How do you feel about the first blog post you ever wrote?
What do you want for your blog?
The first blog post I wrote was, “Beginning.” The date was 24th Feb 2013. It was a great discovery to a virtual world, I never knew existed. It was a new beginning, so I named it such. I was on a visit to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I had initially gone there for two weeks but stayed on the insistence of my daughter for two months.
Here is a picture of where I stayed.
After the death of my husband in August 2012, I was on my own. I was alone and time stood on my hands. So when I visited Nola, she suggested to me to write a blog. I laughed at first at the mere notion of it. Nola was serious. She convinced me gradually, so that’s how I started.
The first thing was the Blog’s name. Flowers is taken from my middle name and Breezes from my first name. Flowersandbreezes was born. My fictitious name Sheenmeem is taken from the first and last letter of my name.
I am trying to improve my writing skills. It is a gradual process. I would like to write fictitious stories in the future. Up till now I have only written three stories. After that may be I write a serial one on a weekly base. At the moment I don’t want to think ahead. I live my life from day to day.

It’a good start.Everyone has to begin from somewhere. I am happy you took your daughter’s advice.She wants you to be happy.
I started blogging when one of my online course participant came up with the idea. I asked my course Facilitator about it .He encouraged me.One of my other course participant wrote and told me to translate Tagore’s (Bengali) poems. I have done a lot of them. When I run out of things to write, I translate.
I find it worthwhile to blog.
Best wishes to you.
Thank you. The time does pass quickly. With blogging the other chores go on multiplying.
