It is indeed nice to sit in the sun, in my case late-autumn morning sunshine warming up my shins and fingers.
The personal blog is interesting ... it used to be that most blogs were personal with people writing about all sorts of things, then there was an increase in specialisation, then businesses and organisations got blogs, or people started blogs with the idea that they could make money from advertising, the commercialisation of the blog. And facebook and twitter kind've took over as the place where you put all the snippets of your life but you can't develop much of a thought process or discussion with those platforms.
So it'd be good to see a resurgence of personal blogs.
I think they are a little like a front garden full of plants (writing) that you think are pretty, intriguing, stylish. A place for people to leave comments as they walk past: "Oh, how lovely!" although sometimes people steal your plants or leave junk mail (spam). You swap plants with your neighbours, or bring plants back from a friend's house, each plant has a story. You need to work in your garden regularly to keep it looking beautiful but it's not a major work. You might remodel slightly if you think it's not reflecting your style anymore.
