As I very often have the attention span of a fly on speed I probably should have stopped blogging by now. I have certainly surprised myself - there is nothing else that I do in my life with any regularity but after 21 months I still check my blog first thing every morning.
Statistics say that there are now over 70 million blogs worldwide so why am I bothering?
Pigheadedness started me off. A writing tutor scoffed at starting a blog, saying that I would never get anywhere with my writing on the interweb (lady eat your socks!).
I gave myself 3 months, plunged myself into the anonymity of Minx and tentatively dipped my toe in.
At first there were very few visitors but after discovering the joys of a stat counter I realised that there were more than I thought. You come from all over the world, some of you have stayed and others have drifted off to pastures new. Some of you leave comments but there are others who slip in quietly every single day and just leave behind the trace of your ISP footprint.
Some of you are googling some very weird stuff and come up with my blog - these are from the last two days...

Most of you are my lovely fellow bloggers and you're all mad, but who is madder?
You're here, and apparently so am I - blogging every few days, rattling on about nothing at all and telling you a load of old codswallop. Am I performing a service or just screaming into the void? Is it the decor, the ambiance, or the smell of freshly ground coffee that brings you back or are you just trying to avoid cleaning out the garage or doing the dishes (I am)?
Oh shit, maybe I should stop trying to analyse it.
Anyway, while you are here, my lovely visitor, pull up a comfy cushion, tell me all about your blogging habits and together we will blog in style until we lose interest and go off to do something more interesting!
