Hello and Welcome to My New Blog

Welcome! The choices I gave myself for a blog were Tumblr and WordPress. So here I am. It’s nothing fancy but it fits me well. It doesn’t need to be too elegant at this time since I Blogwill only be writing a few times a week, if that often.

I’ve fallen in love with Twitter, and find I need a place to expand on my thoughts and share with others that take up more than 120 characters.

A small group of us had a blast this last Friday night! People were frantically replying, tweeting, retweeting, favoriting, reading blogs, eating cake, the ladies fighting over men… Sue, also known as @homenotalone even went to ask her husband for permission! Quite fascinating actually. It was grand. All in jest of course. (wink) Fantasma Divine, known as @FantasmaDivine, reached the 1K follow milestone in just a week! And here I thought I was doing well with 310 followers in 4 weeks. (Mindy says, as she glares over at Fantasma.) I’m still defining myself I guess. I like having a smaller following for now. I hope to meet more wonderful people on Twitter.

Oh and then there is Odell, known as @DellDracula on Twitter, who likes to suck the life out of Dell computers. Actually I find that Dell (not Odell) sucks the life out of me. I’m about to buy a MacBook Pro. But don’t you know? The new MacBook Pro with Retina display doesn’t have a Kensington lock slot on these theft magnets! Oh well. Should I still get one? What was Apple thinking? It is only a deterrent, I know. But it is better than nothing.

What can be expected from my blog in the future, you ask? Perhaps I’ll expand on some creative ideas (top secret for now) that hopefully will lead to a book of science fiction, full of imagination and intrigue. Stay tuned. While other posts will have to do with breast cancer since I’m a cancer survivor, I will also be posting about mental health as I am a mental health advocate and consumer.

But I hope to make things interesting here on WordPress. Perhaps I’ll echo back a little of what I’m learning from Jackson, the author known as @Jackson_D_Chase, about Twitter and writing. He’s over there on the other side of the fence. No ladies, not that fence. Do not fret. He’s over on Tumblr. Jackson is the guy all the ladies were fighting over the other night. So Jackson, I hope you are recovering okay. Did you eat all that cake by yourself?

With much love, fun, and hugs everybody.

Mindy
