My friend Tikeetha over at A Thomas Point of View tagged me to participate in the My First Post Revisited challenge.
This challenge was started by blogger Sarah Brentyn over at Lemon Shark.
Thank you Tikeetha for the nomination and Sarah for starting this challenge.
Here are the rules for this challenge –
No cheating. (It must be your first post. Not your second post, not one you love…first post only.)
Link back to the person who tagged you (thank them if you feel like it or, if not, curse them with a plague of ladybugs).
Other rules –
Cut and paste your old post into a new post or reblog your own bad self. (Either way is fine but NO editing.)
Put the hashtag #MyFirstPostRevisited in your title.
Tag…um…five (5) other bloggers to take up this challenge.
Notify your tags in the comment section of their blog (don’t just hope they notice a pingback somewhere in their spam).
Feel free to cut and paste the badge to use in your post.
Include “the rules” in your post.
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.
