My, aren't we a pair of fun guys.....

Really this episode of Inner Ramblings has nothing to do with fungi but I love these pics, don't you?

So, it seems that so many of us are blogging these days, all over the blogosphere are
talented ladies telling stories of their day, sharing pictures and  remarkable works
of creativity and genius. Talented guys too... Otin for example.. I read his stuff
but rarely comment because he's so "followed" I figure he stops reading after
the millionth comment and  have never gotten into to the top three.

Anyway, it occurred to me that somewhere circa 1996 or so, there probably
were no bloggers anywhere... i don't know exactly when it started or when it
got to be pretty much a household hobby for "normal" peeps at home. I think I read
somewhere that Blogger has been going for ten years (don't bother to correct me,
I'll only thumb my nose at you for being a know it all).  So what in the
world were we doing before this?  Can you remember not having a computer, an
iPhone, a Nikon, a blog????? URgghhh I know you're disgusted with
yourself for even daring to remember such a backward way of life.

I think I probably watched more tv before I got involved in the bloggies.... or
cleaned house!!! Imagine such a life!!!! I sure didn't take as much interest in my
pictures and wouldn't have dreamed of making my own posters to frame and
display in my living room.... yeah that's right people... I have my very
own work hanging there for all to see...some people even like it.

There's also the wonderful, wonderful blog camp to consider. How in the
world would I have come up with an notion to travel clear across the country and
meet complete strangers and have such a freakin' fantastic time had it not been
for bloggin'.  Wouldn't it be great if I could actually go to Denmark this coming
January and experience all that is the blue room!!! I really can't see me
wrangling that one.  Just a tad too out there for hubby to swallow.

And so my friends, I shall continue to blog, I get so much from it, even when I am
sad and weary I have online friends to offer cyber comfort and bloggy love!!!
Oh who am I kidding.. this is the only hobby I can comfortably do in
my ugly freakin' pj's with wine! Score!!!
How do you blog????

right now I'm sweaty blogging. I just worked out. But I was about to go shower when I noticed you had a new post, so I'm gonna shower THEN read more blogs. heehee

Maybe if we both go to Denmark then hubby will let you (seeing as you already know me and all).

lately, I've been blogging mid afternoon before the kids get home. It's becoming my "me" time because in the evenings it's all about them (and if I haven't had time to blog I get a little cranky)
The pics are beautiful so I can imagine your work hanging on your walls!

I can't even believe you tried to bring up life pre-iPhone. I totally broke out in a cold sweat.

I blog in my jammies when I get out of bed. I blog in my jammies before going to bed.... I read blogs in my spare time which will be ending if I get the job I applied for....
I was still funny before I started blogging, it's just that no one knew it except for my sister and hubby.

I like this post. I don't know what I would do without my iphone. I never thought I'd be a blogger, but here I am. Normally I blog at work..not much to do there.
