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
I’ve made it onto a couple of top list, the latest is this one: Top 100 Australian women bloggers.
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.
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 ten-year-old boy (referred to as Jaycee Junior and JJ
) and my 14-year-old border collie cross dog.
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.
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.
I’m also interested in writing a biography as I did a subject at uni to this effect and got a really good mark and loved doing it. I suppose this blog enables me to continually write my autobiography and get the practise in. I also feel the need to write, and blogging has become addictive.
I therefore plan to continue writing on this website and develop my writing skills. As a lecturer at uni said and I’ve heard other writer’s say, ‘Just write’.
If you’re still reading..
I have written fairly anonymously about myself on this blog to protect the innocent. Actually it’s been to protect myself, from what I don’t know. If you really want to find out a bit more about the person behind this blog come visit and befriend me in these places.
