I was actively blogging around 2005-2008. I found it a great way to meet people as well as keep in touch with friends who don't live near me. I've let my blog lapse and am not as active online but several of the authors I like are on live journal so I have an account here too.
I worked as an analytical chemist for many years and am now a stay at home mom. Wrangling kids, dogs and household is all I can squeeze in between reading copious numbers of books.
