I need to explain at least briefly the name of my blog. It might sound bit negative or cocky to some. Originally I wanted to name it: “You don’t have to read this”, however the name was taken. It did fit my purpose lot more. It said exactly what I meant: “ You don’t have to read this [but you can if you want to]”. The next available one was: “You don’t have to like it”. I did feel a bit of a change of tone but could not come up with anything better…so there 🙂
I am still sticking with it. Did try to find more information about it on the web to no avail. If it has to be a journey of discovery, so be it. At the moment I am lost between menus, pages and categories. I cannot connect the blog post to the pages I would like them to be on. My idea is to have different pages with different topics and add posts to them according to the relevance. Making pages static and grouping all posts into one skein with endless scrolling does not work for me. I don’t know it is the theme or me. Probably me. But as I said I am sticking with it.
So the title from Word Press is Hello World. How fitting. I really feel as if I am opening the doors. That is why I am not changing the title. At least for now. So what is going to be all about? I admire all the people who have a clear cut idea about their mission and start writing their first post without any hesitation. Not me…It was bit of a impulse. Little bit like an impulse buy if you know what I mean. No preparation and no mission. It is only now in retrospect I can see what lead me to it.
The reasons for starting this blog were simple really. One day when looking at some old photos of my great grand parents I thought: “I would love to know what they were thinking about, dreaming about, I would love to have a peek into their world…”. And that is what I am trying to do with this blog. It is an attempt to create a honest window into my world. Secondly, it is a part of my self-discovery as I believe most of the blogs are. And last but not least I do hope to connect with people who are on the same wave. If some of my writings makes them smile or makes them feel good that is enough for me.
And one more thing to mention. I am not a native English speaker. So pardon my English 🙂
