Why Semantically driven

When I decided to properly start a blog (I wonder if my original one on Blogger or whatever it was is still kicking around) it took me ages to decide on a name. Because I love reading and love writing, I wanted a name to encompass words or semantics. And because I feel driven to write, I included driven in my title. I also wrote about this when it was this blog’s second anniversary. In this post I contemplated changing the title, but I’m not changing it now because I’ve registered the semanticallydriven.com domain.

What you will find here

This isn’t what you would call a niche blog, ie I fall into a few categories. One is the mummyblogger category because I do blog about my son but this is not the sole focus here. Now that he’s getting older I find myself focusing more on showing off my photos and relating the stories that go along with them. Overall, it’s a personal blog so pour yourself a drink, sit down and look through the archives. If you have any questions, please contact me.

Some flattery my way – my blogging cred if you will

In August 2007 I finally got my own domain name – semanticallydriven.com. Not long after this debut I changed hosts from Typepad to WordPress.

Top 50 Australian woman bloggerI’ve made it onto a couple of top list, including this one:  Top 100 Australian women bloggers. Blogging has really taken off here and I don’t make it onto these lists any more. It was nice while it lasted.

Semantically driven is a 9rules member

In January 2009 I became a 9rules member. 9rules, finds the best content from the independent web and pulls it all together in one location. I was really chuffed to be chosen for this. I need to revise this as it’s not really a thing any more.

Really it’s all about me

I was born and raised in the country and once I finished high school I got out as I felt there was more for me than staying in the country and working in some sort of clerical job.

My immediate family consists of me, a 12-year-old boy (referred to as Jaycee Junior and JJ and our rescue dog, Phoenix who in no way will replace Monty.

I’ve been a sole parent pretty much since JJ was conceived. Read more about about meeting JJ’s father (on Ourstory.com), when I found out I was pregnant, and what it felt like to be pregant while single.

I studied part-time as a mature age student to get a Bachelor degree in Professional Writing and Communication as I have a keen interest in the written word and I thought writing this blog would at least get me doing some writing.

Other websites

In addition to this website I maintain the Safari suit website (a special interest blog about, you guessed it, safari suits). You’ll have to go and check it out for yourself.

And on a more professional level I created Content is.
