A New Beginning

I am trying to get back into blogging. I had this Google Blogger account for a couple of years, but I let it languish. My old laptop PC was so slow and creaky that the prospect of logging on to the machine to do a quick and effortless blog entry was very discouraging. But I've had this Ipad 2 for some months now, and it activates with the flick of a finger, perfect for blogging.

I revisited my blog and took a look at the old entries. With such lengthy spans between old entries, the blog was pretty much irrelevant. So I'm starting over.

I had a false start earlier today by shutting down my Google Blogger account and opening up a Wordpress account. I did this because Wordpress has a free Ipad app that works with its blog platform. To fully utilize Google Blogger, I would need the Blogpress app, costing $2.99.

I'm cheap, so I went with the Wordpress option. However, after a day of being challenged by the Wordpress platform, I have decided to return to Google Blogger. I coughed up the $2.99 and purchased/downloaded Blogpress. This is my first "new" post using the Blogpress app. I will try to upload a sample image along with this first post, to see if I've got the hang of this thing, to see how intuitive it is to post both text and media to my Google Blogger account using Blogpress. To start, let's go with an image of my favorite attraction at my favorite place on earth:

Mission accomplished. I think this is going to work out fine.

Speaking of the Haunted Mansion, only a couple more months until I get down to Walt Disney World for some Halloween fun. Trick or treating in the Magic Kingdom should be a lot of fun, and I'm looking forward to our stay at Bay Lake Tower.

I've got a good friend going to WDW in just a few short weeks (actually, I think he's down to days...). He and his family are staying at the Polynesian.

I hope he and his family have a great time. It's August and Central Florida, so I do hope he brings plenty of sunscreen and drinks lots of liquids.


  1. I like the pictures.

  2. Disneyholism... it's a terrifying disorder. :P

  3. Hi Gridiron,

    I prefer the term "Mousejunkie." And we are legion:

    There are worse addictions.
