I began blogging on January 1st of this year. It wasn’t a New Year’s resolution. It wasn’t something that I had debated about for a long time. I didn’t even have a topic idea for my first post. It was an impulsive decision on my part, based on the fact that my son, who has his Ph.D. in Computer Science and experience setting up a WordPress website was visiting. I had an in-house expert to help me with my questions, and I had a lot of questions. (Thank you, Robin!)
I knew I wanted my blog to be running-centered, but I also knew that I didn’t have enough expertise to post workouts and running tips. I wanted to write about the things I think about during my long solitary runs. My interior monologue. If my thoughts are amusing enough to keep me entertained for two, three, four hours at a time, they should be fascinating to other people, right?
I gathered my thoughts on gratitude, wrote an article, and posted it. Some of my friends and family read it, liked and commented, and I was on my way.
One of the unexpected pleasures that came along with blogging is the number of diverse and interesting people I have met because I decided to be a blogger. I had no idea that blogging is so social.
I have learned so much from reading others’ blogs. I did not know the depth of wisdom and insight available for free. Blog posts have made me spit out my coffee laughing and rush for a tissue to hold my tears.
As I look back over my posts, there are some that I am very proud of and some that make me think I have missed the mark. Some posts have said exactly what I wanted to say, and some make me feel like I should try a do-over. Does anyone reading this feel the same way?
So now, I have a favor to ask of you – show me your best blog post. I want to see the posts that are special to you. Put it in the Comments section at the bottom of this page. Here is what I would like you to do:
- Please post a very brief description of your blog so that everyone reading the comment knows what your blog is all about.
- Include a link to your favorite post. Or your favorite recent post. Or a post that you don’t like very much. Or all of the above.
- Check out as many of the links posted here as you can. Maybe you will find a new blog you love or maybe you will find some new followers. Comment on at least one other blogger’s post.
- Please reblog this or share on social media if you are comfortable doing that.
It is my intention to read all of the links posted here. Maybe not today, but soon. I am stepping out on a limb, hoping to try something new, looking forward to reading your best!
I will start off the conversation. Here is one of my favorite posts: https://meditationsinmotion.wordpress.com/2018/06/14/drink-the-wine-eat-the-cake/
And here is one that I want to do over:
