This is my first post on my first blog. As such, I’m treating it as a trial run.
My first thought is the awareness that this will be PUBLIC, so it needs to be good enough to read without immediately causing eyes to glaze over and drool to form on saggy bottom lips, all around the globe. That challenge is somewhat daunting.
Then again, maybe I’ll just have fun most of the time, and only occasionally try to pull out something really good.
I’ve chosen WordPress as my blog service for several reasons, including the humour and humanity built into it. Uncharacteristically for me, I did not read the “fascinating terms of service” before signing up but was at least tempted to. I’ve also chosen their premium (paid) service so that I can post videos and have more storage space.
My first blog project will be to post some highlights of our Christmas 2012 trip to New Zealand, and our January 2013 trip to Belgium and the UK. There is some video from that I want to post but that may take (quite) a bit of editing first. In the meantime we have plenty of photos, stories, and entries from Mereem’s and Jean-Luc’s journals to post.
I hope that you enjoy reading at least some of these blogs and that you feel to comment…constructively, of course.
So, let’s go!
