Your Very First Blog Post

Blog KeyboardI told a nervous new blogger the other day “JUST START” there is no stigma, no perfection, no-one is judging you.  You know, the ‘everyone started somewhere’ speech.

(Talking of which: a big shout-out from me to @Nickie72of Typecast who encouraged me in those early days and who continues to support new voices.)

So, anyway, it got me thinking about my very first post(when I didn’t know any of you!!) and which I dragged out from behind the wardrobe today.  Funnily enough, I wasn’t ashamed of it and didn’t writhe in OMG!!! histrionics. Not much, anyway.

What about you?  What was your first post? Do you still love it or should it be held up as a ‘how not to do it’ example?  I’ll show you mine if you show me yours!

It was two people ridiculing the advent of social media in the life of one of their friends and how ‘stupid’ this absent friend was to regard some of her online cohorts as ‘friends’. This got me thinking because, I must admit, 18 months ago I may have shared a little (just a little) of the same view. Not about technology per se, in which I am well versed, but the whole thing of ‘online friends’.   Read more >

Her Majesty The Queen’s Apology

Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II, has by royal command ceased this week’s Make It Stop! Friday advice column in demanding a very public apology from the opinionating upstart, Mrs HerMelness Speaks. Dear HMS HerMelness Speaks,One is somewhat concerned that a recent epistle of yours entitled ‘Dear Kate Middleton’ implies, and from which can be inferred, that one spends one’s pension allowance on Vodka, thereby leaving no funds for the wedding of one’s Grandson to the commoner, Miss Middleton. In this wise, I would ask that you please ‘Make It Stop!’ and print a retraction and apology with all haste if one is to avoid ‘a misunderstanding’ with the gallows.   Read more >
