Hello there – here we go again.
Back in August I started a blog on WordPress, and this was my introductory post.
I wrote a couple of things, then set it up so my Instagram images and caption recounts would post automatically as I moved to Paris and started to travel around Europe again. This time though, things are more real. This is a legit website, I aim to take my writing more seriously, and I have a lot of ideas I want to explore.
Feel free to tag along for the ride, who knows where we may end up… 🙂
This is not my first time at writing a blog. Yes, it is the first time under this particular page, but I have been writing digital word pieces for years, and well, tomorrow has finally came.
I was nine years old when I got my brother to help me make my first email address, which I still use to this day – no the number does not correlate to the year, that’s a whole other story…
I can’t remember when or where my first ‘blog’ post or writing even was as I’ve been wading through the realms of Hotmail, chat rooms, MSN Spaces, Ringo, Bebo, MySpace, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram and many more – all of which have had chunks of writing attached to them over the past 15 years. Except perhaps Ringo? That was pretty old-school early high school years and I think may have only contained photographs, and comments from “dirty-old Turkish men,” so that didn’t last too long.
Some of the above I discontinued, some became obsolete, some are still there and collecting dust, and others are there as I continue to use them fairly frequently. I can still recall the movement to MySpace from Bebo and having friends say – “Oh my god, no way I’m not using that, it’s too complicated,” followed by the Facebook movement, when it took quite some time for people to move over, change, and consequently get stuck in the mud of social media.
So now, Instagram is my muse, but the caption character count is more often than not proving too small for me – so here we are, where unlimited? word counts and many more of my images can merrily mingle.
A few words about me (for the not so tech-savvy, click the word ‘about’ for a link to what I am referring to).
p.s. I can’t wait to have writings intermingle like over on the fantabulous Brain Pickings, where sentences are full of referring links to articles, information, and other interesting things, both on blog and off.
Let the writings begin… oh, and the images. Can’t forget the visual stories now.
