Ann @ For the long run is our host this week;
Here are Da rules;
Now, the reason you're here: the topic for Fun Monday on
14 January. I want to hear about a web site and not just
about any old web site. I want to hear about a web site that's
changed your life.
Too easy Ann, you are looking at it right now… “Holtieshouse”… before you all jump on me for being so conceited as to think my own little Blog could be a life changing web site, let me explain.
It’s rapidly approaching three years ago now since my middle son Marcus created a Blog site, when he told me about it I thought, “what a neat idea, I wonder whether I could do that” you see I’m the perfect example of the horrors of unskilled labour, a self taught amateur geek.
So I set out with absolutely no idea what I was doing and thanks to the help of the much maligned team at Blogger I managed to create my very own Blog, yes the very one you are now reading, that was all very well but I had no idea what I was going to do with it… it had been the technical challenge rather than a desire to write or be read that had inspired me.
Having always been fond of a joke and being blessed with a warped sense of humour I quickly fell into a pattern of telling a few jokes and spinning a hopefully funny tale every now and again… it hasn’t changed all that much really, probably not as funny now, but we try.
From this very humble base has grown the web site that is so important in my life, certainly not because it contains any gems of wisdom or gifted content… No, simply because it puts me into the center of a group of wonderful individuals who I have grown to think of as my friends,
We as Bloggers have a unique place in history, never before has it been possible to communicate instantly with people all over the world about any subject we choose, and because we tend to congregate in groups with like interests, to very quickly become “friends” with these people that we will probably never meet.
If there is a more life changing Web Site out there than this I’ve not yet found it and given the amount of time I spend here I probably never will.
Go and check out some of the other favourite web sites listed at Ann's site.
