This is my first blog and my 500th

Weir at CohunaToday I celebrate my 500th blog posting! WOW! I started blogging on 28 December in 2010! This is what I had to say in my very first post:

“I want to share my thoughts about life and its purpose. I want to pose questions that are eternal! Why are we here? Does it matter, what we do? Is my role in life predestined?

When I was growing up I was taught by nuns in the Catholic Church. I hung onto those thoughts and beliefs for many years. They were good for me at times in my life. Overall I think they had a very negative impact on my self esteem. I started to study philosophy and see the world from a different perspective.”

As I reflect on my blogging journey I also reflect on my life journey. Blogging has given me a platform to express myself like I have never done before. I write and post photos because I have something to say and share. My blogging has evolved just as my life’s course has evolved – it is all one journey! (The photo above is of the Cohuna Weir. I have many happy memories of my childhood associated with the Weir.)

I greatly appreciate it when someone reads my blog or “likes” it or both. This is my opportunity to thank YOU!

I haven’t chased the statistics and I obviously will never be a star blogger but that is OK. Thanks for joining me on my journey and for teaching me about other interesting parts of the world, different cultures, age groups, interests and perspectives.

This blog would not be  complete without an enormous THANK YOU to WordPress for enabling all this to happen. You are awesome!

  1. I’ve been posing those questions also, throughout my life. My blog is kind of a chronological report of those questions and, eventually, what I have concluded. It’s nice to know other people (in society today) are also looking for answers. Take care and thanks for your attention to my blog.

  2. I grew up Roman Catholic as well, and I always followed the rules. I am an adult now and have changed so much. This is a great blog. I love questions and philosophy. This is really up my alley. Keep up the great photo’s too. In the winter here in Illinois I will come back to enjoy this photo to remember how nice summer time is. Warm. But the change of seasons is okay too. Have a delightful day. 🙂 Jackie Paulson a friend, a fan, forever.
