Past, Present & Future

Clearly, I'm new to Blogger. This being my first post and all.

But... this isn't my first blog. Back almost 10 years ago, I started my first "online journal" on a site called Livejournal. I didn't have a clue what I was doing (much like now), but it was my little piece of the internet world to express my views, meet like-minded friends, and share my creative endeavours. Back then, you didn't tell your "real life" friends you were a blogger - people thought of you as a reclusive computer geek who spent hours gaming and only had friends in the online world. Despite the reputation, I was hooked. I met great people and learnt about what it was to blog.

After all these years, blogging has become more socially acceptable. Whether be journalists expressing views on current events, or your every-day people sharing their DIY projects or baking, blogging is the new "norm". You don't have to be a computer geek or even know what HTML is. You just type, throw in a few photos, and hit "Publish"! And then... hope someone reads it?

My most recent online guilty pleasure is Pinterest (follow me?). Despite being somewhat time-poor these days, Pinterest has inspired me to indulge my creative side a little. DIY pins inspire me to try a similar project, and the amazing recipes have given me the baking bug once again! My blog here has been created as my outlet to share what I come up with - the successes and failures. I hope you enjoy the journey.


  1. Hey there :) I'm looking forward to seeing what you write here.

    1. Thanks Susan!

      I've worked out that Blogger seems to work better in the Chrome browser, so posting has become a lot easier now!

      I've already got my first "real" post up - a cake I baked today. Hope you enjoy! :)
