A few days ago, I saw Ms. Huffington of The Huffington Post suggest to a talk show host that he should blog. Then she proceeded to explain that a blog is not perfect writing….it’s whatever comes to one’s mind. It’s supposed to be spontaneous. Okay! Now I get it. A spontaneous online journal of sorts…from my perspective.
When driving or otherwise occupied and away from the computer, my mind wanders about certain topics I might comment on. Hmmmm….teaching community college students, what it’s like to reach 60, semi-retirement, applying for social security, grandchildren, things that drive me crazy, why I keep wanting to start new things instead of get comfortable watching daytime TV in a recliner….on and on and on.
With a busy fall semester finished and holiday travels ahead, I ease into 2009 as an official blogger.
