I recently received notice from WordPress making me aware that I’ve been writing Lulu’s Musings for ten years. Man, I didn’t know I had that many words in me!
What prompted the blog was my desire to stay in touch with friends in both of the places where I live. To some extent it has worked, but most who follow the blog are folks I’m not likely to ever meet as they span the globe. I never dreamed there would be readers in Taiwan, Vietnam, South Africa, Europe, Argentina and so many more places. Knowing all are out there provides such motivation to continue writing, and I am so very grateful for all who have been a presence over the years.
The blog world was completely new to me ten years ago. Early on, I stumbled across Between Naps on the Porch where I found a shared interest in tablescapes. That became the subject for one of my first posts which I linked to Tablescape Thursday. Ten years later I continue to share everyday tables created for family and friends.
One of the things the hubby and I do well together is travel, and we are fortunate to have taken some wonderful trips. They have provided great fodder for the blog, and those posts attract many readers who travel vicariously with me.
I like writing about food and sharing recipes. Food has been a challenging exercise when it comes to photographing it, and that is something at which I am trying to get better. Helpful hints are appreciated!
Sharing life in Maine is one of my favorite subjects. Its unspoiled beauty, the islands that dot Penobscot Bay, boating to a lobster shack for lunch, spending time with friends all make my heart sing. It makes me happy that some readers have actually been prompted by the Maine posts to visit and have taken the time to get in touch.
Houston is quite a contrast to Maine. It is big with with all the associated hustle and bustle. Thanks to the blog, I’ve been motivated to be more adventurous here which has led to discovering many new aspects of this very culturally diverse city.
So, as 2021 unfolds it will be interesting to see what captures my attention as it’s difficult to explore thanks to the pandemic. Should the blog not be as regular, I invite you to follow @lulu’s musing on Instagram where I will attempt to be a regular presence.
Again, thank you for being part of my blog life and for the many comments you share either here or by email. They are the fuel that keeps me going. Happy 2021 to you all.
