I’m happy to kick 2011 to the curb. It was a difficult year for many of us. More disasters in one year than any other time in history–tornadoes, forest fires, hurricanes, floods, and let’s not even talk about the economy. But that’s all behind us now. 2012 is a clean slate. Think positive and attract positive! Wishing you all the best for 2012.
So…what is different about a blog than say a bulletin board, a LiveJournal, a Facebook page, or some other kind of forum? Why would anyone want to read my blatherings? I don’t see any friends pages or community-style trappings here. On LiveJournal you kind of feel like you’re in a village. You have other people all around. There are constant signs of them. They are in your friends list, they comment on your posts, there are communities made up of lots of members. Here on Word Press I could hear a pin drop because there doesn’t seem to be a soul around. I’m going to have to figure this out.
Christmas is almost over and, for me, that has always been a good thing. I can’t help it, but it depresses the hell out of me for the better part of a month. Then as soon as it’s over I breathe a sigh of relief, and I really look forward to the new year. I’m totally into the whole resolution thing and starting new projects, taking on new challenges, making lists of things I’m going to do, etc. It’s exciting! For example, this new Word Press blog thing. I think it’s going to work out. I hope so anyway, and I needed to learn more about Word Press for work anyway.
I don’t know what the hell I’m doing here, but I’m going to find out. This is my first post.
