As I’ve mentioned many times before, this whole blog thing really is new to me. I started the blog back in August (of 07 08, so that would make it 8 months ago). Prior to that I hadn’t really read many blogs. At least not regularly. And the ones I did read were the big poltical and pop culture blogs.
The very first time I laid eyes on a dating blog was after I decided to start one of my own. You see, I had a few friends who’d been trying to get me to write a book about my dating life. They’re like me in that they really didn’t know much about blogs and blogging. They wanted me to write about dating and since we’re all really book consumers, they suggested I write a book.
I’m not sure when I thought ot the idea of making it a blog. I must have read something in the Times about somebody who had a blog and anyway, I started to look for dating blogs to see what was out there. There was a lot out there (well, you know that). A lot. And truthfully, I couldn’t relate to a lot of it. But I wanted to share with you a few of the sites that got me thinking about what my site might be like, once I got started. And to provide them all with a bit of linklove.
Now, if you’re familiar with these sites you know that my blog doesn’t have much in common with any of them. Other than that they’re all written by smart women. But reading them made me realize that I could make my blog into pretty much anything I wanted it to be (and that’s still evolving).
Anyway, that’s how I got here. I know I still have a long way to go. And I’m working on it.
