If I'm going to keep at this blog, I need to figure out what I'm going to write about.  To do that I need to figure out what I'm interested in, what moves me, what will keep me writing.  Tricky.

I could use it as an exploration kind of tool, a way of rediscovering 'who I am', what I'm about.  Seems kind of self absorbed.

I could post the trillion kilobyte worth of pics building up of my main man Louie.  Who is interested beside me and The Wrinklys?

I could come across all savvy and cute and highlight the little corners of our lives that I deem blog worthy.

Very tricky.


So.  I'll do all of the above and try to not give a flying fuck about any of it being read.  Or maybe just by one little person, because ultimately I'd like to say to Louie in 10+ years time - or when I deem it appropriate for him to read his mum's swear words - "hey kid, here's some ramblings I kept up with when you were new and we were figuring each other out, when I was falling deeply in awe of you, when I gloated to cyberspace about your 'firsts', posted embarrassing pics of you.  It's also a bit about me and who your old mum is.  And your dad.  Your first house.  What was around you.  I thought you might like to know".


I'm pretty sure you'll be horrified.

    hell, it's becoming so standard that if you don't do it, he'll grow up and be all, 'where's my blog ma?' ;)

  2. too true Bron, every bit of these kids lives are well documented and picked over by their parents. It kind of concerns me that there is a digital archive of Louie's life already...perhaps it leaves him open to potential bullying or worse? That's why people use pseudonyms I'm guessing? Opps....
