It’s just over six months since I started this, and nearly a hundred posts later.
If I’m honest, I was never sure what, or how, it would turn out.
I used to do a blog about 4 years ago on msn; lots of random stuff, me being me and saying things I felt at the time. A good way to get things off my chest, and out of my system. It’s a wonder it wasn’t shut down. My last entry was in Feb 2007; for eighteen months I had a riot, but I think I eventually burnt out, and lost interest in it all.
During Jan 2006 I started another, which ran till Sept 2008; more of a way to display the rapidly growing wildlife pictures I was accumulating on my hard drive.
Quotes, quizzes, facts and fotos, I was the anonymous creature from the swamp, squelching my way through the internet and splashing about having a great time.
Throughout it all, I was trying to deal with some very personal issues that were complicating my life during 2007. My great time wasn’t shared apparently, (it never is), and the muddy waters of the swamp eventually settled, and the ‘complication’ left. The swamp was finally put under lock and key.
My website was thrust upon the world just before Christmas 2007, and I could finally indulge my passion of the natural world around me in pictures. My words still needed somewhere to go though; I missed writing.
Enter my faltering steps into blogland again, here.
So, the point of this post?
Aaaa, good question. I’m not sure there is a point, or why I’m writing this.
Well, yes there is. There’s always a point, or there should be.
I’ve watched this grow over the months, and people with similar interests to myself, join, and follow my journey. So many wonderful people from around the world sharing a common interest.
A big thank you to everyone that stops by; and all the comments. I really do appreciate it. I’ve learnt so much, and seen so much, through the words and the eyes of the blogs I visit.
A big thank you for that too.
I even got to meet a fellow ‘blogger’ recently, and we had a great time. Thanks for a great day Frank.
Life still has the odd blip, the odd hiccup; but the old wheels turn a bit smoother now. When I stop to look at the natural world around me, and soak it up, everything else seems forgotten for a while. Insignificant. I’m in a place I’ve always wanted to be.
