#BEDN 1 > Introductions

posted in: Personal | 12

Well good morning and welcome to Blog Everyday in November here on Splodz Blogz! I have decided to take part in this blogging challenge set by Rosalilium to a) see if I can actually manage to keep up with the challenge and b) to hopefully inspire me to write about (and photograph) some different and interesting topics this month.

The first topic we’ve been given is, naturally, “introductions”. So hello there, I’m Zoe and I’m the person behind the posts here on Splodz Blogz. This is me…

Olympic Torchbearer in Lincoln, 27 June 2012

Splodz is the name that my sister gave me when we were kids. I’m not quite sure how it got from “Zoe” to “Splodz” but it did, and it stuck. It’s not something any friends have called me, but it is now the name I use online for all social media.

My mantra is Life is all about the journey, I want to make the most of every step and hopefully encourage other people to do the same. I do this by trying to live each moment fully, and with a smile on my face. It doesn’t always work out quite right (when it doesn’t that is character building!), but I do try to live by that statement.

As part of our introduction we’ve been encouraged to share something that long-time readers may not know. As I talk personally on Splodz Blogz all the time I’m not sure if that’s possible, so let me do it this way… which of these three things do you think is a lie?

1) I once went ice skating with Prince Charles

2) I have abseiled down a harbour wall into a sailing boat

3) I bit a hospital porter when being taken to the operating theatre

I genuinely hope that you enjoy what you read here throughout November, and that we’ll be able to chat and connect over some of the topics we’ve been set to feature. See you again tomorrow!

If you want to take part in the BEDN challenge then head over to Rosalilium for the details, including the daily prompts. I look forward to connecting with you during the month.

  1. Hello! Welcome to #BEDN

    I’m really hoping the Prince Charles fact is true. That would be brilliant. But I just can’t imagine him ice skating.

  2. No 1 is a lie?!! Love your positive attitude – hopefully it will rub off on me a bit – I’m a natural pessimist!

    • Thanks. Much of the time, to be completely honest, my “positive attitude” is really hard work! But I try.

  3. And you ran with the Olympic torch by the looks of things! Looking forward to reading more…

  4. Please tell me number 3 is true, I want to hear that story!!

  5. Ha, I love this post – and I’m a day behind so I will have a sneaky look to see which one is true. I love that your blog has loads of different subjects, it feels a bit like mine. Glad to see I’m not the only person blogging about everything!

    There was a kids tv program on when we were young and the monster was called splodge – I felt it necessarily to adapt the name for you! Can’t remember what the prog was now.

  7. OK… LOL Zoe… I haven’t looked ahead to see the answer… I’ll guess… Number 1 is a lie.
