M: How are you today?
NB: Yes. See, I am lonely most of the time. Natasa blogs so rarely.
M: Why do you think this is the case?
NB: She says she is busy, with the classes and everything. She says blogging is her hobby, she would love to have more time for me, but...
M: But, you don't think that's the truth?
NB: No, see, I know the woman. Her main problem is the lack of ideas. She doesn't know what to write about. Or, rather, she does know, but she doesn't think her readers will find it useful.
M: She is a perfectionist?
NB: Dunno. I'm not a psychologist.
M: What does she blog about?
NB: Mostly TEFL and technology...
M: ... and the meaning of life?
NB: No. That's me. See, I am a poet. And a great storyteller. Every now and then I sneak something in when she is not looking. Something completely useless for other teachers, but fun.
M: Like this?
NB: Don't tell her.
M: You are almost three years old.
NB: Ah, yes, the rebellious years. Because one human year is like five bloggy years.
M: So that makes you fifteen?
M: How does it feel to be fifteen?
NB: I feel that the time has come for me to be who I am.
M: And who are you, really?
NB: Don't know. Still searching for answers.
M: Your birthday is next week.
NB: Yes. I was born the same day as Natasa. Won't tell you how old she will be or she'll shut me down.
M: Are you preparing anything special for that day.
NB: Yes. But it is a secret.
M: Let's keep it that way. Now, why should teachers blog in the first place? What advice would you give to new blogs?
NB: Blogging is good for you. We wrote about it here.
M: What's your favourite post?
NB: Oh, that's easy. Murphy's Law for EFL Teachers. It was my idea.
M: How would you describe your relationship with Natasa for the past three years?
NB: There were ups and downs. And times when she was "too busy to blog". But she loves me. I am very important to her. I know that and that's what really matters.
