A friend told me about the March Slice of Life Challenge which requires that you start a blog and post to it every day for the entire month. So I decided to try it. I’m not a great writer, but lately I’d been feeling that maybe I had something to say. And really, how hard could blogging be? Well, setting up the blog was harder than I thought. My first task was to come up with a great name for my blog, which I did; “Before I Forget”. Being in my early 60’s I’m beginning to forget things so this seemed very appropriate, it was kind of clever and I loved it. Unfortunately it had already been used. So now I was stuck thinking up a new name. You know how once you’ve got something set in your mind it’s really hard to think of something new. Well that’s exactly what happened, my mind was a blank, and when I finally did think of something, it was unavailable. Several days later I apprehensively typed in “My Choo Choo Train of Thought” and there it was, the name of my blog. A little juvenile, but hey, I’m an elementary school librarian. Next was choosing a theme. Do you know how many themes there were? It seemed like hundreds, and being a tiny bit obsessive I had to look at them all. I tried several, played with different photos across the top, and an hour or two later, settled on a theme called Kelly. It’s very simple and that’s probably best until I figure out what I’m doing. Wow! Who would have thought that it would take me so long just to set up the blog, never mind actually posting to it. So I feel like my first blog isn’t about the writing part of the blog, but about the blog itself. As for sharing my thoughts, there’s still tomorrow and the next day, and the next… Boy, March is a long month isn’t it?
