Filofax Blog of the Week: LJ's Blog of Stuff

My 'Blog of the Week' feature introduces a different Filofax blog each week. 

This week, Lindsay guides us through LJ's Blog of Stuff.

When did you start your blog?

October 23rd 2011.

What were your reasons for starting it?

I started the blog mainly because I decided to take the 101 Things in 1001 Days challenge and needed to be accountable - you can see more about the full reasons in this post.

Which post has enjoyed the most pageviews?

All the ones that involve my filofaxes have had more pageviews than any others (thanks to Philofaxy and Steve and all the wonderful filo fans who visit). But the clear winner is this one when I was having a bit of an issue with my new setup.

Which post is the one you’re most proud of?

It just took me a lot of thinking to decide, but then I remembered this post. It's not so much that I am proud of anything that I did in this post, but am so proud of my little chap so intently playing with his Filofax - which, by the way, is next to his bed most nights and no doubt he will be needing more paper soon to go in it as he'll be running out of space :o)

What has surprised you since you started blogging?

The number of people who have visited from Philofaxy and left comments - I really love getting comments on my posts. They give me more ideas for things I can try in my filos, and encourage me to carry on blogging as we all know that most friends and family just don't get it, so it is nice to know that there are all these other amazing filo fans out there.

In one sentence, how would you describe your blog to a Filofax user who hadn’t seen it?

It's just a bit of random FF stuff with pics, cries for help and filo worship :o)

Finally, what one piece of advice would you offer to other Filofax bloggers, based on your own experience?

To someone who is unsure about whether to start blogging because they're worried that friends and family may see it, or because they don't feel confident enough for other people to see their thoughts - go for it!!! I felt like that when I started and now as soon as I have done a post I link it on my Facebook status. Most people don't even look, but I haven't had any negative feedback and everyone now knows that I am obsessed with my filos and stationery, and there is nothing wrong with that.

My thanks to Lyndsay for participating.

If you own a Filofax blog and would like it to be featured in this series, please complete the questionnaire.

Thanks for featuring my blog :o) The answer to the penultimate question looks odd though, it is the same as the one before :o) It is quite possible that I did write the same thing twice though (ctrl c ctrl v - so easy to do by accident). LJx
