It’s nearly here. The Irish Blog Awards are tomorrow night. Yikes! Is this what I signed up for when I began blogging? I think not. I am rarely happier than when I am sitting down behind my laptop writing. The freedom I feel as I release my thoughts onto a page is similar to free … More Coming out from hiding.
Remember that miserable blogger who wrote the last post on this blog? Well that girl has left the building! Look at my shiny new button. Yes I am a finalist in the Irish Blog Awards, I have made it to the final ten in Best Personal Blog. When I read on facebook earlier today, that … More Good news!
Just a quick late night post to pass on my thank you to anyone who took the time to nominate me for this years Irish Blog Awards. I am thrilled to have my nomination accepted, even if I shamelessly pointed you in that direction. Last year I managed to make the finals, but being new … More Thank you, I’m chuffed.
Here we go. Once again a shameless post begging asking for a nomination in the Irish Blog Awards. Last year I was a new blogger, having only been blogging for five months when these awards came up. I was blown away to make it to the finals, but waaaah I didn’t win. Thankfully time heals, … More Hint hint!
I have just spent an hour typing, what was a difficult post. One which hurt. And guess what? I’ve lost it! I left my laptop briefly, in order to fill my empty glass. (Therein might lie the clue.) On return, my internet was down, my post a thing of the past! Will I write it … More Have you seen my post? No seriously I’ve lost it!
Tonight if I could I’d like to write a private post. A post to me, by me. A post where I could vent, worry, cry, moan and laugh. A post I would have written if I knew no one would read. Knowing others are reading, has in some ways removed the free flow of … More Tonight if I could…
Have you an old post you would love to repost? Perhaps a post you wrote from the heart but was not read by as many as you would wish? During the week I wrote a post in which I wondered what makes a post popular. I called it “Diary of a popular post”. One of … More Have you an old post you would love to re post?
Some days I feel it brewing. A nagging, ever present thought or feeling I can’t shake off. As I sit to write I stare at the empty screen before me. What will I write today? I play with the keys and eventually I feel my fingers begin to type. Each sentence is ended by, delete, … More Diary of a popular post.
Each Saturday here on this blog, I feature letters other bloggers and non bloggers have contributed. The variety of letters has been astounding. I have read each one and thoroughly enjoyed them. A year ago if I received a letter which was typed I would not have considered it a real letter. I would have … More Are we the last generation of real letter writers?
I have been writing a blog now for over one year. One year doesn’t seem like a very long time, but I have written almost every day. That is a lot of “my thoughts on a page”. Over the year I have seen a large number of bloggers disappear. It is frightening how many. Sometimes … More What keeps a blogger blogging?
