Why this blog? Hey, this is one nana who likes to keep up with change. I’ll try anything once. Twice if I really like it.
[Counting down: 35 weeks until the next president is sworn in and you-know-who is clearing brush in Crawford. Oh, happy day!]
Wrong of passage
I never had a bat mitzvah. So I’m marking this rite of passage—my first blog—with great reverence.
Today I am a blogger. Can the gold-plated pen-and-pencil sets be far behind?
When I began freelancing nearly 30 years ago, writing was its own excuse for being. You wrote, you pitched, you published. Sometimes they paid.
That was then.
Today, the experts (whoever they are) say a blog is de rigeur if I want to sell my writing.
Do I want to sell my writing? Jeez, does Howdy Doody have a wooden tush?
Speaking of tushes, I plan to shake mine, figuratively speaking.
Toward that end, I hope to entertain, inform, maybe even enlighten you.
Check back here weekly for posts on writing, family, travel, relationships, health, food, life’s absurdities and anything else that strikes my fancy.
And the award goes to Beth, Bad and Beyond
I want to thank the editors, publishers and agents who’ve encouraged (some would say, pushed) me to achieve this milestone.
My everlasting gratitude goes to Guy, the PC Guy, for his technical help.
Have a great week!
