A Gentle Word

I started blogging a few months after my second daughter was born in 2011….

Intimidated on how to start blogging, I made several appointments with the Great Google…and slowly made decisions…The first: where to host my blog?…The great decision maker that is me set up three blogs…eventually I decided to use the WordPress self hosting platform.

 If I had to do it again I would have started on this WordPress blog page….for two reasons: 1. ease of getting started

2. meeting people and having blog actually read for being a blog…

People do read what I write on myself-hosted blog…but it is not the same community of bloggers that I see on the blogs that started on these free platforms…mostly random people looking for a specific topic…

I have been forced to acquire blogging knowledge…and I am growing my readership…I was not certain at first that I wanted many people to read my blog…actually I was uncomfortable about strangers reading what I might say…almost two years later, I realize you blog readers are not strangers…you are neighbors…neighbors I have enjoyed meeting.

Today, I had to log into this account to leave a comment on another blog…and I realized I had nothing on here..just the HELLO WORLD! info….so I am not certain it is proper protocol but I may  join the conversation on WordPress for a while and see if I can experience the fun blog hopping on word press…

Happy Monday to you… beware I am coming to visit you! leave a comment so I can find you!
