Although it wasn't until January 2007 that I actually started blogging regularly, during the previous autumn a friend of mine (James) started to drag me into Blogdom. I created my first blog ("Don't talk to me about life") which I never posted to. As the name indicates, I was at a bad place in those days, but reading around different blogs made me see that there were some great people out there and I was hooked.
Over the years bloggers have come and gone - a few of the old gang that I hooked up with are still around, but many have either vanished entirely or have moved to Facebook, which is a shame. Blogging and Facebook are totally different things - you can't make new friends on Facebook as it does not allow for deeper discussions and connections. For example, on blogs I have discussed just about every topic imaginable:
- Religion and faith;
- The loss of loved ones;
- Children asking questions such as "So do you and mommy still do IT?";
- Pets pooping everywhere;
- Aging parents;
- Food - lots about food!;
- How cool it is to have Polish ancestry!
- and a load more that my old brain can't quite recall on a Monday morning!
And I am now it a much better place than I was 5 years ago - thanks in no small part to you guys out there who have helped me through tough times. I cannot thank you enough for your love and support, it really does mean a lot to me.
5 years - doesn't seem like that long, but then again I have trouble remembering NOT blogging! Isn't the mind a funny thing!
So, thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy my random little posts because there are a lot more on the way!
