What's happened to you since you started blogging?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My blogging story is a bit spooky, I wonder if anyone else has a similar experience.

I started writing my blog in May 2006. I wrote the first entry and emailed it off to my mum and dad to see what they thought before I posted it. We have a close family plus my dad was a writer so I always trusted their opinions.

I didn't hear back for over 24 hours and that kind of worried me, as they were both, especially my dad, prompt with replying to email. I'm English but I live in Italy so far away from them.

I mentioned to my partner that I was worried and he said they were probably busy. I then received a phonecall to say my dad had really serious septicemia and had been admitted into hospital. I also found out that day that I was pregnant with my first child.

Six weeks later my dad died. Then my mum had a breakdown and then I had the baby. The blog has followed me through all of this and now we have a walking, talking toddler, with a mop of red hair just like my dad. How life can change completely on one particular day, and that happened to be the day I started blogging!

I am interested to hear other's blogging stories.

I'm sorry for what you went through. I have nothing to say to that other than life is funny ( not always funny ha-ha) and I'm glad you had a little redhead like your Daddy.

I have no experience like that since starting my blog. I will say that I have beecome obsessed, and I love every second of it. I spend time thinking of quality posts that will give something to my readers, and time crafting the writing, then time checking my statcounter.

I'm designing it now, because I am jut using a regular template, and have a new banner coming soon.

I'll be sure to visit your blog regularly.

Nice thread you started. I'd like to hear from more folks. Enjoy your baby and I hope your mom is okay.
