How/ why did you get sucked into the blogging whirlpool?
I started blogging after much cajoling by my friend Queenie, who had recently started blogging herself. She insisted it would be a good idea for me to have a blog so we could read each others! Also she knew I would be having a long period of inactivity due to an impending operation. I finally relented and started my blog because I thought it would be a good idea to keep a journal of my recovery after my op. Also I like gossiping!
How long ago did you start?
I started blogging on the 11th February 2007, and apart from the few days I was in hospital having my op and a couple of days afterwards I don't think I've missed a day! How's that for
Who introduced you?
Queenie, but my son had mentioned it to me about 12 months ago and he showed me how to set the blog up. After that I just found my own way round, first visiting Queenie and some people on her blogroll, then just following other links until I found blogs I resonated with and built up my own blogroll.
Who was your very first visitor, and do you both still visit each other?
Queenie was my first visitor, my son posted annonymously, then Annelisa and yes we still visit each other.
How has your blog changed from your first posts, and did you envisage it developing the way it has?
I don't think my blog has changed very much really, except that I have discovered how to do more things like uploading photographs and I've filled my sidebar more. I didn't envisage anything at all, I didn't really think about it, but it has become all consuming at times!
Have you any other blogs and, if so, what is their purpose?
No, I only have one blog at the moment, but I am considering starting another one. My Dad wrote a biography about his mother (my grandmother) a few years ago, which I typed up for him. It's only short and I did send it to a few publishers for him but they weren't interested, so I am contemplating publishing it on a blog because I think it's really good and I would love others to read it.
Now I suppose I should tag someone else how about Gewels, I think she said she's only been tagged once ever. Maybe La Bellina Mammina and Linda would like to tell us their tale too. But only if you want to ladies, and anyone else who fancies it I TAG you too.
Answer the questions
Tag if you want, or leave it open for people to choose to do it or not ...however you feel comfortable.

I think the knee fairy has been at work as it has improved a lot over the past couple of days. Yesterday I hardly used my crutch at all, but then I was only inside the house or out in the garden.
