Today marks the anniversary of my first blog post. It is hard for me to believe. It has been an amazing ride and I have met some fantastic people, from all corners of the world, along the way. I learn something new daily… and they say you can’t teach old dogs new tricks. I beg to differ.
I'm fairly certain I chose baby names, when I was expecting Jordan, easier than I chose the name of my blog. As part of the process, I needed to determine the subject matter and ambiance I wanted to convey.
Aside from being a fairly decent cook, no one in the family is starving, I have no expertise worthy of devoting an entire blog. Although I have strong political views, this blog will never be used as a political platform and I rather doubt I’d have many visitors if I wrote about paralegal studies or workers’ compensation premiums.
Finally, I decided there were plenty of how-to blogs with far more creative and talented writers. What I do best is laugh at myself. Although I am not an expert in any one area, I am interested in experiencing new opportunities, stretching my wings, and learning.
So the business plan, so to speak, was to write about a wide variety of topics, to keep the ambiance light and cheerful, and to admit my shortcomings (which incidentally gives me plenty of material about which to write). After playing with the dictionary and thesaurus for a while, A Musing Potpourri was christened.
Life can be a struggle at times and boring at other times. A Musing Porpourri is meant to be a fun, carefree oasis where you can relax for a few moments during your day. I hope when you visit you always feel welcome and comfortable. From time-to-time I hope I make you laugh and I guarantee there will be visits that make you scratch your head and think, What was La thinking?!
Thank you all for your encouragement, your generosity, and most of all for your friendship. You all mean the world to me.
Now, let’s have a giveaway! Woo-hoo!
