What brought you to blogging?


I am sitting here wondering what brought anyone who happens to be reading this to the blogosphere. Am I the only person who can’t remember how I got started? I remember where I got started but I don’t remember how I got there.
The first journal I ever read was Hashai. I was hooked from day one and started blog-surfing from there. So I can do a Six Degrees of Separation from Anna Beth sort of thing with every link on my blogroll, as each and every one was discovered through my original forays through her blogroll.
But as for what led me to that particular blog — or any blog, for that matter? I simply cannot recall. I knew absolutely nothing about the world of personal blogging, so it’s not that I was doing a search for ones to read. I must’ve stumbled upon it while looking for something entirely unrelated. I really wish I remembered! Alas, however, I am pathetic and old.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. I started blogging because my counselor at the time told me I should start to journal and at the same time I’d somehow heard or read about diaryland, can’t remember how, so I started a diary. That was almost 4 years ago.
