My first post is about the first post of others. It’s a collection of randomly gathered statements from randomly picked bloggers from different countries, different domains. Some are new to blogging, some were already at their second blog.
I was wondering if they have something in common, a certain shared statement of why they started, why they were there.
My research (which really wasn’t a research at all) couldn’t spot it. They started blogging for different reasons. But they were all aware of an audience.

Therefore, dear visitor/friend(as most probably only close friends will read this post), I can only tell you: welcome! It’s a bit messy here as I’m still cleaning up after my birthday party (which by the way, it was one of the best I’ve had so far)!
I will come back shortly with a statement of purpose or an about.
Until then, I’m still collecting first posts! Send them over! 🙂
