…as Popeye said! To be honest, I didn’t know Popeye said that, until I heard Tony Soprano [James Gandolfini R.I.P.] say it in an episode. I’m not much of a cartoon person so about the only thing I knew about Popeye was that he liked spinach and had a wife named Olive.
The reason for the statement in the headline is that I’m taking part in a WordPress, thirty day challenge. Basically, it’s for new bloggers, but not solely. As I’ve moved a lot, and finally merged two blogs [quackofdawn.com and purringly.me] at the closing of last year, I thought my blog could use a little love and more structure. It’s also a great way to meet new bloggers — please check it out, they’ve set up a forum too.
Here’s what they say about it:
Whether you’ve resolved to start that blog you’ve been thinking about, plan to return to a tumbleweed-strewn site you started long ago, or are committed to giving your current blog a a little more love, we want to help you get there.
Yesterday’s task was to write an introductory post, which felt a bit silly as most of my readers have ‘known’ me for almost three years, so I wrote this — a bit about the choice of domain name. Besides, I already have an About page. The tagline — if I had one — for this blog would be “light flurries” … that’s what it is, rarely anything deep. Otherwise, a question like “Who are you?” could easily lead into some philosophical or existential issues and that’s not really what I’m all about. I’m more of a WYSIWYG [what you see is what you get] kind of person.
I wanted to write this post anyway — not only in case I get some new readers — but also in case you hadn’t seen this WP project. 🙂
