So...last night I set up the blog. Last night, I also dreamed about the blog. Bizarre.
But - I managed to do a little customising...in spite of the fact I have to remind myself where to find the blog, because 'Squidge's scribbles' doesn't come up on a search of Google.Did I just chose a daft name for a blog? Maybe - but as I operate on the Word Cloud (a writing community run by The Writer's Workshop) as 'Squidge', I thought it would link in nicely to my electronic persona there.
Why 'Squidge'? Well, at eighteen, I was a young leader with the Guide Association. At camps, we often had special names that tied in to the theme of the week; my first camp as adult leader had a woodland theme. I was Squirrel.
It didn't last long. Very quickly, the girls shortened it to 'Squidge' and it stuck - for the next twenty years. Although I've since left guiding, I like the name, so I resurrected it for my tentative forays into the writing community.
Don't think you'll ever see it on a book cover though - I'll stick to my real name if ever that happens.
And if you've managed to find me - do say 'hi!'
