What is a blog?

Wikipedia explains: “A blog (a portmanteau of the term web log) is a personal journal published on the world wide web consisting of discrete entries ("posts") typically displayed in reverse chronological order so the most recent post appears first. Blogs are usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often are themed on a single subject” 

Or, it’s the ramblings of a person who thinks what they have to say might be of interest to others.

According to a news article I read this morning, Bloggers along with Tweeters, Flickers, Facebookies, Linkedinians, U-Tubeans and multitudinous other social media posters are now under fire from the companies and organizations to whom they are beholden for their daily bread to not “be stupid” and to “stay in their lane.”

Or, it’s the wrong time to ramble without the rumble.

This blog will neither offend nor defend.  It will instead inform and entertain. At least I hope so.  In my heart of heart I am a wordsmith.  Check back please, my first blog smithing will be about the first immigrants who brought the Turner philosophy with them in 1848.
