Yes I know the BBBC 2010 challenge is over, but I didn’t even see that it existed until today, and if I had seen it I would have participated, so, meh. It’s my blog and i’ll write what I want to.
Day 1’s topic was “Why did you become a blogger? How has it enriched your life?”
This is a bit of a loaded question for me. And by a bit, I mean a LOT.
I’ve had a blog in some form or another for like 13 years. I started writing just html, but then that was too ugly, so I learned to do some photoshoppery (ok it was printshoppery when started out, but whatever). Ive been writing in and designing blogs and personal websites ever since. Its not so much the blog content itself that has enriched my life, but having a blog meant that I had something to design for. This is finally what i ended up going to school for, and now I’ve graduated with a diploma (that’s fantastically useless in the UK) in New Media Production and Design.
