I live in the Mohawk Valley and I like it. I started this blog thinking I would highlight community events, cultural attractions and local businesses. I still do that BUT…
I like to post every day. It is difficult to go to an event, attraction or business every day. So I started doing posts about walks or runs I took. Then I discovered it is a lot of fun to write about cheesy movies I see. And various other nonsense.
As time went on I came up with a few features I like to fall back on: Wrist to Forehead Sunday, Middle-aged Musings Monday (or Mid-week Middle-aged Musings), Non-Sequitur Thursday, my personal favorite Lame Post Friday, and Running Commentary Saturday. There’s also Monster Movie Monday, Menu Monday and Wuss Out Wednesday. And sometimes the Tuesday or Thursday Trudge. Sometimes, I confess, I just write a post about how I can’t seem to write a post that day.
Full disclosure: I had been writing this blog going on two years before I wrote an “About,” and this isn’t it. I wrote it in a notebook which I mislaid before I got around to typing it in. In fact, I shouldn’t be typing this now, because as we speak I’m supposed to be composing today’s post. Did I mention that today is Wrist to Forehead Sunday?

I just read your blog….thanks for the critique. When one creates it’s always encouraging to get feedback. D. Ingerick
I really enjoyed the exhibit.
Hey MVG, I must nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Because you do. Me. Inspire, that is. Rules are in my post. http://markbialczak.com/2015/02/26/i-feel-inspired-at-my-second-blogging-anniversary-so-i-pass-it-along/
Thank you for the nomination! Only I am not sure I can nominate 15 other bloggers. I am sadly remiss about reading others’ work. Perhaps I’ll write a blog post about that.
See. I gave you a post idea. You’re welcome. Click on the other bloggers I nominated and go from there, is another suggestion, MVG.
I followed you here from posts on the Modern Pholosopher. If you like that crazy guy you must be alright!
I guess all the cool bloggers follow the Modern Philosopher.
Thank you for the super article you submitted to Mohawk Valley Living, January Issue!

I love your place! I hope to bring some of my friends and family by soon. For one reason, it will make a good blog post.
The Director of Middleville is Sandra Zaffarano – you got that totally wrong!
How dreadfully embarrassing.
About pages are important. Before commenting, I always read them. 🙂
I never thought of doing that. I just comment willy-nilly. I’ll start looking at About pages next time. Thanks!
Yes. Check mine and get surprised. Happy Saturday!
I like fun. When started blogging someone told me I should have a theme to post about. And stay on target.
Best advice I ever got. Because I said, “NO!” I will post about anything and everything. Mostly fun stuff — for me anyway. 🙂
Advice is a funny thing. Oscar Wilde said the best thing to do with good advice was to immediately pass it on. Or words to that effect.
