This blog started 11 years ago tonight. I wanted a blog, but wasn’t sure why or what I’d write about. My first post was the equivalent of dipping your toe in the water.
It’s the 4th of July. I have to work on what is a hot and sticky day in Connecticut. There are a few thunderstorms on the radar, but not enough to really worry about. Helaine is packing. Twice, she’s had me get on the scale with a suitcase. Both were light (by airline limits that is). I haven’t done any packing yet. And, I still have a quiz to take to get ahead in my “Natural Disasters” class at Mississippi State.
My writing takes advantage of the powers of word processing. Everything is written, then rewritten more than once. I never did that while in school.
A finished blog entry is nearly always shorter than the first draft!
I like short paragraphs.
On an average day around 1,200 pages get read. If I talk about a storm headed toward New England traffic can increase tenfold or more.
More-and-more Facebook makes it difficult to get direct traffic. Do people start blogs anymore? Should I bother anymore? I wonder all the time.
I like it when you read my words. Ego? Probably. It does give me satisfaction to know I can share my thoughts.
This blog is always the truth, but seldom the whole truth. I hide bad news and shield friends and family. This is not TMZ.
Thanks for stopping by.
