Over the past *cough* years that I've been using the internet, I've kept a few online diaries and had a few little websites here and there. All eventually fell by the wayside when other things stole my time away (or I just became bored with them). I keep thinking about keeping a diary again; something I've done on-and-off since I was about 10, but haven't decided on the format yet.
An online friend of mine also has had various websites over the years, most of which have been closed down due to time restrictions and having other commitments. However, more recently she has decided to keep a blog. Hers is part diary, part cookbook, part photoblog, and partly to keep track of her interests. No specific topic I guess is what I am saying.
Inspired by her dedication, I decided to start a blog too...
...And ended up with three
A Pet Shop Boy
At work, there are so many amusing/stupid moments with customers that we always have said we should write them down. So I decided to keep a little record of any that happen, or any that I remember from the past 8 or 9 years I've been working in a pet shop.
I'm no great music critique, but I enjoy my relationship with music. More specifically, my relationship with individual songs. So this is just a self-indulgent exploration at the songs I enjoy, or memories to do with music.
Animals From Slightly Below
And this kinda came from nowhere. I took a photograph of a Guinea Pig a little while ago (this one) and, for some reason, it amused me because of the angle. On a whim, I decided to then keep taking photographs of 'animals from slightly below'. So far I've managed to keep it updated every day since May 19th. Today is the first day I don't have anything scheduled, so I should really go take a photo quick It is silly, somewhat random, and some of the search engine keywords that have arrived at the blog are worrying. But still. It's fun to have something creative to do.
I would be interested to know if any other forumites keep a blog? I manually check The Matazone Blog every now and again (because, for some reason, I always forget to just use RSS features), but would like to read other people's creative moments too.
Incidentally, my friend's blog is called Reverberations and is definitely worth a read. Her 'about me' reads: "I'm a web developer who likes to pretend I'm a baker/photographer/blogger/world traveler. I aspire to improve my German skills. Best buddies with a white mini schnauzer." Her schnauzer is very cute
