Last week was the anniversary of this blog. We’ve been here for five years now, I was surprised to notice.
I opened a blog and website after being told at a writers conference that every serious writer should have one. And nowadays most of them do.
There is a “rule” that a blog should have a theme … and I have bent that rule badly. I write about whatever I think of on a given Sunday afternoon (my usual time to post here, though on occasion I have been as much as a week late).
The reason for no theme is simple: I am not an expert on anything. If I were to write only about gardening, parenting, movies, music or even writing, I would soon run dry. I am not an expert on anything but I have an opinion on most everything. So this blog focuses around my opinion on rather trivial matters. It is my point of view: First Person Limited.
Thanks for visiting my blog. If you want to cruise around and read some old posts, you’ll find them easily categorized to the right, by year or subject.
Thanks to my son, Steve May, for hosting my site. He makes my technologically challenged life so much easier.

I, too, like to write on general subjects. Does that make me a general? Uh, a generalist??? One-themed blogs may be good for some, but not for me, either. xoxo

I always enjoy your blog and from what I read, I know you can be funny and serious, but always wise. Congratulations on 5 years.

Congratulations, Dot, on your five year anniversary of blogging! You are a pro. I like your style of writing, and your sense of humor. My theme is life’s experiences, I suppose, expressed in poetry, prose and photos. Trying hard to keep the photography hobby from taking over my writing time! Sometimes, one has to do what he has to do! Which is, what he or she loves to do! 🙂
