I enjoy sharing the stuff that fascinates me, talking with other people who are interested in the same things as I am, and it gives me a creative outlet.
It does vary, or at least I try to mix it up. When I'm not feeling so creative I have some good stand-by's to keep me going. Gives me some structure when the inspiration is a little thin.
I mix it up. I don't really have a strict style or type. I have whatever interests me at the time. I have been trying to at least include a picture/photo or video in each post though, just to break up the text and make it easier on the reader's eye. I do try to post regularly, at least 4 days a week.
Well, I think I was always a bit of a geek girl, having spent my entire life with my nose in a book and being one of those people who becomes obsessed with things that interest me rather than just being interested in them. I surprised myself by ending up in IT, because I went from being a child care worker, to library assistant... and then ended up working in library IT and really found my "place". I started blogging a few years ago when I made the decision to take my first overseas trip (3 months in the US) for my 35th birthday. At first it was just a blog to spur me on to the trip, then it grew into my travel blog for everyone wanting to keep up with me. I became so hooked on blogging that I now have several of them, the two main ones being listed above.
