This blog, or blogging in general?
This blog in particular because I’d already created Gay Pride Blanket but liked the idea behind Post A Day and decided it would be best to keep daily ramblings separate from GPB. I used to write a lot. And then I got old(er), my life got busier and my time vanished. This blog is all about getting me back into playing with the written word. Knowing I’ll have a prompt for every day is what’s keeping me going so far!
For blogging in general, I can’t honestly remember when I first started. I began to play with HTML and CSS in 2003 but websites I created back in those days were just for my graphic work – I never blogged through them. I remember owning a LiveJournal between 2004 and 2005 and hating it, and then I played with CuteNews and eventually self-hosted versions of WordPress.
I have never been a good blogger though. Primarily because when things get tough, I go silent. I’ve never had a full-on purpose for blogging and I think that’s why I always failed. However, I have a specific reason for wanting to do GPB and let’s face it, daily pistachio is just a bit of fun and networking! 😉
Maybe some of you have better answers?
