And then I started a blog, and found myself sending my life out into blogosphere and beyond, and not keeping any records for myself. Ironic, isn't it? Since I've been blogging, I've written very little in my longhand journal except for lists of eccentric baby names on the weekends (and that's only because I can't be bothered getting out of bed to turn on the computer).
Only last week I woke up in the night and fretted gently about whether I'd be able to download 18 months of all this guff, and if so, how to keep it? On disk? Hah. As a book? I'd just never get around to it. Fret fret, zzzzzzzzzzzz.
Well, I'm gobsmacked to be informed (or requested, but who could refuse?) that the National Library is now archiving my blog. The nice people there have assured me that
the Library will take the necessary preservation action to keep your
publication accessible as hardware and software changes over time.
Gosh. I'm honoured. I never win lotteries. And now I can sleep deeply. And I love the fact that the NLA Web Archive is called PANDORA, because you know what was in the box she opened. Heh... I'm now one of those things ;)
