Sandra Bellamy first started to blog on the 7th of November 2010, when she launched her writing blog quirkybooks.wordpress.com. Initially Sandra started it as a way of practising her writing skills and to get an idea of what books to write and publish on her quirkybooks.net site. She never envisaged that she would interact with such diverse people from around the globe and make so many blogger friends. She often jokes that sometimes she speaks more regularly with her blogger friends in the virtual world, than she does with her friends in the physical world. She also says that some of her blogger friends seem to know and understand her better than the colleagues she works with in her day job, whom she sees daily. Sandra was thrilled to be able to meet a blogger friend in Person, for the first time, in September 2013.
