This post was originally a short free online Podcast giving the story of how and why I began blogging and Podcasting:
Here in text form is the story as I remember it:
I started blogging in 2006. It was a favour to my daughter Elly.
BarCamp came to Ireland & Cork that September and Elly needed a case study for her talk, so who better for a guinea pig than ‘mammy’. I was given three weeks to set up and learn to blog and also Podcast. All this was done at a distance since Elly lived 125 miles away from me.
I didn’t go to Cork but my blog, my face and my voice did.
I sat at home and followed live blogging of the event – another ‘newbie’ for me.
I am still learning in January 2012!
