12 Years a Blogger

It's hard to believe but 12 years ago today I turned on my computer, registered with Wordpress.com and started my first ever blog "Nosceres World", later I changed its name to iJimUK. You can still see the posts I made back then can still be read "Here"

I knew I had been blogging for some time but WordPress brought it home to me today when I received a notification this morning on my Wordpress app with this to find a notification telling me I have been blogging for 12 years..



Who would have thought that 12 years later I would still be writing blog posts.

In The Beginning. When I first started my blog I had no idea what I wanted to write about, all I knew is that I wanted to blog and that's what I did, I made posts about anything and everything. As most of you know a few years later I started making video's on YouTube, I wanted to make it so that people who read my posts could watch what had to say, least that was the plan, I ended up concentrating more on YouTube than I did my blog.

I recently made a return to what I consider I do best, writing blog posts. I still have my YouTube channel but this time I am using YouTube as a medium to make my blog posts better, along with my podcast account with Anchor.fm where I record off the cuff #RealLife podcasts, all created with one thing in mind. To make my blog as enjoyable and interactive as possible.

They say that you should write a blog about what you know best, so I am going to write about me and my lifestyle. A middle aged fat bloke with four children lots of dogs, a couple of cats and a tortoise.

It's taken 12 years but I finally feel like my blogging has a purpose and a direction.
