Writing about Writing, Blogging about Blogging

Maddie snoozing atop a pillow

If you are like me, you don’t consider yourself to be just a writer. You are a whole host of other things as well. We are Moms, dads, cooks, wage earners, retired, hobbyists, you name it. We are all so many things in our daily lives that it beggars the imagination.

What I am not is an IT professional. About 12 years ago when I first had a blog to promote my website from which I hoped to sell lots of my one-of-a-kind jewelry creations (sadly that didn’t happen), it was simple. You went to WordPress, decided on a name, followed a few easy to understand steps, and voila! You had a blog. It was free (well, it still can be), pretty basic and only slightly customizable. That latter might have been more due to my lack of knowledge than anything else.

It appears that it is not that easy these days. You have to buy the domain name for your blog as if it were a website. If you don’t buy it from the host of your blog (which unfortunately I did not), that creates a set of issues you need to overcome. I overcame them (mostly by starting completely over), large headache later, and here I am.

Sadly, this is not a tutorial about how to accomplish what is needed. You can find plenty of more or less understandable information about this online. I know this firsthand. Alas. What this is, is more of a rant and possibly not the best way to launch a new blog site.

I can write. I love to write. The writing comes fairly easily to me. I wish that were true of dealing with modern technology.

In any case, I’d like to introduce you to my new blog. In the days to come I will discuss my novel and it’s soon to be completed sequel. There are also a couple other books I am compiling from short stories and poems. But I won’t limit myself to just writing about writing or my own books. I want to write about life and the living of it. I want to write about dreams and aspirations. I want to write about what makes us tick, what delights us, and what could be better in the world. But also what’s right with the world.

I have a lot to say. Who doesn’t? So let’s get started. And thanks for stopping by.

    Courtesy of Shutterstock Winter is stubborn Holding tightly to the cold Spring waits patiently I do wonder if spring will ever actually get a grip on things. It’s snowing again today. Right now as I am writing this. It’s not heavy, but it’s sticking. I guess the last couple days were cold enough to cool… Read more

    Courtesy of eonline I have never liked wearing bras. Even as a young woman, I found them uncomfortable and difficult. All that was available when I was young was traditional bras with back closures. They were almost all padded to some extent … and pointy. Not at all natural looking.

Maddie can usually be found between us and under the covers. But not Miss Fuzzy Pants. By preference, she will sleep in the pet bed on the floor… Read more
