100 up

Two years ago I had the thought that I needed somewhere to store the info & pics that I was accumulating during life with my Bromptons, Robinson & Ralph. An all-encompassing online system that would cater for a variety of media & be readily accessible by me? A blog system seemed to fit the bill – & maybe it would assist others too?

Accordingly, my blog named AussieOnABrompton.com was born & as of today, this posting is my 100th entry! It’s been a surprisingly pleasurable challenge, to gather material, decide what to do with it or what to say, & then concoct the blog posts. Of course, some posting ideas are difficult to convey but more often than not, it’s a challenge of what to leave out when trying to keep the blog “clean & simple” & not over-burdened with text or images?

I often wonder whether the blog is an effective storage/resource tool but every time I consider changes, I seem to impinge on my “clean & simple” preference – & I’m reminded of the backlog! That’s enough of this milestone malarkey; I’ve got a blog to run!

    Well done, Ian! I’m not sure how efficient a retrieval/information storage system a blog is, but am frequently surprised that I do refer back to previous posts for some reason.

    Regardless, it’s a pleasure to read your posts. Best wishes to you and Mrs. Aussie (and adding to the chorus hoping that she’s well on the mend by now).

      Ta Brommie, I agree that it’s a limited storage/retrieval system (although seemed a good idea at the time?). However, blogging has provided other unexpected benefits (eg contexts for the holiday snaps? personal contacts? writing outlets? “new job”? etc)
