Two years ago today I registered the domain kitta.net and gave birth to (if you will) this site you’re at right now. It’s been a fun few years, the opportunities I’ve had, the people I’ve met, the things I’ve learnt, the amount of times people have emailed me asking “is the little red monkey like, a real monkey” have all been interesting.
Things have changed, my blog entries certainly have become much more substantial, my design has defiantly improved – to the point where I was nominated for ‘Best Designed Weblog’ – and I’m currently writing a book on the topic of blogging (a novel).
Over the last two years you’ve probably noticed that most of my entries have a sarcastic feel to them, this is because I like finding humour in things, my back injury for instance. Even though it’s painful and I have days when frustrated to the point that I want to cry, writing a funny open letter addressed to it helps ease the frustration. I’ve received emails from people (male, female, young and old) thanking me for blogging, they tell me about how they were having a bad day until they read a certain entry in my blog and it cheered them up immensely.
I started my blog because I wanted a creative outlet, a place to put the words that dance around in my head when I should be sleeping, and contrary to poplar belief I didn’t start it because I think I’m hot shit, I want attention and I’m a fucking Barbie that needs validation about my looks. Anyone who’s been with me since the start would know that.
People sometimes ask me how long I’ll keep blogging and to tell you the truth I don’t know. I blog because it’s relaxing to sit down at the end of a day and write about something I’ve seen, done or heard about. I blog because it’s fun and the day it stops being fun is the day when I’ll stop blogging (don’t worry, it’s still fun).
I want to thank Rich, who’s not only my friend that I can geek out with and talk hardware, but also the person who hosts my site. I’d also like to thank you for reading.
