Bonjour blog readers! Welcome to my blog and my very first posting! The advice that wordpress gives a first time blogger such as myself, is to explain why you’ve decided to give blogging a go but I would much prefer to explain my name choice.
First of all, I’m a Communications professor at a college. So there’s that mystery solved. Secondly, I enjoy travelling and do quite a bit of it. This year I went to Belize, Texas and I’m on my way to Calgary in a couple of weeks. I’ve even opted to get married on a beach in Jamaica this upcoming January. It’s not that I don’t like Canada, I love it! However, I also feel that nothing beats the experiences that come from travelling and I’m not a fan of the snow, so winter vacations are an absolute must. Travelling is also hilarious. I cannot count how many ridiculous things I’ve seen and done on vacation, which is something I will definitely be sharing with whoever is willing to read it.
I know a blog is not a blog without pictures, so here are a couple of travel pics to give you an idea of what I’ve gotten into away from home.
Now the sisterhood portion comes from the fact that I have a very large group of close-knit friends. I can proudly say I have multiple best friends, including my mom, sister and my fiancé. I’m not sure how pleased he will be at being included in the ‘sisterhood’ aspect of things, but he does enjoy dressing as a woman….
……..so I doubt he will mind too much.
My friends and family are my world and it would not be appropriate to blog about my life without including them in a big way. My experiences with them far outweigh the fun I’ve had travelling but luckily as we get older; it seems that the two merge themselves more often than not. Again, I’m going to insert some pics of these lovely ladies so that you get an idea of what we’re dealing with here.
My sister will actually be guest blogging from time to time as well, especially during the fall and winter months when my life consists mostly of teaching, marking and the occasional exhilarating trip to the grocery store. She’s a young and vibrant, single lady, so she can keep it exciting when I can’t. I also find it hard to believe I will have the time to blog on a very regular basis once work starts up again. Again, I’m new to the blog scene….but did anyone else feel this way when they started up their site?
I will leave you with another question, particularly for you bloggers out there; what are some tips and tricks to make the blogging experience the best that it can be for both the blogger and their audience?
