Have you ever thought about Blogging?

(I hope so!) Because Blogging is lots of fun!

It all started for me on august the 18th 2013, while enjoying a soy latte at STARBUCKS© with my good friend David (My advisor and bodyguard). I challenge you to guess which one is good ole David? and which one is me? During our conversation, good ole David, who just so happens to love my books, complimented me on my writing skills and suggested I start writing Blogs.

I, of course, had no idea what a Blog was, much less how to write one? He went on to explain that a Blog is nothing more than a short collection of thoughts or experiences that you publish on your website. The word thoughts make me think back to the time my dear sweet mother told me to always have a good hot cup of Coffee while cooking. According to my mom: “Coffee gives you Courage! © And since my mom was always right, I can’t help but believe this also holds true for Blogging. So, I grabbed a hot cup of coffee and got started! The next paragraph will help you realize that you don’t have to be an English Professor to be a Blogger.

When I was a little boy, I idolized my two big brothers. but unfortunately, they teased me a lot and some things that were said jokingly, I took to be true. They made a point of telling me that boys who liked English in school were “Sissies”. Of course, I didn’t want to be called a “Sissy” so, from that time on I paid very little attention to studying English. I now know that their simple joking has had a very detrimental effect on my life. Simply put, I am a very poor speller, baffled by punctuation, and although I am mesmerized by the term “dangling participle”, I really don’t have a grasp on what a “dangling participle” is, nor what to do with those precarious little “dangling participles”. However, I do love “commas” and enjoy sprinkling them about my prose. I often ask myself how anyone with such a poor background in English ever made it through 10 years of college?

Bottoms-up! Perhaps it was the Coffee?

Please let me know how I did on My 1st Born Blog? And pardon my asking if you are aware of the term “Poetic License”, which may be defined as (A writers’ privilege to depart from an expected standard of writing, by ignoring some minor requirements of grammar). (My type of Definition!) And-needless-to-say, I love the term “Poetic License” and have embraced this principal since I became an Author. And FYI (For Your Information) I am no longer a simple “Dr. Phil D Mayers, Author”, I am now a complex “Dr. Phil D Mayers, Author Blogger”.

I hope “My 1st Born Blog” has brought a touch of sunshine into your Loving little heart. It’s been a long time since I wrote this Blog, and I must say I dearly Love it. “My 1st Born Blog” will always be special to me, and I often go back to pay it a little visit (which of course I’m doing right now).

P.S. I would like to thank you for reading “My 1st Born Blog” and I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it will stimulate you to start writing “Your own 1st Born Blog” so you too can put “Author Blogger” behind your name, because (Writing Blogs is lots of fun!)
