Here is my first post to my blog. About two years too late.
I know this because two years ago, my readers started telling me that I should blog. I ignored them, mostly, because it seemed like too much work to write every day. After all, I write two columns a week and I invariably do an interview from the gym or from my son’s preschool. I couldn’t imagine doing more work. But now I can’t imagine not having a blog.
One of the readers who made me think the hardest about blogging was Dennis Yang. In fact, he set up a trial blog for me. Which I never used but also never stopped thinking about.
And this reminds me of dozens of readers who told me I should write a book, two or three years before I did. (And my mom. She told me a lot, too.)
So now I have learned my lesson. If I had taken the advice of my readers, I’d have been ahead of myself in many ways. Hopefully, the blog will make it so I hear from more readers on more topics.
As for listening to my mom more, I’m not sure about that.
About darned time, PT, but better late than never. Cheers!
Maybe you could add more pictures too!
Hi Penelope, I’m trawling your archives today. I’m confused. This is your first post? But your archives go back to 2001. Huh?

Good question. The archives prior to this post are my columns. Today I still post columns on the blog, but it’s a little fuzzy – many of my blog posts get sold as columns in one way or another. So the whole thing is a column and blog post archive.
