I can’t believe how quickly the last year has gone. Have you noticed that the older you become, the faster time goes by. One theory is that each year you live is a lesser percentage of your life. When you were a four year old, a year was 25% of your entire life. To a centurion, a year is a mere 1%!
Exactly one year ago I decided to start a blog. To this day I cannot put my finger on what led me to start - to me bloggers, and anyone who listed computers as a hobby, were anoraks, nerds! Yet that decision changed my life. My entire lifestyle changed. And when 6 months later an advert for Helium popped up on my blog, my obsession with writing went to a new level!
I suppose I was steered toward writing by my family. I decided that instead of sending postcards when I was away on my holidays, I’d keep a diary. Once home I would type them out and distribute them. They went down well, and it was suggested I use them as part of an autobiography.
So, like bloggers the world over, I now think in prose! Every situation I find myself in is turned into an essay in my mind! I often drift away into my own world of words , sentences and paragraphs. I’ve become a nerd!
My first blogs were pretty poor. All my efforts during the first couple of months have long since been deleted. But one year on, I am still tapping away on my keyboard at every opportunity. My sleeping hours get shorter, and my comfortable couch hardly gets sat on!
So what will the next year bring? Will I still be blogging in September 2008? Who knows!
