Welcome To My Private Online Presence

Experts are quite clear that a Personal Blog has no place in the Online World. If you want to keep a journal of your life, then get out a pen and notebook and write out your thoughts each night and put the notebook next to your bed and go to sleep. We won't even go down the Password Protected road of blogging because the blogging police will come and lock us up.

Of course, we have all become self-appointed experts in every field you can think of. We have meticulously typed up posts on how to pack your Nappy Bag {diaper bag}, posts on how to shampoo your hair, how to label your child's school stationery, what not to do outside the school and when to visit the doctor. We are all experts on something and everything and 90% of the time our opinions on our blogs are just that - helpful conversation and tips and advice. Advice and tips you would give to other people standing around the school parking area or office vending machine or sitting in the doctor's waiting room. Let's face it there are people out in the world who don't know how to boil an egg or pack a nappy bag and this advice is always welcome. {Please read my disclaimer - any advice and or tips on this blog must be used with common sense and an expert [real] must always be consulted if you are unsure - as this is what works for me and may not work for the next person or family}

So pack your nappy Bag any damn way you want, because this post is not about nappy bags, but about why I don't write in a Diary or Notebook. Besides the fact that I have the worst handwriting you have ever seen, I actually can't even hold a pen or write anymore. Granted my hand and wrist aches when I type, but actually writing with a pen is pure torture. That isn't the reason either. My Journey or Blog is to record all of our memories so one day we can look back and remember all the things we have forgotten. One day Chad can say to JD "See, I told you my mom was crazy - look what she said over here" and JD can agree and say "Oh my goodness you right Chad and she thought I was her daughter".

OK, she probably wouldn't use the word "goodness" and Chad wouldn't want to read my blog, but if he did, how would he read it if everything is scrawled in a notebook next to my bed and he is  100 miles away. There are also others who, crazy as it may sound, would like to read my ramblings and follow our journey through life - people who I would love to have come along for the ride for as long as they want. People who won't have access to the Notebook lying next to my bed - so blogging experts there is a place Online for Personal Blogs and this is my space.

I have so many posts to fix up and changes I wanted to make before giving out the password, but if I leave it any longer, I will never give out the password. We are The Procrastinators after all and all the good intentions are there, but just never happen. I decided to revert the half finished posts back to draft and get to them another time and rather give out the password now

The last thing I want is for you to think that you were not part of the finely tuned list if you land up here without the password. Tomorrow, I am going to email out the password and I am ever so grateful that you want to follow our journey and have asked for the password. I am grateful and thankful that you want to read my ramblings that much that you will go to the effort of typing in a password when that time could be spent doing something more useful. The permission-based setting won't work because not everyone has a Gmail account who I have invited along on our journey or I should say who wanted to come along.

So six months ago, I went offline and today I am {Privately} Online again. It also means that today, I am 3 and a half years smoke-free and I am STILL craving like a demon. Will it ever go away??? My countdown ticker or count up ticker at the end of my page seems to have stopped at 3 years, 5 months and 18 days, I don't know why, but I haven't started smoking so not an issue. My Photobucket images are not working either, which means my signature at the end of this post doesn't work and neither on all the other posts. I was going to give up this post and abandon the whole idea thinking something went wrong when I changed to the .com domain but seems Photobucket is down and not any technical issues on my side.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to interacting with you back here on my Blog again.
