It’s hard to believe but Diary From England has been on line for nearly two years now. I first started blogging in January 2006. I still remember my very first post:-
Happy New Year From England
My last big milestone was my 500th post – how time flies when you’re having fun!
As some of you know, I enjoy writing and am currently working on my first book. I find writing very therapeutic and relaxing, especially after a stressful day at work. I originally started the blog as a good way to practise my writing skills. I also thought it would be good for people to hear about news and life in England firsthand from somebody who lives there.
The best thing about blogging at Diary from England is the number of great cyberfriends I have made, both from England, the U.S. and all over the world. I love it when people leave nice comments or e-mail me to say how much they enjoy Diary from England. It makes it all worthwhile. I have met some really nice people since I started blogging. I always like to try to support everyone by visiting friends’ blogs as often as I can, although I don’t always manage this due to lack of time! One of the best things I ever did was becoming a member of Blog Village. I saw the Blog Village banner on a couple of blogs when I was surfing around and went across to find out more. I love the community atmosphere at Blog Village and have made a lot of friends over there.
Another thing I love about blogging is the carnivals. I’ve definitely been hit by the carnival bug and am looking forward to hosting my own England Goes Gonzo Carnival here on Monday 1st October. You can find further details of this carnival by following the link below:-
