This being my first post, I think I should explain a few things. First, I have been on this site for about two weeks now. I have struggled a bit with getting a ‘theme’ in place that would allow me to do the things I wanted to do without being too cumbersome. I wanted bright, but not flashy; reserved, but not sedate or dull. I needed formatting for text mostly while leaving a few options for images, and a single sidebar. I think I have something here that will work well—only time will tell.
If you have happened by this blog before now, you will have seen it in an unfinished state. I published the front end in several different themes and formats over the past week or so. I know some folks have seen it in various stages of illumination and disrepair. I hope it didn’t put you off. In retrospect, I should have kept it private until I was happy with it, or at least mostly so. Anyway, my apologies for the lack of foresight.
After this initial post, I have a couple of short biographical things that I will post. Sort of a bio-sketch in two parts. I am not “proud” of my history, but it is the only one I have. I think it will put some things in perspective for folks who are interested in knowing a little about the bloggers who write these things.
I should also acknowledge that I tend to be verbose at times. Some of my posts will be tagged as “Long Reads,” perhaps most of them will. I tend to express myself in words not images. I let the words tell the story and let the reader form the images. There are some notable exceptions to this. One is art. No words can do justice to a work of art. Folks want to know what you see and feel, but they need to see the reference point to understand. I have some images for those times. Another exception is food. Since we eat with our eyes first, it is always nice to be able to show what a particular item or dish looks like when complete. I am certain that there will be other times when I will use images as well. Just don’t be surprised to see a lot of text..!!
Finally, please feel free to comment. I encourage you to do so anytime you want to be heard. Thumbs up or down, yes or no, like or not…..or maybe you just want to add something to a subject, it doesn’t matter. Comments welcome.
Keep on Bloggin’
