Following a post from my learned friend Jessica Best, I decided it was probably a good idea to write a mission statement of my own. Knowing myself pretty well after 23 years spent in my shoes (the metaphorical pair you’ll understand) I know I would find it all to easy to let this blogging malarky fall by the wayside now that it isn’t compulsory for uni work.

But the truth is, I’ve become rather fond of blogging. Maybe I did often leave it til the Wednesday when it had to be done by the Thursday morning and maybe I did moan and groan whenever anyone asked me that dreaded “have you blogged yet” question. But actually when all was said and done and I sat down to write the blasted posts it was usually a pretty painless experience and sometimes even an enjoyable one.

Yes, it is official, I have become a geek (at this point if you cared to probe my family and friends they would say “become a geek, she has always been a geek”).

From now on I will be blogging differently though. Blogging how I want, when I want and about whatever I want. No offence to Glyn but I think there is a rebellious streak in me which resented having to blog on online jornalism and all things web 2.0. What I may find now is that since the restrictions have been taken off I will blog about social media etc anyway, I am perverse in that way, my Mum didn’t used to call me Contrary Mary for nothing.

What I won’t do is tell you exactly what I’ll be blogging on,  at this stage I don’t really know and I would hate to limit my creativity and cause a bout of witer’s block (if I had it, here I would have used the ironic font)!

I will keep blogging though, you can count that as an early New Year’s resolution.
