I STARTED KEEPING A BLOG when the earth was covered in ice.
Really. It’s true.
Like one of my favorite cartoon characters, Scrat, the Ice Age squirrel, back then I focused on getting
readers my acorn. Keeping readers my acorn.
No matter what.
I posted almost daily. Sometimes more than once a day even. Can you imagine?
We all did. Egos demanded it.

I ONLY SHARE THIS RETROSPECTIVE with you, my gentle readers, as a way of introducing you to a concept I dreamed up last week while I sat stuck inside my house due to massive amounts of rain.
This has not been the kind of summer to be outside. Too wet. Too moldy. It makes me itch.
So I thought to myself…
Why not return to a modified version of old-time blogging and post here 3 or 4 days a week? For one month.
Like I used to do when I was new to blogging and commenters were a dime a dozen and there was a sense of community among those of us who were either courageous enough OR crazy enough to share all the details of our lives with virtual strangers.

WITH THE FOREGOING IN MIND I have taken the liberty of creating my very own unique hashtag: #JibberJabberJuly. It’s what all the cool kids do now, making hashtags that is.
Although they usually use some sort of acronym, or garbled words, that no one outside of their group understands. Which I think sort of defeats the purpose of connection among virtual strangers.
To wit, I have used my propensity toward creative alliteration + my love of clear communication to gift the world with my hashtag. Feel free, gentle readers, to adopt it, or the concept upon which it is based, as your own all month.
Let’s get it
started jibber-jabbering in here. Shall we?
