A new blogger’s learning curve is steep and caution is one’s best guiding consideration. The opportunity to write without an editor, to choose what one wants to write when he or she wants to write it, to apply grammatical correctness or not or simply to rant is my motivation for blogging.
Over my relative recent blogging experiences, I have come up with the following three cautionary statements:
In 2007 I was introduced to blogging in a graduate class and my assignment was to post while on a study tour in Rome. I naively thought that once I was finished, somehow the blog would disappear into a black hole in Cyberspace or the “host” would simply delete it when no more posts were made and thence never to be found again. But there it was one evening in 2013 when I was curious enough to look for it. It was academic and quite wooden in its style but then again, it was a product for a graduate class.
And so, your comments are a pleasure to read but also provide a very real "real people" acknowledgement to this blog and I am forever grateful for that - no matter how many or how few.
