Let the Blogging Begin!

Blogging...  It isn't new to me.  I've been reading blogs for as long as they have been around.  Before the blog, was the diary.  Only diaries were private.  Or so young girls thought. Remember the diaries with the little gold locks and keys which girls wore around their necks?  Ha!  They were lulled into false sense of security that their mothers and little sisters wouldn't be able to read their diaries while they were at school.  I knew to HIDE my diary.   

I kept a diary from the tender age of 9 when my Grandmother insisted that I "write." I wrote letters, thank you notes, and diaries.  My mother, God rest her soul, would smoke carton upon carton of Virginia Slims to get me the end of the year bonus of a long slender bound calendar which I would use as my diary.  In her sunset years she told me that it was because of my need to write that she developed the COPD that was taking her life.  (My Mother was the Queen of Guilt.. God bless her.)

When I grew up and gave up foolish things, I began 'journaling.'  I wrote daily and kept expansive notes on books I read.  During a five year period I searched for "the Buddha Within,"  read every book available on relationships, took notes on trips to India and Pakistan, communicated with others about Goddess culture   and explored the psychic pathway.

So, here I am...  ready to learn the ins and outs of blogging.  I have a lot to tell and hope you will listen and leave me comments.    I've come a long way baby!


  1. I left a comment. :P Feel free to check out my blog if you like. I'm a geonovice, but hopefully I make up for it with enthusiasm. How long have you been caching?

  2. What a wonderful first blog post. I've added your blog to my RSS feed and will read every post. There may be days when you don't feel like putting anything down in digital ink, but, as I'm sure you remember from writing in journals, those are the days when you MOST need to put something out there, even if it is only a comment on the weather.

  3. Good first post.
    I used to write diaries and I still write them when I need to say something and I want to clarify my ideas. It is a good exercise for mind.

  4. Hey! Thank you for reading my blog and for the positive comments. This is a new format for me and a learning experience. I've spent the morning figuring out how to comment on my own blogs! I look forward to learning more about y'all through your blogs...
