Another New Iron in the Fire

Last week was my first ever home made corned beef, and it turned out great. This week, I started my first ever blog. It doesn't sell anything, at least not yet. It might morph into something like that down the road. But for now, It's something I'm doing to familiarize myself with publishing my own content, and entertaining those who read it. I'm trying to make it fun to read, a bit humorous, and throw in some horse sense for those that might need a bit more of that. It's a bit tongue-in-cheek, if you know what I mean, and is all about family. I invite everyone to take a peek, come back to this thread, and let me know what you think. Of course, there isn't much to critique yet. I only have two pages, one written last Thursday, and oen typed in last night.

I might start another blog that pulishes my first novel, the one that's been written for ten years and proofread fifty or so times (I may be exagerating, a little). I'll put in maybe ten pages worth of content per day, if I do the novel. That should be fun as well, and it will introduce my work to the world, for free.
So that's the plan. Hope you read and enjoy it.

One more thing; though the link says especially for dad's, it's written to tickle everyone's funny-bone.

For any who are interested, here's the link: gwnorthespeciallyfordads

Thanks everyone. I will be putting something up every night, just to try and entertain, and maybe, help someone else avoid mistakes that I've made, and even give people tools by the things I've done right.

If I put one of my novels on the site, under another title, about 10 pages at a time, do you think that would be entertaining, maybe get people to read?

Let me know what you think. And I'll keep posting the occasional recipe as well.

My boy hogged the computer last night, and so I didn't have a chance to add to the blog. Will do so again tonight.

What are my chances of getting a critique of the pictures on my latest blog posting?
