Encouraged by Dawn, bloggers have shared how they morphed into their blog persona and it has been fun. So I guess it is my turn now. I had never heard of a blog until I attended the Girls Day in the Country at Nundle a few years back. After that I became a lurker, just wandering about and seeing what people were up to. At the following GDITC I was sitting at dinner on the Friday night with two ladies, introductions were made and I found out they were bloggers...Peg And Dale. Well, anyone that knows Peg knows that she is full of information...so she was pointing out bloggers and then she said...that is Chookyblue! OMG! I was like a teenager again who had found out the Bay City Rollers were in the room! (Sad time of my life I don't often discuss!) I am normally pretty respectful of personal space...but not this time as I dashed over and introduced myself to her. She was startled and obviously concerned I might turn all "stalker" on her, but was gracious and encouraged me into the world of blogging, ably supported by Maree and Peg! Then ensued a long conversation about names...my non blogging friends all joined in...there was lots of hilarity and false starts, but it was finally decided that I wear LOTS of cardigans...always have...love them...and must have one in nearly every color...so Cardygirl was born! I quite like it's neatness and often have people just calling me Cardy...I never had a nickname growing up...I have one now and I like it!
