#blogtober16 Why I started blogging



Why I started blogging

I have been blogging since 1996 way before it was cool, and to be honest I did it as an online diary. I remember back in the day I used to hand code my posts and entire layout of my site using PHP made from scratch then I discovered WordPress in 2003 and never looked back.

I began blogging as a means of a personal diary, this was just beginning to take off and I discovered a ton of others doing the same thing – most have fell away from it but there are few that I have been following for years that are still going strong.

Blogging for me hasn’t really changed – I have seen so many new blogs pop up daily and blogging in a whole is all focused now on what niche you fall into – I tried the whole niche thing and its not for me, personal is the way for me. I am a general blogger, perhaps lifestyle? I am not sure what label people would class me as, but thats ok – I am going to keep doing what I am doing as its what I am most comfortable with.

I started out on GeoCities with FeeFee Trixybells Homepage, then bought my first domain kinky-cherries.com – which I still have but tend to use this site more so now.



So HexMum a blog I have just discovered, has some prompts for #blogtober16 and I am going to play along (or rather catch up) Check out her site by clicking the button below:





Fee is a 35 year old mother of three, who has been on the blogging scene since 1996. Over the years she has tried to change her style but finds the personal diary effect to be her niche - there are not many of those around in the blogging world nowadays.
