Happy Anniversary


I am celebrating my first anniversary of blogging. I started my blog on the 28th of April 2011. It was a very scary start because I had no idea what to do.


I remember sitting down at the computer one night and somehow managed to do the set-up. It must have been pretty simple for me to follow but it still took about 3 hours.


I didn’t go near it again until July when I made my second post.


Why did I start blogging?



1.      Because people kept asking me if I had one

2.      I wanted to keep track of what I have been doing



I seem to be so busy all the time and yet when people ask me what I have been doing, I hardly know how to answer because I have forgotten. I am too busy getting onto the next thing.

My blog has helped me to slow down a bit and reflect on what I have been up to.


Last week I happened upon an on-line blogging course. It goes for 4 weeks and I thought I would sign up for it. I still know so little about all the gadgets and what is possible and after 12 months I think I am ready for the next step.


I found the course through Alyson B Stanfield’s Newsletter http://artbizblog.com 
and our teacher is Cynthia Morris http://originalimpulse.com/blog
 
So, who knows what the next 12 months will bring!! Sort of exciting isn’t it?
 
Bye for now,
Linda

Happy blog-anniversary! I don't know why you think you need any tuition - your block is perfect the way it is. (I don't really like the very 'busy' ones - they take ages to download, even with broadband connection).

Hi Linda, I too congratulate you on the one-year anniversary! And I agree that a blog offers an opportunity to reflect on your accomplishments as well as a record of them. See you in class!
