Hello and thanks for reading my very first post on my very first blog. In the words of someone who used to be famous: “Who am I? What am I doing here?” Well… I think that’s what this blog will ultimately be about. So, without further… (you know…)
Just a bit of background… I’m a forty-something, married mother of two living in a development referred to by the locals as “Wellington” — hence the name of the blog. I was inspired by Alistair Cooke’s series on the BBC Radio called “Letter from America”. I spent some time living in London when I was in college and I loved listening to this program, or should that be “programme”? I love a lot of English things — too many to list here, but I’m sure they will come up from time to time.
I decided to start this blog for two reasons — the first is that I wanted some experience with blogging tools. I’ve been working in web-related activities ever since the web was invented (by Tim Berners-Lee, not Al Gore), but I never worked with blogging tools, so I want to give that a try.
The second reason is that I, like so many other bloggers, am a frustrated writer. I love to write, but I don’t really know what to do about it. I thought about journaling, but it seemed too much like singing in the shower. If I keep all my writings to myself, then no one will ever appreciate them, learn from me, agree with me, or even argue with me.
So, with that, I will close this post. Here’s hoping that someone out will stumble upon this and engage with me.
