Happy anniversary to me here at WordPress.com. I am glad to be here blogging and rolling with this fantastic service. Thanks to all who have connected with me here over the years. Keep on blogging good people!

A Thought About Blogging

Blogging Still RulesThere’s just something chill about blogging and looking at blogs on a desktop computer. Or even a laptop on a table. Viewing blogs on a tablet or a mobile phone isn’t the same. I find it easier to blog and to respond to your posts when the device is bigger. Creativity is enhanced from being at a stationary surface. I know I have mentioned this before but it’s still very much true. Give me the relaxation of being at a desk any day of the week.

Saying Farewell To Blogging

Don’t worry, I am not going anywhere but some folks choose to walk away from blogging or other things they love for various reasons. Sometimes it’s the need to do something new or to have a fresh start. Trust me I understand that. But I encourage people to think hard about doing that.

Making connections with people from all over the world is one of the reasons I stay on WordPress.com and the fact they do the behind the scenes stuff.

Blogging is an exchange of ideas and the telling of one’s story in real time and I really like that part of the whole thing. Deleting your blog takes courage and it’s sad when someone does it. So as I always say keep on blogging about everything and anything that you see in life and that inspires you. Also keep it fun and enjoy the process.

Something About Me

When you connect with me you get an authentic person who is kind, considerate (most times) and caring. I will always try to lift a person up. I am overly eager and a people pleaser. There will be no saying I am sorry for being nerdy, geeky and dorky. I am like a Labrador in that I am overly friendly. I will call you a friend even if we have met only a couple of times. The stuff I am passionate about like my heart is worn on my sleeves. When you get me you get someone who is flawed, faithful and awkward at times. Sometimes I am sad but always hopeful and positive. All I know how to be is myself and I hope that is enough for anyone who wants to be in my life. I will stand for the little guy and living in a just world for everyone. I am a believer in my higher power (God and that sort of thing) and its that faith that informs me to be who I am. I promote inclusion for others and hope the same for myself.

In short, what you see and read is what you get with me.
