So....why do I blog?
My main reason for beginning was to establish a 'place' where my friends in Florida could check up on what I was doing. Phone calling is great, but not always convenient for both people. This way keeping in touch was made easier. Then I found that my blog gave me a place to meet people and 'talk'...sharing interests and stories, getting feedback. Here in blogland I can share with friends rather than always talking to myself (grin) and it's enjoyable to get a glimpse of life away from here.

[Wow, that sounds very mundane]

And now for satisfying my curiosity and tagging some others.
Heads up Annette and Claire (who has been silent for a while)
May I add that I wish Mary would start writing a blog?

Hi Deb, yes I have been AWOL lately haven't I! I'll do the tag after next week, it will be good to remind myself about blogging! I'm getting really nervous about my exams now (this Friday and next Thursday. I am SO looking forward to this bit being over with, it feels like the most unpleasant thing I've actually chosen to do right now. Oh well, hopefully it will be worth it!
