Once again another blogger Rotten Correspondent has been my inspiration for today's post. RC is celebrating her bloggaversary this week by looking back at why she started blogging etc. As I have said before I started just because I found a couple to read because they were living in France and, as you must all be aware by now, that's what I want to do and the sooner the better.
It started with a few anonymous comments here and there and then I became braver and launched my blog. I say brave.... it is still anonymous of course. I hide behind my nom de plume (!) because strangely I feel braver that way. A couple of times I have almost let the cat out of the bag to friends and family but stopped myself just in time.
Usually I nearly let slip because I just want to share all the fabulous blogs I have found, the great sense of humour, the wonderful, compelling writing....but then they might find me....and basically I am just not ready for that yet.
It is a bit of a strange feeling to have this big secret, because unlike a diary or journal, I am actually putting all this stuff, quite boring stuff sometimes (maybe always) out there for anyone else to read should they happen upon my blog but not telling those nearest and dearest to me. I wonder how long I will be able to keep it up, as I have never been particularly good at secrets.
If you knew how long it took me to get the black shadow to pose........ yes I know I need a life, hobby....what?
