It’s that first post, writing it, proof reading it and publishing it that starts it all off. The first post on the first blog that is the beginning of the end as you only then realise just how much time you spend blogging!
Often you’re not sure what you want the blog to be about. Is it meant to be a strictly personal blog, a news blog or do you crave hits and watch the stats like nothing?
Well, this is my blog, aptly called ‘Cat’s Blog’ and everything on here is either something I do or something that relates to what I do. It is not my first blog, but it is the first blog I actually feel that it’s part of me and that I mainly enjoy keeping up. A lot has changed since that very first post September the 4th 2006 which is now just over a year ago. In that time I’ve had just over 100.000 readers, found many people with similar interests [or even completely different ones!] and just realised on how much I enjoy blogging.
Since then I’ve changed my blog from blogging exclusively about my personal life to blogging about various interests, such as gaming, films, books, various sites and wordpress.com stuff and gained more and more regular readers. Thank you. :)
Well, after I lost the password from my last blog and didn’t really have anything interesting to talk about, many of you haven’t heard from me in a while. I’m also blaming this on not having the internet for 6 weeks (just how did I survive?) and my life just generally being crap.
So what have I been up to? In case some of you are wondering, I’m still living in Reading, UK, still living with the lovely Andrew and Ian (I love you guys) and we have a new addition Adam. I’m also still working at the same place, although the way work is going there, god knows. It sucks and it really stresses me out. I’ve been tempted to just walk out for months now.
In other news, I have now got a cat. Her name is Phoebe, she is 14 months old and absolutely gorgeous. As I’m writing this, she’s happily sleeping on my lap. :)
So yeah, more from me soon, I’ll try and update this more regularly.
