What is this blogging thing?

I just wrote a blog.  And lost it.  I’ll try again.


I enjoy writing and people seem to enjoy my writing.  A couple of people I know are bloggers and so I thought that I would give it a go. I’m not sure who will see this, if it is only people I know or of others will also see it.  I am very new at this.  If you are someone I know then apologies if some of my ramblings are familiar.  If you have stumbled across this, then welcome!


Why “still nifty at fifty”?  Three weeks ago I turned fifty and that was on one of my birthday cards.  The words spoke to me so here we go.   Given that I had lost my job and that our boiler had broken down, I had expected my birthday to be a quiet affair.  My husband, family and friends all had other ideas and so my birthday was well and truly celebrated.


Entering into my sixth decade will create challenges, setting up my own business being one of them.  I am, however, looking forward to sitting down now and again to share my thoughts with those who enjoy a blog.


Will this one publish, I wonder.
