Welcome to my most beautiful new website! After much collaboration with my web designer, Chuck Burke firstname.lastname@example.org. I am so, so, SO pleased with the result. This site is so much more “me” than my old one was. Take a look around – I think you’ll agree.
I set myself a goal earlier this year to write at least four blog posts per year. I think this will be number two so, on track! I’d like to do more. Goodness knows I’m always coming up with ideas for blog posts; usually when I’m trying to go to sleep or when I’m in the bath. Often, I’ll write the entire post in my head. Like this one. The first blog post on my new website – an important one! It was completely written in my head a couple of nights ago. It was spectacular, funny, profound, insightful. It would have changed lives!
Sadly, I neglected to get out of bed and write it down. “I’ll remember it,” I said confidently to myself. Now, here I sit, blank paper in front of me, and not a single clue as to what that brilliant post was about. Heavy sigh. I even downloaded an app to my phone a few months ago that allows me to speak into it and it will convert my conversation into text, which I can just email to myself for such an occasion. Unfortunately, I don’t sleep with my phone. I know, many do. Any of you who are or who have teenagers know this. Alas, I don’t. But I know what I need. Maybe what we all need.
I need to live on the starship Enterprise. I need to be able to say “Computer, write this down” as I continue to lie comfortably in my bed, eyes closed, ready to drift off. “Future blog post,” I’d say. “This is the answer to solving all of the problems of the universe,” I’d say. When I awoke in the morning, I would have all the answers. Instead, I am left asking myself why I didn’t get out of bed and get my phone or at least a pen and some paper. ANYTHING so that the problems of the universe could be solved!
Unfortunately, my lack of preparedness leaves me currently unable to solve those particular problems. I have solved one problem however; the problem of never again losing those wonderful blogs written in bed or the bath. Henceforth, I shall sleep and bathe with my iPhone. Thank goodness for waterproof cases.
Enjoy my new site. I’ll let you know if I remember how to solve the problems of the universe.
