At this stage, the most telling piece of information I can give you about this blog is that I registered the name in September last year and have only got round to doing something with it now.
I think it’s the faffing about with themes and widgets n that which puts me off. if you could just rock up to the internet with a pen and bung something up there I’d feel much better about the whole thing. (Actually you can, it’s called twitter and you’ll find me @feeraa)
Anyway, I did give blogging a go once before, many years ago. I’ve just been to find that aborted attempt and it’s still here. If you clicked on that link you’ll have seen that the subject matter was very specific and it’s no real surprise that I couldn’t keep it up.
Which brings me to the reasons why I’m having another crack at it; and please bear in mind I’m writing this post as much for myself as anything else, a Terms of Reference if you like, to try and keep myself on message.
As I’ve said, I’m not really down with the technology it takes to do this sort of thing and what better way to learn than to get stuck in.
And of course there is nothing worse than looking at people and thinking “I could do better than that,” but never testing out that assertion.
I don’t intend to take this seriously, there won’t be intellectual discussion of telly because that’s not how I watch it, although do expect to see plenty of BBC4 mixed in with X-Factor. And I’ll be posting plenty of pictures of my nails, but I don’t see myself swatching – there are plenty of people already doing a great job of that and it won’t take anyone long to realise I’m terrible at nail art. Really, I’m just going to try and have some fun!
Now I think about it, there will probably also be pictures every time I have a nice dinner.
I think that’ll do as an introduction, let’s get on with it…
