Aaaargh, the agony


Okay, so here I go with a Brand New Blog in a Brand New Site and still I am racked with the usual insecurities. I have spent the past two hours sifting through hundreds of blogs, looking at others for inspiration. I am such an L-plater (learner). The world of blogging is quite intimidating for a wee minnow like myself, currently splashing about in a swollen pond of ... forget the tadpoles - thrashing TOADS!! On a positive note however, I've logged a lot of ideas into my "let's work it out later" mental folder (that does have creaky hinges by the way). Despite being such an ignoramus re blogging, I might as well get started today & work it out as I go along. I have to say however that I am quite envious of some of the beautifully designed blogs I have seen, namely http://www.frenchtoastgirl.com/weblog/blogger.shtml. In fact, this is a fine example of my lack of experience. I am sure there must be a way that I can just type in the words, "French Toast Girl" & be directed straight to the site... Where is that book that I need so badly? Something like, "Blogging for Complete Boobs/Bunnies/Dummies" etc.


The next thing is, Happy Readers, that you are going to wonder Why I've named my blog 'The Daily Twinkle'. Well, to be honest, my other title, 'Cake for Breakfast' was already in use. In fact, I am going to check it out Right Now. Back in a mo.... http://cakeforbreakfast.blogspot.com/ Ha! There it is. I can hardly believe that someone else on this planet has had the exact same thought as me.... Hmmm.

hey Jen
great blog. Where else do toads come from other than tadpoles? we'll have to use cyberspace to keep in touch instead of yelling over the fence.

Jen, still interested to know where the "Daily Tinkle whoops Twinkle" came from. Also read "boobs/dunnies and bummies"! Speed reading isn't all it's cracked up to be. Keep up the good work.
