Blog is not in my Dictionary

I have looked at some of the tools and editing procedures that are available to me as the owner of this blog, and they are quite daunting and confusing.  When I read other blogs, I never gave much thought to what goes on in the background.  My brothers and sister have such interesting sites filled with pictures, categories and links, and it never dawned on me until now how proficient they are at producing very professional blogs.

I can see that it will take some time to get used to the idea of being a publisher.  I also realize that it will be fun to learn how even though it may seem like work at times.  I know there are several people just waiting to give me advice on how to do it:) (I need to make a smiley face here)

Someone once said that inactivity makes for very poor writing and I have to agree that when I hike, go geocaching, or visit someplace new, I have a lot more to say.  Over the last few years I’ve written several journals about the backpacking trips I’ve taken, and even though I write them mostly so that I can remember, they might be something to share here.  I don’t intend to make this a place to reminisce, tell my history, or write some kind of memoir of my life, but I have very few opinions about anything.

    I’ve read some of your hiking journals, and they are interesting. I’m not sure you should post the whole journals here, but excerpts would be good, especially of current activities.

    Starting my blog was how I got familiar with a tiny bit of HTML and learned how to FTP. It’s not hard, and you’ll get the hang of it quickly. Poke around the design pages in your admin setup and you’ll see how to put up links. Visit for hundreds of themes. That’s what makes a blog look pretty, and someone else has already done all the work!

    Yeah that’s my problem too. I have very few opinions. 😉

    Glad to see you getting your feet wet.
