In the very small fragment of time that I’ve spent blogging I’ve read some fabulous blogs, learned a massive amount and stored away little nuggets of ideas for how I’d like my blog to be.

I always quite liked the idea of a blogaversary – marking my first year as a blogger in some way – and then I went and missed the day, and anyway the day itself was only kind of the day as I’d migrated to this blog from another blog, so it wouldn’t really have worked anyhow.  I’m still going to do something, maybe later this week, to mark it in some way and that works I suppose, especially as my first ever post was called Breaking the Rules.

I’m not blogging much of late, and it’s not that I’ve got nothing to write about.  In fact it might even be because I’ve got too much to write about and don’t really know how or where to start.  I miss it, despite everything else I’ve got going on, all the exciting and not so exciting things, I miss the process of sitting in front of a blank screen and watching it fill with whorls of little black characters.

For anyone who doesn’t do this, or doesn’t understand ‘why’, I urge you to try it.  Even if you never publish a single post, even if you keep everything password protected or simply use a private network. It’s such a fabulous way to purge yourself of all of those thoughts that otherwise build up into blockages and, in the worst case scenario, malignant tumours that skew normal thought.

Oh what a cheery post this is turning into. I think I’ll leave it there….

    Hello there, nice to see you. Many congratulations. Since I started blogging, my Mum has written her ‘memoirs’ for all future generations and two friends have just started private blogs. You’re spot on, it’s a healthy thing to do and thanks for the reminder that this is why we all started no for stats, comments, rankings and £. But, godamit, that would all be lovely than you very much…

    Happy blog birthday!

    I know what you mean – sometimes life is too full to take time to blog but actually sitting and tapping away I find does declutter some of the noise in my head

    Happy Blogversary my darling, so lovely to see you are still part of the blogging world. I’m creeping back into blogging and have noticed a real change in who is still blogging for a year ago, how those who’ve stayed have evolved etc. Blogging is still my favourite way to purge my brain and I quite agree with you that everyone should give it a try!

    Happy Blogaversary. I am approaching mine I think, but like you, it was just a transfer from a home made Front Page blog to Blogger! Just hopped over from another blog, and I am feeling the same, nothing to write about recently. Lost my mojo! -HMx

    It will be my 5 year blogaversary in June. My posting has been more sporadic over the past two years, but I do still enjoy the process of getting stuff down onto the page from my head. I have noticed that since my blogging went down, my general happiness IRL went down, so I should really blog more than I have been.

    At the moment, I am sending letters of complaint to many different companies who have annoyed me. It’s venting of a kind, but not as much fun as blogging.

    Keep up the awesome work P.
