I’ve been blogging for 14 years!

Yesterday I was doing a bit of tidy up for my blog, and found links to blog posts I’d written in 2004.

2004.

Holy smokes batman! I can’t believe I’ve been writing that long! It made me think of all the times I’ve spent pouring over a computer, or tablet, or phone. So I thought I’d revisit a bit of history, and how my blog has evolved since the beginning.

The origins

My sister set me up with a blog way back in the beginning. It was hosted as a page on her own blog, and lacked its own identity. [...]  read more

Staying updated with Kelly’s World

In preparation for maternity leave I’ve started to put more effort into my blog. I want to try and capture as much of these memories as I can, along with the emotional ride that’s going to come with it. I figure it will be my creative output when most of my life will shortly become a combination of feeding, changing nappies and lack of sleep.

When I started this blog (thank you sister), it was an outlet for me. It was somewhere to work through my thoughts. At the time I didn’t care about who was reading it, it was just somewhere for me personally. [...]  read more

Thank you for the survey results

I’m going to stop with the sarcasm here for a minute, and just say a truly heartfelt thank you.

I was blown away by the results of the survey. To be honest, I didn’t actually expect a single response, and was so thrilled when they came pouring in! I genuinely didn’t know why people came to read what I had to say. So many of you took the time to go into detail, which was fantastic. There were so many lovely compliments at the same time (way to make me blush). It was overwhelming in a positive way, so thank you so much for making this motor mouth speechless. Well, for a second anyway. [...]  read more

I need you…now…to tell me stuff please!

See here’s the thing right. On my blog I do a bit of a brain dump of whatever comes to me on the day. It could be anything, like a story about accidentally falling on a razor and cutting my butt open (seriously happened when I was 15, but I never wrote about it) or just about my latest tech toy that I’m obsessed with. It’s great for me to get the stories out of my head (not great if I had a historical trail of butt cuts), but I actually have no idea what you guys enjoy reading. A large part of this blog is the enjoyment I get from seeing you guys enjoy it. [...]  read more

First post on my new blog

20130105-105613.jpg

So here it is, my first post on a new blog. There’s a bit of pressure!

I’ve put in a bit more of an effort on this blog already compared to what I ever did with my old one. My “About Me” page actually has a photo of me, and isn’t just filled with bad jokes. I made my own custom header, which actually was taken from a site offering free ones, then downloaded a font and added my blog address – woo look at me all technical like!

This is going to be my home for many years to come, so it’s about time I actually started personalising the thing.  [...]  read more
