I shall officially be the first to welcome myself to the blogging world. Welcome, self. Let me also welcome you to my blog. Welcome, friend! Please enjoy. . .
Yes, I have decided to start a blog (hence this new creation you are now experiencing). But . . . I must confess this is not my first attempt. I did try a blogspot–which was promptly deleted after I gave up on it (it contained a whopping 1 post). If you try to find it–you won’t (unless it’s still under a cache somewhere). The old name was http://www.dialpound.blogspot.com. Pound is for LB (LB is for Laura Beth–Laura Beth is for . . . well, me).
So why didn’t I keep the old name or the old blogspot? Good question. Glad you asked. There isn’t a terribly good reason, other than the fact that I like WordPress much better. But why not keep “dialpound” ? I don’t know . . . I almost did . . . But, when one signs up for a WordPress blog, one is told that the domain name is permanent and cannot be changed . Finality is one of those scary things. One has to choose the perfect name. So yes, I had second thoughts.
All right. I confess. It took me some long hours to think of a name. I left my computer for a while with the registration tasks still open . . . because I couldn’t think of a good name. “Idiom” came first. That word appeals to me–can’t explain why. Has a sort of pleasant whim to it I suppose. “Ingenuity” came some hours later. Yes, being the nerd I am, I poured over my computer dictionary and thesarus (I love the Thesaurus–and to think when I was little I thought it was some sort of extinct Dinosaur). But, after much thought and labor I have created the title, “idiom ‘ingenuity’ “. I like it . . . for now. Of course, I will probably regret it later. . .
