I don't suppose there will be many as there are only meant to be about 750,000 in the UK, and a lot of those aren't 'active' i.e. set up a Blog and then it lies dormant.

Have seen some interesting stuff in the last day regarding the way in which blogs have become the 'new media' especially with things like the London Blasts - often 'news' was breaking first on blogspots etc way before the usual channels (BBC/ SkY etc).

Or, recommend any interesting blogs?

I think I need one....

My DS(9) has one. He likes living riddles & seeing if anyone gets them!

Dh has a couple of blogs. One which he seems to be prattling away on all the time, and one on which he posts transcripts of his sermons.

those are good sites for getting your own blog/journal imo.

i have a livejournal, but it's locked so only really close friends and my dh can read it.

lilaclotus Sat 09-Jul-05 20:30:43

that would be (not dairy!)

swiperfox Sat 09-Jul-05 20:33:10

i deinately want to do one but i registered to the one i found on the link and then sat there and thought 'now what?' lol I want to keep one for the kids progress as something to
show when they're older

swiperfox, that's exactly why i write in one now. i put up loads of pictures and anecdotes of dd's adventures. i used to write during my depression and it helped a lot to get my thoughts out. and i got enormous support from my online friends through it.

for hte most part the y are yawnsville

is livejournal easy to use and navigate? I just want somewhere that we can put all our personal stuff in, mark down milestones for the little ones and stick a load of pics. It's more for us than anything!!

I used to have a diary-x and I got loads of comments etc, and had loads of fun learning HTML and designing it (how sad am I!) but after a bit I ran out of interesting things to say and I discovered I didn't have the time so I shut it down...

I mean having friends on/from MN is a little strange but when they've just floated in from anywhere on the net it's weird!

mO2 - it's mine but, as you can see, I haven't been particularly active recently.
