Now a Blog of Note? Possibly. Featuring Words of Wisdom? Less likely.
To my regular readers, and those who regularly steal - I mean borrow permanently without asking or recognition - my photos and content - I'm trying to be a little more participatory in my blogging and possibly expand my composition skills a bit. This means actually asking other people what they think of my blog and how I could improve it. True, there's something to be said for not messing with over three years of mediocrity.....but why not?
One of the groups I ran across was a blog called Words of Wisdom who regularly showcase blogs that they consider to be "of substance." You are reading their selected blog (yay!) for October 18, 2010. Please check out their page if you haven't already!
To Words of Wisdom readers who have followed over from the jump, please take a few minutes to poke around, kick the tires, and let me know what you find entertaining and not-so-much out of what I've thrown together in the last few years. I am always trying to improve my writing, so have at it. As you may be picking up already, I am an outdoors maniac. I have been one for as long as I can remember. My faulty memory, hectic lifestyle, and need for a good journal of my travels and lessons kind of pushed me into blogging in 2007. And here I still am.
Pam & Sandy from Words of Wisdom asked me to list my three favorite posts. With almost 300 under my belt, that's a challenge. Among my favorite AND those receiving the highest traffic are:
Goose Ground Zero - Maryland's Eastern Shore ( January, 2009)
C&O Canal at Great Falls of the Potomac (November, 2009)
Light Tackle Lunchbreak on the Chickahominy (June, 2009)
No Alligators in Virginia. Zero. None (May, 2010)
South Carolina Low Country, Day 2 (April, 2009)
Cicada Killer, Qu'est Que C'est? (July, 2009) - still not sure why this receives so much traffic!
Thanks for stopping by & be sure to introduce yourself!
