With this post, I started blogging in this space eight years ago today. Time has truly flown. As I look back over my posts from that first month, it's interesting to see what issues were important then and where we are today. Norfolk will again have council elections this May. There are new faces representing … Continue reading 8 years at it
I've gotten some emails from folks who said they couldn't leave a comment on my blog because it was asking for some kind of log-in. Until one user sent me a screen capture, I didn't know what they were talking about. Unbeknownst to me, the fine folks here at WordPress.com, where this blog is hosted, … Continue reading Site note: comments
I have agreed to be part of a beta test here at wordpress.com for site advertising. This test is different from the advertising which used to appear on this site (that I actually paid to have removed). Now I will share advertising revenues with wordpress.com, my blog's host. The ads are supposed to be tastefully … Continue reading Testing 1,2,3: advertising

Thanks to this comment, I was reminded that today is the anniversary of this blog. (To be sure, I checked 🙂 ) Six years. How appropriate that my first post was also written on a Saturday. Thanks to all who help make this little corner of the internet a fun place.

Carole lives in Hampton and is involved in a number of issues. With Carole on board, we now have five people writing. One of … Continue reading Site notes
I have been trying for several months to find a theme for the blog. In particular, I wanted one that had the author's name listed at the top of the post. Many of the themes here at wordpress.com assume a single blogger, which was fine when it was just me. But that's no longer the … Continue reading Site notes
Let me know what you think of the new layout here.
By Mark Brooks I found this article a while back and hadn't had a chance to write about it yet. Rosetta Thurman, a blogger, consultant and author, posted on her blog, "Top 10 Young Nonprofit Bloggers to Watch". We might only think of blogging for politics or an interest that you like to keep current … Continue reading Nonprofit bloggers shine
Have to admit I almost missed this today. It's been five years since I made the first post on this blog. I guess time flies when you're having fun - or something. If someone hadn't reminded me, I wouldn't have remembered. (I forgot last year but remembered two years ago.) What was I thinking - … Continue reading Blogoversary: Five years old
