What’s a blogger?

Dear Diary – Well, here it is…my first blank blog page, but what to do with it? What’s a blogger?

I’ve got a site and it’s beginning to grow as I fight against the workings of the machine to craft the pages I have thought about for so long now. Thing is, I know there is nobody here (or is it there when you’re blogging?). With the exception of a couple of friends and one or two family members, no-one even knows about this site yet!

OK, so I guess one or two people might stumble over this space quite by accident, but I’ve told the crawling robots to stay away for a while until I’m ready to be Googled (and I’m still not sure about that). I think there is probably a more technical way to describe that, but…to all intents and purposesI am now talking to myself!!!

– They said this would happen if I left my proper job and here I am…talking to myself!

So, what do you write when you’re talking to yourself? My plan, for starters, is to use this as a Dear Diary” space (I think), mainly because I never had one as a child. I always wanted one, indeed I started a diary several times, but just couldn’t find the energy or enthusiasm to keep it going regularly. In fact I was far more interested in the bookbinding process and the cover art than writing what had happened each day. I’ve always admired the folks who ¬†could keep it up and I’m sure years later they are still at it, and they probably enjoy re-reading their tales of yore but the regular diary wasn’t for me.

So, here I am many years later already in at the deep end and committing to use this space as a “dear diary” type space. Is that what a blogger does? Is that what a blogger is? ¬† Can I claim to be a blogger if I write to myself? It sounded like a good idea at the time of starting so let’s hope the cover art doesn’t distract too frequently and I have something useful to say and share once in a while…do pop back and check out what happens…please.
