|A taste of my blog: me & new hair, in vintage, or with Hubby, my step-dad and his buddy, Paris, dawn on the Rideau|
And then I just settled into the blog groove. And it’s become one of the most satisfying things I’ve ever done. Right up there with that first grade nine Shakespearean Drama Festival: “The Faces of Love” that my friend Susan and I ran back in 1995. And which was perhaps the most satisfying moment for me in my professional life. When a reader comments on my blog that they enjoyed a post, or laughs at a silly story I’ve told. Or says that a fashion post has given them ideas for their own wardrobe. Or when someone says they really, really get the essence of a person I’m trying to describe, like my stepfather, who I’ve written about often. When readers come back to check replies I’ve made, and to read other comments by other readers, and then even begin a conversation among themselves, like with some book posts. That feels amazing. And really, really gratifying.
So a few weeks ago when Katherine asked for bloggers who are over fifty to be part of her series “Between the Lines,” I thought, “What a great idea.” The point of the series is to introduce “over 50” bloggers to each other and to the readers of their respective blogs. Hence the discussion of why I blog. Which I know is probably old news for those who visit here regularly. Sorry about that folks.
But if you click on any of the links below, they will take you to the posts of other “over 50” bloggers, who might be new to you. Or if you click on the title of the series Between the Lines, you can peruse all of the blogs featured in the series. And for those who are new to High Heels in the Wilderness, I popped a bunch of links into this post that will take you to other posts on my blog, about fashion, or books, or just about life. Hope you find something interesting to read.
