One day into blogging, I must confess when I pressed send for the first post, I felt sheer terror followed almost immediately by exhilaration.
While I’m still afraid of parachuting with my son ( his 21st birthday wish was for us to go parachuting, he’s 26 now, he’s still waiting) a few more exercises like pushing send agreeing to offer up my underbelly both literally as well as figuratively, I might just find myself one of these days sailing down from the heavens right behind my son.
Posting my first blog did present a few technical issues. I’m not saying user error, but it seems I sent a few invites to friends with my username as the sender, a female name no one would connect with me, Rickiesue. (It’s cute, right? Good luck name Rick and my name combined. Well, anyway) When you receive an email saying “check my stuff out,” from someone named Rickiesue, it can be misconstrued. Depending who you send it to, there are some who might avoid opening the email. (understood)
And then there might have been a few who did open it, and ended up quite disappointed with a sunset and blogging about yoga. It’s all in the details.
Apparently I also titled it “Y”, and ended it with an “I” followed by nothing. (Why Y? strange title, must be some deep meaning)
The good news is I’ve found navigating the site that there’s an extremely convenient edit button that lets me change my blog even after it’s been published. Brilliant … (Oh and I recently found out by DNA testing that I’m 66 percent British, so I’m liking the idea of using the word brilliant more as well as Namaste.)
I concede this will be a bit of a learning curve, but hey, we’re on an amazing path, hiking boots on, water bottle in hand.
It’s time to hike.
