Well here goes. I am officially opening my first blog – finally. What started as a simple “anyone can do it” project a few months ago became so complicated and bewildering that my whole personality began to change. My daughter was so concerned she gave me a book to study. (She gave it to me Father’s Day- that’s how long this has been going on!) I bought another book. I studied and read both books. I read more blogs than I care to remember. And then I woke up one morning with a whole new plan – an epiphany I had in the night. I called for professional help. Voila! In twenty-four hours I was up and blogging. This really is so simple that anyone can do it (with professional help.)
This will be a real work in progress, sort of a loosely constructed journal about whatever strikes our fancy for the day. We may comment about world news, local news, sports news, investment news and just about anything else that can help me meet a self-imposed deadline on a consistent schedule. These will be my observations and opinions about any topic. Hopefully, others will share their opinions with me, both pro and con, but if the cons begin to get too persuasive or numerous, I’ll do what all journalists do today – I’ll delete them – it is my blog.
We’ll link into other items of interest; promote stuff we believe in, catch camera shots of people and places that you may not have seen. We’ll try to post something new each day, though that may be a little ambitious, we’ll try. I have a few gems I’ve saved for this occasion. I’ve never lacked for an opinion – often incorrect, but never in doubt. What a deal. I can just post anything I feel like at any time that suits me – I’m already feeling better just thinking about how therapeutic this is going to be.
