This is my second try at blogging. My first was a bit of a work-related experiment. To see just how much time it took to run a blog as a communications tool for my organisation. It took too much for me! Or maybe it was just that I wasn’t actually doing it during the working day. Mind you, that was because I didn’t have the time. So anyway, to cut a long story short, over a year I only managed to post three times.
But I like having a blog. It is fun – providing a space for being creative and for writing in a different way to what I do at work. And there is something intriguing about sharing yourself with an unknown audience (unknown who, where or if you even have one).
As I write, I can hear the rhythmic tapping of my husband, no doubt punching out another post on his blog. I’ve always commented to him that the blogosphere seems to be male-dominated. At least all the geopolitical blogs he reads seem to be mainly inhabited by men, as do the posts. I tease him that it is because women are too busy actually running the household and the world to spend time sucked into a computer-mediated conversation. But hey, here I am. Maybe there is a feminist revolution about to occur in the blogosphere. Or maybe, and more likely, I’ve simply caught up with all the fembloggers out there.
But alas, there is washing to fold, chores to do and a few lanes to swim. So we’ll both be logging off for a while.
