“Could you could contribute to our blog once a month”, my boss of four months asked me.
“I guess I can”, I replied.
“I wouldn’t normally ask”, he clarified. “But it would be nice to have a view from the ground.”
“I’ll give it a shot”, I assured him.
“You don’t have to write much. Just throw in a lot of pictures and describe them.”
“The first few posts may be hard”, he said. “But after that you should discover your voice.”
I nearly snorted. Should I have just told him I have been blogging for two years?
Yes, you heard it right. It was on July 8, 2008 that the first post went up on Coffee Rings Everywhere, and except one day in November 2009, I haven't missed a single day.
Time to gather the balloons and celebrate, don't you think?
Today is also the day when my first post is up at Burrowers, Books & Balderdash. Head there, grab a coffee, and read a requime to the Cafe Steinbeck, one of the finest places in the world.
And thank you everyone for your supportive comments on yesterday's post. It never fails to amaze me how, when I am so often misunderstood by people around me, people I have never met, and who I may never meet are able to offer exactly the kind of comfort that I need.
