Gratuitous pet pics.

There’s no story here, I just thought it was time for a cute doggie pic. Oh one thing, the beagle has the unnerving habit of sleeping with his eyes partially open, its really weird.

I had a thought about blogging.

I had planned to keep this as a draft for when the creative juices dried up so I would at least have a filler, but apparently the Blogging Chicks have this for the topic of their upcoming Carnival so I’m going to post it now to prove I’m not a copycat. It was written last night.

Being new to blogging I’m presently caught up in the novelty of it all. I really only started because I was reading blogs and didn’t like to leave a comment as anon, so I got a blogger account. Then I figured what the hell I might as well write something.

I’ve always said that I’d prefer to read blogs and leave comments rather than write my own, that’s not to say I don’t enjoy writing mine, I just enjoy reading other’s more. I’ve got three or four that I check everyday and many more that I check every few days, its great to look into other people’s lives.

Then it dawned on me why I like the whole blogging thing! As a young child I was always envious of other kids who had a pen-friend but I never had the gumption to find out how to get one for myself. To me blogging is very much like the 21st century equivalent of penfriends.

Sure, as I got older and made acquaintances, I wrote and received letters. And later still sent and received regular emails. But this is different, here you don’t know the people you’re writing to but can still become friends without ever meeting them. And that to me is the whole point, sharing something with someone you have no plans to ever meet.

I’ve always felt chatrooms to be a bit unsavoury (from the stuff I’ve seen on TV) and in truth have never been in one. Same goes for forums, although I’ve looked at a few but there always seems to be arguments and insults, something that is conspicuously absent from the blogs that I read.

The only problem now is, after 2 months of blogging I’m starting to realise that after a few more funny stories and a handful of pictures, my good stuff will all be used up and my boring life will catch up with me and I’ll be fucked. Hopefully I’ll cause myself some harm before then, that’s always good for a laugh.

Speaking of having a laugh, after two months of laboriously hand checking my spelling because the spell checker has never worked, I just discovered it was because I had popups disabled. sheesh.
