About the Blog
I’ve been blogging since 2003, and at worldwidewatercooler.com since March 2005. Most of my archives are online.
This site chronicles a bunch of my life, beginning in a time before blogs were considered “part of the media.” It includes posts from a great deal of my misspent youth, through some dating adventures, meeting my husband, traveling the globe, having a kid, and relocating from Canada to the UK. In-between there is a lot of food, fun, photography, and utter nonsense.
This blog still isn’t “part of the media.” I have done some solicited product reviews and played with ads, and ultimately decided they’re not really right for me. I primarily use this site as a place to play with ideas, keep up with old friends, and perhaps make some new ones.
Do we still do that? Make friends from blogging? I hope so! (ps. lovely to see you, your hair looks really nice today!)
Why WorldWideWaterCooler? I read the phrase somewhere, and loved it. I’m sorry I didn’t make a note of where I found it – if I remembered I would credit the clever monkey who coined it. If I stole it from you – sorry, and thanks!
The water cooler idea pretty much sums up my attitude toward blogging. Originally, the concept was that if I were in a typical office, the things I posted would be what I’d normally talk to colleagues about around the water cooler.
Welcome. Can I get you a glass?
