On June 1st, 2006 I penned my first post.  It was a pretty anticlimactic beginning.  I had spent days choosing the template and thinking wondrous thoughts and anticipating my June 1 starting date — and when the time came, I had nothing to say.  (I know some of you are boggled by that thought.)

My first post:

My Own Blog

Today I decided I would start my own blog. All week long while thinking about this I had a dozen or so witty things to say. Now here I am and my mind is blank. Blank. Blank. Blank. Sigh. These are the things that make up the typical days in my life.

The comments:

Terrace said…
YAY! Hopefully another helpless blog addict is on her way

Doug said…
I’m curious. Had you blogged before and this is the first that’s yours or are you new to blogging?

New — new, new, new, new, new — doesn’t it show?

I had been reading Terrace’s blog for years (still do) and she is essentially responsible for me starting my own blog — the pusher who began my addiction, as she clearly admits! And Doug holds the distinction of being the first stranger to comment on my blog.  I am glad to claim him now as friend.

Also, my first blog was on Blogspot.  The title was, “A Day in The Life,” and I had my template custom made.  It’s still up.  Pop on over and take a look.  Oh how times change!  LOL!
