I can be a bit flakey about keeping things up so today I’m feeling really rather pleased with myself because I’ve managed to keep writing my blog, reasonably regularly, for five whole weeks. Although five weeks isn’t the longest of times, it is definitely long enough to give me a little lift heading into the dreaded Bank Holiday weekend.
I’ve spent a little bit of time trying to work out what I want my blog to be when it grows up. Sometimes I think I want to use it to record my progress, sometimes I think I want to use it to set out how I feel, and sometimes I think I want to use it to write down what’s been going in my world.
And then it occurred to me that it can be all of those things as well as anything else I decide I want it to be in the future – it is my blog after all!
If I’m going to be writing about the things that go on in my world, I’ll probably have to mention my friends and family from time to time and since I don’t even use my own name when blogging it didn’t feel right to be referring to those people by name. At the same time ‘my friend’ and ‘another friend’ and a ‘different friend’ might get a little tiresome and confusing in the fullness of time.
Anyway, I’d already written about a few of my nearest of dearest giving each one an alias along the lines of a Mr Men character so I thought I’d revive that naming convention just in case I wanted to distinguish between the people who are part of my story. What a cunning plan! I posted a list here, but if and when I use them I’ll give the person a suitable introduction the first time round*.
*Actually, it’ll be the next time round because I’m off to the pub with Mr Hungry, Mr Hilarious, Mr Brave, Mr Nice and Mrs Sparkle shortly and I haven’t got time to do the full into bit right now!

Woo! nomination for you – http://sparrowinthesnow.wordpress.com/2012/06/02/how-do-these-award-things-work/
Awww! Thanks so much for thinking of me.
My blog is a mish mash of stuff. I had, in the past, so many blogs that reflected different parts of my personality, I decided this one would just be everything.
Mr Men names sound funky cool.
Jubilee schmubilee indeed by the way.
Grats on 5 weeks! I also love the Mr Men names. They’re cute. Sounds like you’re looking forward to the jubilee about as much as I am.
Jubilee Schmubilee 🙂
Yep, your blog does not have to be defined- so it’ll alway have room to grow and stay creative and free… and I love the Mr Men idea 😀
