Welcome to our other blog. I started my first blog, Dolls, Dolls, Dolls, at the beginning of May 2013 to teach myself a bit about blogging. I’d recently started maintaining a website for a local church in my town and I wanted to learn how to make it look better. I thought having my own blog would be a good idea as I could use it to try out different WordPress features without messing up their site. I chose dolls as my subject because doll collecting is my hobby and I thought it would be easier for me to write about it and learn the discipline of posting regularly.
Starting the blog had the added bonus that I started to read other blogs on Word Press and that has given me ideas. I hadn’t intended to start another blog but after a month I found that I wanted to write “off topic” so I created “My Other Blog” to do just that.
It has been four years now since this blog began and recently my sister Naomi has joined me in writing pieces for both blogs.
I’ll be writing about things in my everyday life, home, family, pets etc. I will probably rant about my dislike of reality TV shows and other issues that annoy me. I will also use these posts to try my hand at some of the Daily Prompt subjects as I did in my first post “Say Your Name”.
Naomi is just beginning to learn about blogging and has her own stories and opinions to share. We agree on many subjects but not everything but we do share a love of “old stuff” whether it be dolls and toys, household items, transportation or houses.
We will share photos of our collections, our holidays and outings in particular in our home state of Tasmania, Australia.
I’m looking forward to seeing where the journey takes us.
