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.
