Well, it’s about time! My first post…YAHOO!

I’m FINALLY blogging!  I’m still tweaking quite a few things here, but it’s coming together and it feels good.  I had played around with a few different sites over the years, but nothing felt right.  I tried to think of “interesting” themes, designs, and things to write about…what I DID know was that I didn’t want to publish a blog full of rambling, meaningless jibber-jabber!  Then, I found myself getting too wrapped up and confused with the design aspect of the site.  Frustrated, I stopped trying for awhile.  But I kept reading and writing.

This past year, the more I read/researched various things about writers and others in the creative world, I began to notice a fascinating shift in the ways people publish work today.  The global growth of using the internet and social media have creatively made promoting and publishing work very quick and easy.  Within minutes, you write, you post , then seconds later, BOOM – your work is out there for the whole world to see…very exciting, yet also a bit daunting!  Even though I’d been writing poetry for awhile, the thought never occurred to me to use a blog for sharing my work.  So, thanks to the advice, input, and encouragement from many of my writer pals,  I’m now posting my first blog today. Cheers!

I’m learning as I go…my site still needs a little fine-tuning, so bear with me while I co-ordinate my “tabs” & various pages.  As a blog newbie, I absolutely welcome your comments for ways I can make my site more interesting or organized.  I’m looking forward to communing with others who share my passion!  Much more to come soon ~ Enjoy!
