Petrona is the Typepad featured blog for today, 2 March 2007. As Jenny strangely said when her father asked her what she thought of the new iron I bought the other day: "cool".
It does feel strange to have one’s blog reviewed through someone else’s eyes, that someone being (I presume) a Californian web technowiz, who has never met me and probably doesn’t have that many overlapping interests with a rapidly ageing English person. Here’s an extract:
Maxine Clarke is a mega-blogger. She authors seven blogs, mostly about her love of books, publishing, and the writing world. Petrona is her personal blog, which shares the life and thoughts of a mother of two living in the South of England. Maxine has been a science journal editor for most of her working life, but in reading Petrona it can seem like she was reborn once she became a blogger. It started as an experiment, but then became substantially meaningful to her, if not her favorite personal pursuit.
Thank you, Typepad. I feel very grateful and honoured to have been selected, especially as I did not nominate myself (as I see is encouraged, from the Everything Typepad page).
