About a year ago, PB time [pre-blog], I came across
Hey, Harriet and her meme,
Shadow Shot Sunday.
I had no clue what a meme was.
I Googled it and looked it up in the dictionary because
no one I knew had a blog.
Upon reading the "rules," I realized I'd have to
"post" my photos on my own blog and link up each Sunday.
That was a boat-load of lingo with which I was not familiar!
How do you start a blog?
What is posting?
How does one post a photo on a blog?
How does one link up?
What is a URL?
Up to that point, my experience with blogs was limited to
Pioneer Woman [still love ya, Ree!!],
whom I found via Bakerella,
who'd commented on some recipe site I was searching.
But because of my budding interest in learning to use
my camera, a Sony DSLR 100,
and inspired by the likes of PW and Miz Booshay
Harriet's meme really struck a chord in me.
I told her via email
-yes, I did know how to email!-
that someday, when I have a blog,
I'd very much like to participate in her weekly party.
She courteously answered back encouraging me to do that.
My first "personal" contact with a blogger!
Someone in Australia thoughtfully responded to my email.
Well, I hope to shout, folks,
the world is shrinking!
The future is here.
My kids knew that, but Mommy was not so quick on the uptake.
Never mind, I'm "with it" now.
I have a blog.
And I'm posting my first
Shadow Shot Sunday
photographs for all the wide world to see.
|Summer morning beyond the screen door.|
I'm so glad you're there to celebrate with me.
Let's all go out and make it a good week!
Proudly linking up with
Hey, Harriet for the #141st edition of
and A Southern Daydreamer for
and Scenic Sunday
