What used to be: I was an English teacher for some thirty years and thoroughly enjoyed the job. Then I became a webmistress and enjoyed that thoroughly.
I started blogging at the same time as I found out that I had breast cancer and I must say that I enjoyed learning something new, it took my mind off doctors, radiation therapy, operations and the likes.
While I was going through radiation therapy, I set up a blog in French in which I kept a journal of my radiation therapy days. I haven’t written a word in there since 😉
I found a lot of help at MandarinDesign, a site I visit almost daily to figure out everything about the appearance of a blog.
I first used Blogger and then moved to WordPress, which I find easier to tweak than Blogger.
What about now?Now, I am retired and enjoy this thoroughly. People ask me what I do with my days. Well, weather permitting, I take my camera, a nice Lumix FZ8 that I bought, following the advice of Brenda, go out and shoot. I try to walk a couple of hours daily, it’s healthy, I enjoy walking and it makes up for all the time I spend in front of my computer. Sometimes, I wonder if I shouldn’t rename Blogging in Paris Walking in Paris.
Then, I have to admit it, I spend a lot of time processing my photos and uploading them on flickr , organising them into sets and admining my groups. I have become some sort of a “flickrholic”, I guess.
I keep two blogs of my own
Photo-Blogging in Paris, here
Vieux, C’est Mieux !
Two and a half years ago, I kept a journal of my radiation therapy at RadioTBlog
For one whole year, I posted one photo a day at a photoblog but it disappeared into thin air because of database problems. I am currently trying to rebuild it at My Daily Snap … revisited where it’s growing at the rate of one photo a day.
