If you are looking at my profile and reading through my blips, please do not star, favourite or comment on any from way back, say pre 2012. It was a very traumatic time and I don't want to be catapulted back to thinking about it randomly, even if you think you are being sympathetic. Read by all means, just keep it to yourself, please.
2010 and 2011 bad stuff happened,
2011 and 2012 good stuff happened.
Blip helped me through the bad times and brought me some good times, and now I have some good mates here.
In April 2012, I stopped working for a salary and now live mostly like a retired person and artist.
I have found blipping to be a great therapy. I have found that people are not at all what they at first seem to be, some are better and some are worse. I have bit by bit got back to some normality and calmness in my life. I am wiser and older now, and, strangely, happier than I have ever been (hence "confused contentment"). Because now I know how short life is, so I live it in the way that works for me, not by anyone else's rules.
Updated January 2013
Update June 2013 - I stopped blipping for a while because the attitude of the administration disappointed me so much that I needed to make a stand.
Update August 2019 - I am still here but not very often and mostly posting my art. I have deleted a lot of what was here before. Interesting to note how things change. Blipfoto was once a very big part of my life. I still have a soft spot for it and try to pop in and catch up from time to time but I can't keep it up as a daily ritual and it is less significant to me now.
