If you’re a regular reader you’ll know that I’ve been blogging at Semantically driven for just over five years now. If you’re new here, now you also know.
As part of my five year blogiversary I came up with the idea to collect people’s blog stories, I call it ‘my Blogging quest‘ and share them here. So far three people have joined in and I’d like to thank them for participating and share an outline of their stories here because they are all so diverse, but yet have some commonalities.
She from She became a butterfly started blogging before I did in 2000 and eventually moved from hosted to self-hosted as so many of us bloggers who want more options than hosted blogging systems do. She calls herself ‘She’ as she wants to stay anonymous because of some issues from a stalker in the past. She also likes the community found during blogging which is so far becoming a common theme. It’s hard to not write the word She here when it’s both a proper noun and a pronoun.
Margo from Writer Mom at Home has also joined in and is a relative newcomer to blogging starting in September last year but similar to ‘She’ above, started with a hosted blog and has now moved to self-hosted and can’t imagine giving up blogging any time soon. Margo’s gone from writing a journal type of blog to realising that blogging offers a whole lot more than that. I can agree with that.
Trish from My Little Drummer Boys has been blogging for nearly four years and started blogging to write about infertility and IVF and continues to do so to keep a record of her and her family’s life and she also learns a lot by reading others’ blogs. I love this quote fromn Trish, ‘Blogging isn’t just about daily dribble’. Trish also likes the community that blogging offers.
I’m an impatient lass and I want more stories please. I’d love it if you spread the word. I just need two more people then I’ll choose one to win a little prize – but a very practical one.
