My Very First Post Revisited #MyFirstPostRevisited

Thanks to Lisa Amaya from the Life Of An El Paso Woman blog for nominating me for the “My First Blog Post” challenge. The challenge was created by Sarah Brentyn of the Lemon Shark blog.

Of course, there are rules (always rules!). In a twist, these rules are in levels:

Obvious rules:

  • No cheating. (It must be your first post. Not your second post, not one you love…first post only.)
  • Link back to the person who tagged you (thank them if you feel like it or, if not, curse them with a plague of ladybugs).

Other rules:

  • Cut and paste your old post into a new post or reblog your own bad self. (Either way is fine but NO editing.)
  • Put the hashtag #MyFirstPostRevisited in your title.
  • Tag five (5) other bloggers to take up this challenge.
  • Notify your tags in the comment section of their blog (don’t just hope they notice a pingback somewhere in their spam).
  • Feel free to cut and paste the badge to use in your post. Notify your tags in the comment section of their blog (don’t just hope they notice a pingback somewhere in their spam).
  • Include “the rules” in your post.

My nominees (who are under no obligation to participate) are as follows:

Chevvy from Chevvy’s Studio

Just Joan from Just Joan 42

Susan Leighton from Woman On The Ledge

Paula from Never A Dull Bling

Kim from Peace, Love & Patchouli

Okay, that’s the rules wrapped up…linked five blogs, pasted badge…oh yeah, the post. The first post. Well, this being the A Joyful Process blog, what else would I have titled my first post? I hope it foreshadowed all the work that followed. Here is my first post.

The Process Begins

What is “A Joyful Process”?

To me, a joyful process is when I learn something. When I read something that is interesting, fascinating or just plain enjoyable. When I am able to take what I see, hear, feel, think or read and turn it into something that interests someone else. For the purpose of this blog, writing is the joyful process.

This is the post where the process begins. I’ve been blogging off and on for several years, and here is yet another attempt to start, maintain, and keep a blog active. I want to engage people the same way I am engaged when I read, watch or hear something that makes me want to write about it.

Of course, there has to be theme music. Theme music? Yes, theme music.

What you will see on this blog are posts about sports, music, television, web articles and the like and my reaction to and opinion about those particular items. There may also be, from time to time, some personal stories, dependent upon whether or not I feel they are fit to publish publicly. Feel free to join in the conversation. The thoughts and opinions expressed here are mine, and mine alone. I don’t mind reasonable debate, but I’m not here to change anyone’s mind either.

Welcome to A Joyful Process.

There it is.

  1. You got off to an awesome start, T Wayne! Thanks for the nomination, very timely. I’ve gotten a spate of new followers recently and maybe they’d enjoy my first post, a “getting to know you” poem that’s as true today as it was back when I hopped on the speeding WordPress train. Coming soon, keep your eye out. 🙂

  2. Hey T.Wayne! Just wanted to let you know, I searched my archives and no luck finding my first post. I was just learning WordPress at the time so Lord only knows. Thanks again for giving me a shout out. Sorry I couldn’t participate. :{
