My First Post Revisited –

Published May 13, 2015 –

This is my very first post. What should I write that may be of interest to others?  Not much and then again maybe I do have many things I can write about.  I am an ordinary person, just like many others who live ordinary lives and do ordinary things.  I have many opinions about the everyday stuff, some important and some not so important.

The words I write, some readers may not like, others just will not read them, but others may find very interesting.  My words are my own and do not belong to anyone else.  The writing comes from me: my opinions, thoughts and ideas may change daily, over a longer period of time or never.

I will start soon writing about something and see where it goes from there.

In today’s post –

As you can see, that first post was quite boring and uninteresting.  I had an idea what I wanted to write about, and I had a goal to write 1 post each day for 1 year.  I achieved that goal and again decided year 2, I would write 1 post each day.  So far, so good as I near the completion of my year 2.

Many of you know me and my struggles, my strengths, my personality and my life.  In my writings, I try to be honest and not sugarcoat my posts.  I am human, I make mistakes and I have feelings and I in no way want to upset others – though I know I have – even as recently as the past couple of weeks.  I want to continue this blog because I have become friends with many wonderful people around the world.  But, there is a part of me that wants to give up and delete it all.  I remind myself the reasons for starting this blog to begin with, but I wonder at times if those reasons are still important.

Thank you again Tikeetha for nominating me for this challenge.  Although, I think my first post is stupid, I have come a long way in the past almost two years.  I have learned much about myself through this voyage called blogging.


I am nominating these bloggers to participate in this challenge.  You are in no way obligated to participate, but it would be fun and interesting to read your very first blog.

  1. Thank you for the nomination!

    Reading that first post, one line stuck out to me: “My words are my own and do not belong to anyone else.” There wasn’t much in that first post, but that is a theme that I think continues here to this day – your words, your life, your trials that are all your own.

  2. I remember writng my first post, I was terrified and it took me days with many many revisions, I felt like I was writing an essay and worried about structure etc and whether anyone would read it and if they did would they leave scathing comments. Was ai just setting myself up to be embarrassed and humiliated?! Yours is so natural and honest. We have both come a long way in the short time since we began blogging 👏🏻

  3. Many congratulations Terry! 😄 What a lovely idea this challenge is! And your 1st post was not bad at all! First steps are always so hard and it’s the courage to do them that counts in the end. You’ve come so far with your blog and your personal self and I’m so proud to have been a part of it for a little while now 😄 Have a lovely day! 😄

  4. I love it Terry and thank you for participating. Sometimes all we can do is figure out the direction we want to go without putting it out there which is what you did in your first post. You let us into your life and we feel like family now.

  5. It’s a perfectly respectable first post. Mine was so bad I deleted it years ago. lol I’m sorry to hear that you feel that you have upset someone with your writing. Please don’t let that discourage you from continuing to write so opening and honestly. We, (I), admire you so much for it.

  6. You really have come a long way since that first post!

    Also, thank you for the nomination! I haven’t gotten to any awards in so long…it’s so bad. But, seeing as how it could be years before I get to this, how about I just give you a link to the first post?


    (There is a post that says “posts to come” – but I’m breaking the rules here because it is seriously not a post, just a title without any content.)
