About My Blog

Thursday, March 16, 2006


I got this idea from Chloe, who got it from someone else, I believe....so now you know!

1)Why and how did you start your blog?
I didn’t really know what blogs were all about until I started reading Rosie’s. Most of the people leaving comments had one and so I thought I’d start one up.

2) If you have a special 'nom de blog', how did you choose it?
I didn’t; my mother did!

3) How did you come up with the name for your blog?
My original blog had a different name but after about a month, I deleted the entire thing by mistake. “Here I Go Again” was literally named because I was starting over again.

4) What things do you tend to blog about the most, and why?
I started off blogging in the midst of Hurricane Katrina and I was infuriated by the whole response so initially my blog was a place for me to fume about things going on in the news and miscellaneous meaningless stuff. I didn’t blog about anything personal at first. But then, as friends started coming by to “visit”, I started to talk about my life a little bit more and post my photos. Right now, I would say that I primarily talk about things that are going on in my life, and with my family, but I mix in things that I react to that are going on in Canada and the world.

5) Are there subjects you'd like to blog about, but don't, and if so, what is stopping you?
I would like to talk about my work more, but don’t think that it is appropriate for anonymity’s sake. I also would like to post more photos and in general, feel more open to discuss precisely everything that is on my mind. I find myself editing my thoughts every now and then. I know I have are lurkers.

6) How do you organize your blogroll/links?
There is no order other than the fact that newer blog friends get added to the list, so most recent ones are towards the bottom.

7) How do you feel about the design of your blog?
I actually quite like it, given that I tinker at the code myself. I change it seasonally (some of you might remember the red and green Christmas theme). I will be changing it again some day soon.

8) How often do you post new entries on your blog? Would you like to post more (or less) often?
I usually post every day. When I don’t, it is simply because I am really busy with work, family and life!

9) How often do you read and/or comment on other blogs? How do you find new blogs to read?
I try to read the blogs on my links every day or every other day and comment as much as I possibly can. I used to search for new blogs to read but I feel like I am a bit maxed out right now, and plus, I have a really great group of friends.

10) Have you done anything special to get others to read and/or comment on your blog?
Not really. I just hope that you enjoy it!

    What was your original blog called? I do enjoy this one a lot :)

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    chloe, I soooo would have been first if I'd typed my password in right :)

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    phew! just wanted to make sure i was the first to comment and now i can really make my comment :)

    i had no idea you had another blog at first! and i might go look through the archives to find out about your views on the news.
    My clever friend. :) xx

    Chloe and Stephanie;
    I am suddenly in sixth grade and we are racing to touch the flagpole first; I win, no I win. Suddenly a cat fight breaks out...:)

    My original blog had a very very stupid title. So I am glad that I deleted it by accident! If you realy must know, I can whisper it to you.

    If you do go back you will notice they are not views but a post-partem maniac ranting...

    Fun....I love reading things like this. And, we all *do* love your blog!

    I went back and read September.
    And i loved seeing that little avatar you had back then.
    Sorry, i'm in a retro mood :) xxxx

    I like how the name came about--very cute. So, how are you? Thanks for the encouragement. I know that you are right--that one day I will wish again for these days. That's basically what I've been trying to do--I feel when I try to do too many things for myself while they are around, that's when they drive me most the most crazy. They can be so loving if they know that I'm concentrating on them only. Last week, while we were walking down this little street of stores, Faith, out of the blue, says, "I love you, Mommy." That meant so much. They somehow know and show little appreciations that I'm trying to do special outings with them completely in mind. :) Have a great weekend. Talk to you later. :)

  1. Blogger Connie and Rob said:

    I always enjoy visiting you! Love seeing pictures of your cutie pie kids.

  1. Blogger Heidi said:

    I start my day with a cup of Coffee and a Cathy..Enjoyable indeed! :)

  1. Blogger erikku said:

    I like your blog's design very much - calm and soothing - though the Christmas look was my fave.

  1. Blogger fb said:

    I like the pictures of the diverse weather and geography that surrounds you and the way you write and the pictures of the babe that would be king.

  1. Blogger Devil Mood said:

    Cathy, it was really nice to read your answers. I think everyone's curious about that first blog name but...you know best.
    I really like your blog design too, I wonder what's it going to look like next :)

  1. Blogger Neo said:

    Cathy - Happy St. Patrick's Day!

    Peace & Hugs,

    - Neo

    I totally enjoy your blog. You are interesting, smart, funny...just all around entertaining. I love the pictures you take and am glad you started sharing them....especially your kids.

    :):)

    Dr. Deb;
    Thanks! You are among my first blog friends.

    Chloe;
    I went back and read it myself; sheesh I was on a tear...

    Marel;
    It is wonderful when they randomly say these things. Hang in there. Once again, I so completely know where you are coming from. Just take those moments for yourself every now and then. xoxo

    Connie and Vani;
    Thanks, and I really enjoy coming by your sites as well.

    DayByDay;
    I spent an hour and a half last night working on a new design and got absolutely nowhere...sigh.

    Heidi;
    Thank you, my friend. We understand one another :) {}

    Eric;
    A new image for you; I like the blinking eyes! I agree; the Christmas design was also my favourite and I have never been completely happy with this design. We'll see where it goes...

    fb;
    Thank you for telling me that you like the outdoorsy photos. I sometimes wonder if people do. I take so many of them that some days that's all I've got. Ah yes, and the babe who thinks he's (I mean would be) King..he's getting new teeth and has been quite the crank. Poor babe.

    Devil Mood;
    I also wonder what it will look like next!

    Neo;
    Happy St. Paddy's to you as well (although I didn't celebrate it)...did you?

    MomyBlogR;
    I totally enjoy your blog as well.
