A Meme About Blogging

Ttony from the depths of the Muniment Room has challenged me to complete the Blogging Meme. Ok, here we go...

1. How did you start blogging?
I started with comments on a few blogs, but found that I had more to say. It seemed to be more "honest" to put up my own blog posts for people to read (or not!)

2. What do you hope to achieve or accomplish with your blog? Have you been successful?
I didn't actually hope to achieve anything. I wanted to be able to speak out about the things which concerned me, and the things I found interesting. It's a very personal view of things. As I have obviously wittered on about various things to my heart's content, and had the odd rant as the fancy took me, yes, I'd say I "succeeded."

3. Has the focus of your blog changed since you started blogging? How?
No. It's just my own views and interests (and rants about my pet hates.) And it isn't particularly focussed anyway.

4. What do you know now that you wish you'd known when you started?
How much fun it would be: I'd have started sooner!

5. Does your immediate or extended family know about your blog? If so, do they read it? If not, why?
I reserve the right to remain silent...

6. What advice would give to a new blogger?
Remember that blogs are very public. Don't write anything that you would not be happy saying to someone's face. Have fun. Don't fret about what you think people "want" to read, just blog for yourself and your own amusement (if you worry that you "haven't posted anything interesting today", it will become a chore, and that misses the point.) And then just go for it!

Ok, I tag Ma Beck, Fr Justin and Fr. John Boyle.

Ooh, do you have the right to remain silent in Britain as well? ;-)
