Today marks the anniversary of my first blog post, a dedication to my sister moon…I deleted that particular post; but it’s been four years since I created this WordPress blog.
Today is also Day One of my blog everyday challenge(s) during the month of September.
My name is Beaton but you can call me ~B.. everyone does.
My blog is titled Becoming The Muse; but to be honest the meaning of that changes everyday; there is no one truth. Yesterday I wanted you to be my muse, today I want you to be mused by me, and tomorrow maybe you shall muse yourse…… in musing you, I (a)muse myself…..
I hail from a teapot shaped country south of the continent of Africa; Zimbabwe.
NOTE: The map is drawn not to scale, superimposed Zimbabwe to its relative position to bring out the shape
It’s the first day of spring today but we basically have two seasons, summer and winter, and it doesn’t snow, not ever. I wouldn’t be surprised that our winters are warmer than some people’s summer. Basically our seasons are hot dry season, hot wet season, cold wet season, cold dry season…. Repeat.
My blog has shifted a lot from when I first started, when it was basically a digital diary of all the stories I wanted to eventually tell and I posted at a frequency of once a very long time *hides*
Now my blog has become a place; alive all by its self, a place I make friends and learn and teach a thing or two… who would have thought it?
I have had a blog for years now and still I confess I never think of myself as a blogger; I am a writer who happens to have a blog:
If I am somewhere and they say we need a blogger here, the way they say *somebody call a doctor* in the movies…..
I would be looking around as well, looking for the blogger being called for…….
And here I am, a part of not just one blogging challenge but two …. #BlogTemberChallenge and #30DayAfriBlogger both are aligned with sharing the African Narrative…
Its official; September is Africa month at least on this blog it will be….
PS I am curious if you could let me know where you are, its weird how you never really think about where the person on the other side of the screen is and sometimes you assume, even wrongly too ^_^
