitement in the blogosphere (as you can see I've had ONE comment, and that was from my fiance...) but I love it - it's got me writing something every day, and thinking all the time about what my next post is gonna be. God bless the internet.
