Baby Boomers and Blogs

Can (or should) a retired teacher and juvenile fiction author seek entry to the blogging world? At a writing conference last spring, presenter Tom Britt assured me that, indeed, I would be welcomed in this arena. So here we are at the meeting of two diverse worlds. I'm reminded of the commercial for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups that aired several years ago: chocolate and peanut butter, two separate tastes coming together in an accidental meeting that opened the door to unexplored opportunities.

We'll see what comes of this new meeting. Some of you will find courage to jump in. You'll be challenged to top this early effort in your own inaugural blog thinking, "Surely I can do better than that!" Others of you will be confirmed in your resolve to stay out of places you don't belong.

If nothing else, I hope you'll visit A Summoning Stone's website. That one is a little more sophisticated and offers classroom teachers, as well as juvenile fiction readers some free downloads and great information!
