What inspired me to start a blog? What inspires me to blog? Two very different questions!
I had thought about bogging before. My very famous auntie Marie is an accomplished blogger on another well-known blog platform which we won’t mention here. My daughter blogged for a while when she was obsessed with all things fashion.
I didn’t really want to just have an online diary, but I really wasn’t sure what on earth to blog about…. and then I was working full time so I didn’t have the time to look into the blogiverse…
I am a keen amateur photographer, and have my pocket camera with me (with a spare battery & SD card) at all times. We love being outdoors, be it in this country or abroad, and I photograph what I see all the time. I have hard drives full of photos, and finally I have found a place to share them!!
Knowing where to start has always been a problem for me, and the Weekly Photo Challenges have provided the perfect inspiration for me to tell a story about one or two of my favourite photographs. I don’t have any fancy photo editing software, just Paint and MS Picture Manager, and my beloved camera lens has a scratch on it which shows in some photos more than others, but I muddle through.
This photo of Me, Peter & Wilson was taken by my daughter this year on a hillside near Brighton on my last birthday (29 obviously). I took some smashing photos of Wilson that day, I will devote a post to them soon!
I have now learned my way around WordPress a bit & have just read your article about ‘internal anchor tags‘ (see if you can find one in this post 🙂 ), I am planning on having a whole section of pages (as opposed to posts) on my experiences in the different countries around the world I have travelled to! I am really excited about this and really wish I didn’t have to keep looking for a job as it is taking me away from my new addiction – blogging!
Thank you WordPress for making it so user-friendly. If a 29 (and a bit) year old can learn my way around it… anyone can! 🙂
