I usually don’t participate in these challenges but since this one is real easy and I have some free time today I figured I’d play along.
Here are the rules:
Copy-paste, link, pingback, etc. your first post.
Identify the post: introduction, story, poem.
Explain why it was your first post.
Nominate five other bloggers. (Which I will not be doing – such a rebel!)
My first post on this blog dates back to April 2014. I had recently turned fifty and unlike a number of my friends who had been struggling with this milestone themselves, I wanted to put a positive spin on it.
I got the idea for the post from a similar one I saw online, and as soon as I read it I knew this would be an excellent way to kick off my blog. The post is essentially a list of my top 50 reasons why I was okay with hitting the half century mark.
So without further ado, here’s my first post:
Thanks to Hollie for nominating me on this one. Obviously I had very few followers back then so this is a great way to introduce some of my newer friends to my older posts.
If you haven’t read Hollie’s blog before you may want to check it out. She has a very direct way with her words and a unique style that has made me laugh countless times over the past year.
If you like the idea and would like to try it out for yourself, please consider yourself nominated.
As always, thanks for reading.
