Spring is in the air - and that means my brain is buzzing, waking up from the gray fog of winter. It's been full of random thoughts, ideas to write about, gears whirring and humming.
After doing a little research about blog writing, I almost decided to rename The Hurricane Report. Most people under 50 don't get the word play in the title - maybe it would make more sense if my name were Katrina or Andrew, instead of Camille. And I don't write about hurricanes, although I have had visitors who found The Hurricane Report by Googling hurricanes and Hurricane Camille and even writing a hurricane report.
I was thinking about Plain Living - because I mostly write about life, and my life is pretty plain. Or, Titus 2 Mom, because I'm a mom and an "older" woman. But if I changed the name, that might confuse folks. And, I've been associated with Hurricane Camille for as long as I can remember. "Hello, my name is Camille. Glad to meet you." "Oh, like the hurricane! Boy, that was a whopper!"
Then, I got an idea from Christian satirist, Jon Acuff. Jon writes a humorous blog - you can check him out here. Very silly stuff. But on Wednesdays, he sets humor aside and writes some fantastic, serious stuff - calls it Serious Wednesdays. Actually, although I enjoy his regular posts, I like his Serious Wednesday posts the best.
Instead of Jon's Serious Wednesdays, I've decided to add a new post each Tuesday to unpack all the random ideas flitting around in my brain - thoughts about raising children, cooking dinner, helping your middle-schooler write a research paper, picking wild mushrooms. Come to think of it, maybe I've been into the wrong kind of wild mushrooms!
This is where I need your help, Dear Reader. Should the new weekly post be labeled Plain Living, or Titus 2-sday? You can vote in the box on top of the right-hand column of The Hurricane Report. (Oooooh, I feel so techno-savvy - I added that feature all by myself, with no help from one of my teenagers!)
