Rambling On and On

Rather than talk to anybody in particular on the podcast this week, I’m talking to myself. I’m pretty sure this is a direct route to madness, but I’ll risk it.

I probably need to take a step back, don’t I – since returning to WordPress, I haven’t really talked about the podcast. I’ve been recording a podcast! I started in January, and have been putting a recording out roughly once a week – talking to fellow bloggers about where they are from, how they got started, what they write about – that kind of thing.

Anyway – this week’s episode is just me on my lonesome, rambling on for a little while. It’s surprisingly cathartic – I recommend it.

You can listen by visiting Anchor.FM, or if you have spotify, via the embed below (the podcast is available at Spotify, Apple, Google, and lots of other places – check out the Podcast page):

If you would like to be on the podcast, and tell the world about your blog, let me know!

Catherine Sanderson – Petite Anglaise

We have a rather special guest on the podcast this week.

She is one of the luminaries that helped forge the idea of posting an online diary or journal into the collective consciousness. If you were reading and writing blog posts in the mid 2000s, back when blogging started to become more mainstream, you might have followed any of a number of online journals – among them Dooce, written by Heather Armstrong, Belle du Jour, written by Brooke Magnanti, or Petite Angaise, written by a british girl living in Paris called Catherine Sanderson.

Of course back then we didn’t know the author’s names – shielded in wonderful anonymity, we knew only the name of their blogs.

I still can’t quite believe I’m writing this.

This week I had the opportunity to talk to Catherine Sanderson – to recount the story of how "Petite Anglaise" came to be, what happens when a blog becomes famous, how you go about turning a blog into a book, and why we know Catherine’s name.

p.s. although Catherine no longer publishes Petite Anglaise, you can still read the archived entries at petiteanglaise.com. The blog tells quite a story.
