Trying to Find My Voice...

Those who know me from Facebook may find it difficult to believe, but I'm having difficulty deciding what to post here. It's different posting quick little sarcastic blurbs on Facebook than it is filling this larger box on my blogger screen. And it's different when one's not responding to something someone else wrote.

And I'm trying to avoid writing about genealogy here--so I'm looking for a different slant on things. And I'm not really interested in writing about the election.

Some use writing prompts, but that always strikes me as a little bit contrived. If you need a prompt to write, then you must not have much to say.

Maybe somewhere there is a student using a calculator that needs it taken away.

Stay tuned--we'll get in the "flow" before long.

Still Getting Set Up

Like most things I do, this blog was started on a whim with little pre-planning. I've got friends who've been planning things for years and have never gotten them started. I tend to operate on the other side of the spectrum--at least some of the time.

So we're likely to change it up a few times before the layout and look settles in.

This Blog Address Is... I'm not certain one really ever is a "former farm boy," but it was one of the names I typed in that was not already taken. We'll be posting various attitude and other ruminations here which I have previously put on Facebook.

You'll just never know what you'll find here--although I do tend to like third person ;-)

I'm Not Liking Politicians On Facebook..

mainly because I don't necessarily want my Facebook friends to see which politician I "like" or "don't." Those little "ads" in the upper right hand corner will indicate which politician I support.

Of course, I really don't support any of them--which makes liking most of them virtually impossible.


Maybe I'll post things here that really aren't relevant to my genealogy pages. Time will tell how interesting they actually are.
