My Blogging History
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.
