My dear friend Erika, from her blog, Author Erika Kind, has asked me to take part in this challenge by sharing my first blog post.
This actually is a great idea because it shows how we have evolved with our blogs over time. I had no idea where I was headed with my blog when I started writing last year. All I knew was that it was called Silver Threading and would deal with my journey into retirement.
I actually thought I would talk about gardening in the beginning. Look how far I have evolved since then. Now, I am writing my first novel! I belong to a fabulous community of writers that I enjoy each day. Life is good!
Here are the rules:
- Copy-paste, link, pingback or whatever way you want to, your first post.
- State what type of post that was. E.G. Introduction, Story, Poem
- Explain why that was your first post.
- Nominate 5 other bloggers. Five because I know the pain of opening a lot of tabs at once.
Here are my 5 nominees:
I titled my first post, “Welcome,” and it was published on March 26, 2014.
Happy Spring to everyone, even though it does not seem to be spring yet in many parts of the United States. Here in Pensacola, Florida it has been a cold, rough winter. We had many cloudy, damp, cold days with winds coming out of the north, instead of the warm tropical winds from the south. I was able to grow a winter garden though and that was a fun attempt. My cabbages, broccoli, and kale grew quite well in the protection of my shed and neighbor’s fence.
Here is a picture of my grandchildren with the last of the cabbages. Gardening in this part of the Gulf Coast is a challenge in the summer. I hope to share some of my tricks and mistakes along the way so others and can enjoy the peace of gardening in Northwest Florida. Please follow my gardening saga and share your tips and tricks that you may find helpful to the rest of us struggling gardeners out there. Along the way, I want to share my other interests such as crocheting, jewelry making, and reading, crafting, baking, and weight loss and exercise tips. Join me in my journey into retirement as I silver thread my way to a more fulfilling lifestyle.
It is only proper for me to say thanks for joining me on my fabulous journey. I couldn’t have done it without all of you!
And, if you don’t want to take part in the challenge that works for me too! Let’s have a glass of wine instead!
