Let’s Try This Again


A lake in northern Colorado

It’s kind of funny, this blogging thing.

I’ve been blogging since 2003 — at least the first post I wrote on a blog I registered for myself was in 2003. Eleven years later, I have blogged under other many blog addresses and blogging platforms. But the first blog name I registered at Blogger back in 2003 was “Looking for Ballast.” Almost three-and-a-half years ago, I registered “lookingforballast.wordpress.com” thinking it might be useful at some point. I think that useful time has come.

My prior two blogs were the one I kept in Paris, “An Alien Parisienne,” which had moderate “success” as a blog, and a wide readership, and a rather paltry renewal at “Do Overs in Denver,” a blog I tried to keep when moving back to Denver, much to my shock at the time, due to turns in events in my life.

I’ve not written anything at “Do Overs” for months and months. My other problem with keeping that blog is that I have moved, again, to another location in Colorado. Leave it to me to name blogs after the cities in which I’m living, thinking I might actually be in those cities for a length of time, only to be ejected from them. Ha.

I don’t know if I am going to use this place. I don’t know if I want to keep a blog “proper.” But in case I do, and in case this begins again in earnest, I want it to be in this place.

So let’s see what happens, eh?


Hello world!

Just keeping this one in here to know when I started this blog address. :-)
