Diving In! November 12, 2008

I have been exposed!  Yes, I would like to introduce myself, I write under the name Natalian and I am a ‘Blog Recluse’!

I started blogging as a way to start writing again and unearth the creativity that got buried somewhere inbetween disposable nappies and “Spiderman“.  I have enjoyed my little moments of blogging but I have realised that I have not really been participating in the ‘Blogosphere’.  Maybe I have been too scared to put myself out there and thought I would get nasty little comments about my horrendous spelling and grammar! 

 I came across Charlotte’s Web by chance when out of desperation I typed “South African living in Germany” in my search engine and found a writer who not only gave me an insight into the scary prospect of living as an expat in Germany but also someone who I enjoyed reading.  I was so excited to be tagged by Charlotte to do a meme and then I realised I couldn’t actually participate!  I don’t have 10 commentators on my blog! Oh the shame! I have been standing at the waters edge, dipping my toe in every now and then, while watching everybody else have a good time! 

Well ‘Blog Friends’ whoever you may be, whoever reads my blog and to those I am yet to meet, stand back I’m diving in!  Thanks Charlotte for the push!

  1. Oh, I am pleased you’re diving in. The water’s not as cold as it looks. And blogging is wonderful for unleashing creativity – it has got me writing again, and that’s about the best possible thing that could happen.

    Welcome and I hope all your blogosphere experiences are good. If anyone’s nasty, just delete them!

    Thanks for vising my site Natalian, and welcome to blogging! I have just added you to my blogroll.

    Charlotte’s Web is one of my favorite blogs, too!

    Very pleased to meet you too. Charlotte is one of my favourite bloggers so you come highly recommended. Will be adding you to my blog-reader so I can follow your posts. Also interested in the German connection so am enjoying what I’ve read so far about your experiences there. But I gather you’re back in SA for a while?

    Thanks Lizzy! Same here!

    Hi Pete! I am still here on African soil! This year has been a bit of an emotional tug of war with regards to staying in South Africa or starting life as an expat in Germany. So I am still standing with my feet in both camps at the moment.

  5. Good for you! I had the exact same problem. Hey, I’m a German expat too.

    Thanks for visiting Honeypiehorse! I have enjoyed reading your site as it has provided me with more insight into potentially living as an expat in Germany – with kids!
