How and Why I Began Blogging...


I've always loved the internet. I remember life without the net LOL. Seriously! So when we got our first PC back in the erh* was it the 80's?, I dug around in it. I found something called Chatting. I thought, hey lets give it a whirl! I mean lets at least peek in! I found a place called Excite. I poked around the rooms and eventually settled in a room called Christian Chat. There I stayed...for about 10 yrs! I made some lifelong friends during that time, and continue to talk and email ect with them. I don't chat anymore. It takes longggg snippets of time. I have short snippets for the most part =)
I also met my husband in that chat room. A handsome endearing exciting and mysterious Welshman. We are still in the midst of immigration and THAT my'dears is another blog post Altogether hehe!!
So I love meeting people from all over the country and world. I love talking! Can you tell? I love people. It's the reason I became a nurse. And so..from chatting to blogging. A natural progression!!
Now my goal is to be a Great blogger!! I want the best looking and readable blog ever! So time will tell... =)
Now off to get the oil checked in my VW!! Chow~

This is an interesting post. I was looking for a Project Black post, but what you've written is quite similar to how I got started blogging.

No husband; I was married before the Internet was ever heard of. But I've made several friends and the one closest is from a Christian Chat Room on AOL. Haven't been there in years, but our early Internet friendship has grown into a strong "family" bonding. Addresses and phone numbers...

I'm Welsh, too. But only by blood. Don't know much about Wales. Too many generations have been in America too long. My First Wife is Italian.

Blessings.

We have this in common.....we both met our hubbies in Virtual Places (Excite!). How funny is that? We both navigated the immigration processes, you bringing your hubby over, and my hubby bringing me over. Small, small world. If it weren't for the computer, I'd likely have never met my hubby, nor you, yours. God bless computers & the internet! :)
