The blog title, Ramblings of a Crowded Mind, came from a document I’d begun years ago, a journal of sorts, wherein I’d documented things about which I’d often thought. The title was a way to find what I was looking for in my myriad of computer files, about memories that clamored in my head until I finally wrote them down.
They included some of my fondest memories. What my maternal grandmother’s home looked like, felt like, smelled like. How it felt each night when my mother tucked me in after helping me to memorize “The Lord’s Prayer.” Then, there were some not-so-fond memories we don’t need to go into here.
The blog experts say if you want to have a successful blog, you must have a focus, a theme or subject, by which you interest blog readers and entice them to follow your blog. I thought about reviewing books I’d read. However, most blogs I’ve perused do not usually review books, but rather invite the authors to tell us about their books. That’s good; however, I’m looking for something a bit different. Not only that, I can review books on Amazon.com, from which I purchase most of my reading materials, or other sites.
I’m not an expert on anything. I’ve dabbled in many things to the point the cliché applies: “jack of all trades and master of none.” So for now at least, my blog will simply be ramblings. Not likely I’ll amass a great following, but if you know me and wonder what I’m thinking about, stop by, or “follow” me and you’ll get an email notice when I blog. (Of course if you have a book you’d like reviewed here, I’ll be more than happy, as long as it’s clean and theologically sound. I do love to read.)
