Well, my blog isn’t shiny and new anymore, but it is still my first one. I’m really glad you stopped by!
I actually had quite a few pictures I wanted to use for this updated page, but in the end couldn’t come to a decision on my own. Therefore, I left it to my blogging buddies on here to make the decision for us all. The above picture is the top result of their votes. The picture below is the runner-up. I especially liked one comment I got on the above picture during the voting process about this being a good picture to use for this page because the footprints in the sand were very symbolic of striking off in a new direction. And a new direction this certainly is.
When I started this blog, I did it basically to appease the writing club I had joined when I moved to the Chesapeake Bay area. They suggested perhaps I was ready for a bigger audience than just our little group and encouraged me to begin a blog. The original goal of that club was mostly to accumulate a number of memoirs to eventually be bound into a book and passed down to children and grandchildren. The posts here all replied to the prompts given by the club. Thus, the name – A.PROMPTreply.
However, as another move has now happened to me and I find myself in a new place and removed from my club, it’s time to make a fresh start on here too. Though I will still be responding to prompts from that club (I’m going to attend via teleconferencing means at times) and the new writing club I intend to set up here in my new location, I’m also going to use this little blog of mine to just write on things that come to mind and share some of my photos as I continue to discover my new area on the shore of Lake Erie.
Thanks for taking the time to share a little of this blogging journey with me!
