Daily Prompt: Share the Love

Tell us about another blogger who has influenced your own online journey.

Hmm… a difficult one, given that I have been around the blogging block more times than than most.

I think that I must point the finger at Nalsa, of Backwards Lion (and others), if only because it was he who pointed me in the direction of LiveJournal back in the days when I was hand coding my online diary in HTML and Notepad. Thus were born:

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
