Category Archives: Tantrums with Technology!

Dipping the toe…


For as long as I can remember I have had so much to say to the World and genuinely believed that some people may want to listen!

Today I finally took the plunge….well, truthfully, I didn’t so much ‘take the plunge’ as find myself being unceremoniously pushed into the world of Blogging. (Only, knowing my luck, this unfamiliar word has some other, darker, urban dictionary meaning and I have just used it in my first ‘Blog’….Eeeek!).

I racked my brain for several hours this evening trying to think of the most catchy, edgy, and appropriate name for my Blog’s URL. The technologically ungifted half of my brain believes this will be emblazoned across the Web for all eternity, so I had to get it right.

I thought long and hard and came up with over 50 pretty acceptable choices but, as luck would have it, I found out that I’m not one of an elite few to discover Blogging, and have not just thrust myself into cyber minor-celebrity with my own page on the Web. NO! It transpires that literally millions of people have beaten me to it, to the point that I genuinely believe that even some household pets have their own Blog!!!

Well, the upshot if this revelation was that all the ‘catchy’ and ‘edgy’ URLs were taken……even (would you believe it?)….’Carrot’ and bloody ‘Cabbage’!!! (Don’t ask……I got desperate!). So, after riffling through the salad drawer of my fridge-freezer (and a period of bitter disappointment), I settled on ‘MindMural’……surprisingly creative and, dare I say it: ‘edgy’. I can only assume that the previous owner of this inspirationally named URL recently died in order for me to have it! Seriously though…..’Cabbage’?!!

So I would like to take this opportunity to thank the late Blog owner of ‘MindMural’….I will do my best to make the most of this beeline to the rest of humanity (and their household pets).

For now though, I must to bed!
