Assignment 1 – Blogging 101

This is my first assignment in Blogging 101.  Why? you say are doing an assignment after three years of blogging. Why?

Why not? It’s the first blogging course I’ve ever taken and it’s always good to prime the pump.

Assignment numero UNO

  • write and publish a “who I am and why I’m here” post

Peachland BC across the street from Bliss bakery on Okanagan lake, just me

My name is Dave, I am here on WordPress to learn, and be creative. I am also interested in sharing about the Okanagan, and perhaps test to see if I can write, and others will find my writing interesting.

I logged onto a blog post in India just a day or so ago and a young girl wrote about her life. She was an excellent writer and I realized her life was very different than mine, and I asked her to write more about her life, and culture there. I likely will never get to India, and perhaps there are others around the world who are interested in my life in Canada in comparison to theirs.

I am retired one year from a desk job but I retired for my health because I have had a kidney transplant and retirement would be better for my health. Someone may be interested in kidney transplant patients because they know someone who may be facing dialysis also. Since my transplant was 27 years ago, they may find my experiences encouraging, possibly hopeful.

I am here to learn, I am doing this Blogging 101 course to learn more as so far I am self taught. I am also here to share about Canada and this tiny corner where I am fortunate to be planted.

This part of Canada is beautiful, beaches, wineries, clean warm lakes to swim in during the summer, and skiing and boarding in the ski resorts in the winter.  Most people can bike or drive to work in less than 15 minutes.  Questions?
