Well, writing the first post on your blog is always an interesting experience. For the first-time blogger, it could even be a memorable one. There is the trepidation on how your opinions or writing would be received, the eager anticipation for readers, an occasional scratching of the head on what to write, the indecision on the page themeā€¦.with each person it is different, but somehow the same. Whether the blog is going to be professional or personal, based on travel or interests or on random thoughts or bubbles of imagination, the first impression is important. An introductory note on what the blog is about is traditional if not de rigueur, but I think I will skip that part. I will just get on with writing, and see exactly where it takes me. As the title suggests, this blog is set to be a daily rite kind of thing: let us hope I keep my word to myself on this one. For as we bloggers all know, there is something a lot more demanding than the first post, and that is not merely the second post, but also the ambition of daily posts afterwards.

    So true! The part about all those posts after the first. As you’ve probably observed, there’s a whole lot of nothing on my blog! This need for perfection, why? And definitely done the scratching head thing A LOT lately. Well put, all of it.

    Would love to view some of your stories – any in particular you’d like me to see?

    Best, ALWAYS, lc
