In 2011, I set up a Google account under the name jenny_o so I could comment more easily on other people's blogs, and with the account came the option to start a blog - but commenting was all I wanted to do - or had the time for - then.
But over the years, the thought of writing kept nagging at the back of my mind ... and some nice people encouraged me ... and then somehow I was seriously considering it ... and then I was thinking up a name for "my blog" (how did that happen again?) ... and opening the Blogger Dashboard ... and ticking some choices ...
And here I am - Procrastinating Donkey.
"Procrastinating" because it's one of my less lovely but well-known attributes in real life. And maybe it will serve as a warning that posts may not be regular. And "Donkey" because a jenny is a she-donkey, and I do have a soft spot for donkeys (and share their tendency to be stubborn, which is really more of a refusal to enter into something we know is beyond our capability. Or just contrariness. Some days it's not clear.)
Like a donkey, I am short and kind of round. Unlike a donkey, I like to make stuff, read, and eat chocolate. I'm hoping that I'll learn some new things here.
