Inaugural Blog Post

I've been thinking of starting a blog for a while, but had the thoughts of what will I have to talk about? and who will actually take the time to read it? and who will find it? I have a handful of blogs I read faithfully and post on occasionally, but now I find I have some of my own things to say.

The straw that broke the camel's back straw was that I had a dream last night about having a wildly successful blog (not that the blogs success is important to me, however that is measured.) This lazy Saturday morning I woke up and made my coffee (made strong, with plenty of 1/2 & 1/2 and dark brown sugar), read a book (and finished it) while my cat sat on my feet (that may be because of the heating pad I had keeping my toes arm) and mulled it over. I've been seeing the "You are not an author on any blogs yet, create one now to start posting!" message on the Blogger Dashboard I use to follow my favorite bloggers and realized how easy it could be to set up. So here I am!

Just writing this intro, I've come up with ideas for posts, but I will warn you that I do not anticipate being an every-single-day poster. I won't always have something profound to say, and I won't always use perfect sentence structure or grammar (is that even the same thing?) though I will try to spell correctly and use proper capitalization. It is more important to me to convey the feeling behind the words and letters to my (as yet mythical) readers.

So those of you that stop by: welcome! Stay a while, feel free to comment--I won't judge on grammar and punctuation--but I would ask for civility and that you respect that this is my blog with my opinions and thoughts, though I am willing to hear people that do not agree with me 100%. I am not trying to sell anything or convert anybody to my way of thought, or change the world, just to share a bit of my life.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Warmest regards,

  1. It took me a little while to work up to a daily posting schedule. As for measuring success, I suppose there's GoogleAds. Also, Statcounter. :)
