Here I was, planning a post where I whine about my inability to abstain from more MOOCs, and then Debra from C-Dog & Company comes along and nominates me for this: The Lovely Blog Award.
First of all: thank you so much, Debra! And, friendly reader, go to her blog immediately and check it out if you haven’t yet, it is lovely, informative, moving, funny — everything a good blog should be.
Second of all: Wha? I mean… I’m so new to this blog thing here on WordPress, that I just don’t know my way around yet. I mean, saying thank you can never be wrong, but the rest of the bloggiquette still escapes me. I shall follow Debra’s example and post the rules and my own nominees a month from now.
In the meantime, I signed up for Blogging 101 on The Daily Post. This will hopefully teach me Netiquette and the ins and outs of the blogosphere, it looks very promising to a Newbie like me who just started a blog, wrote along naïvely, thinking to be on my own mostly, and was amazed at the interesting people who already found me — I don’t know how — and are already introducing me to a completely unexpected experience. And this to me, who doesn’t really have much to say (that’s why the posts are so long).
It’s odd to call myself a Newbie, I’ve been on the interwebs since 1995 and done a lot of things. I even had a fandom related place you could call a blog. This here, however, is more personal and hence all new, and will hopefully be less stressful since I’ll not commit to anything that forces me to post more than once a week. I set this as a minimum for myself. I aim at three posts per week, I think that much I can manage.
