What? Me a blogger? Um, don’t think so.


This blogging world is a little overwhelming for someone who doesn’t enjoy tech-stuff.  But I love the idea of community, so it drives me to discover and charter new territories in my twentieth-century brain.  Don’t get me wrong…I love learning and new ideas and even change.  But I’m also a creative who would rather get to know someone face to face than in cyber space.  However, the idea and potential of getting to know a world of people in different states and countriies (that I didn’t get to know by traveling there) intrigues me.  Plus, I love the fact that I can turn this blog into a vlog.  I can talk directly WITH you, my new community of friends!  Nice!

So, on a day where twenty-thousand things needed to get done, I sat in front of this computer for going on five hours, trying to learn all about the dashboard, tag surfers, Akismet stats, widgets, domain mapping, blogroll, Plinky, Zementa and Gravatar.  No wonder I feel like…a blogroll left in water too long? (mush)

Here’s to a new adventure full of shared stories and life!


About lauriebarkercopeland

I'm just like you, but totally unique. We have things in common, but we are all God's one-of-a-kind creatures. I enjoy finding The Funny in life when it gets messy. And we all know how life can get messy, right? Some of the things I love: God, family, friends, storytelling, community, nature, the arts, beauty, travel, fun and games, learning, the study of the personalities, teenagers, acting, writing and missions. More specifically: the mountains, the beach, breathing clean air, traveling to new places, experiences, deep conversations, appreciating the minute in nature, lunching with girlfriends, practicing sensing, predicting trends, taking a few risks along the way. I hate routine, so starting (and keeping up) this vlog is risky for me...but I love community (and a few risks), so I'm going for it! I hope you join me and we can have some Serious Fun together!

  1. Love your “ode to your knee”……I wish I’d thought of an “ode to my old eyes” because now, with cataracs removed I can see like I was 16 again….so I’ve forgotten about those old cloudy, squinting, needing-very-large-print eyes!

    My “breezy moment” was driving my granddaughter, Alli, from her basketball game (where she made a couple of baskets and always plays with passion and skill) to her “hoops” class. She told me about talking to a missionary from Greece, but of Albanian birth, about how God uses “ordinary people” all the time to do His will on earth. She, only 13 years old, was very captivated by the conversation and it seemed to impress her….That was the best part for me…breezy, I guess!

    • Donna Lee, I almost didn’t see your comment here! Thanks so much for checking in with me! I LOVE what you said about Alli and her comments. Oh, there is nothing, nothing like seeing God in a person so young! A breezy, but unforgettable moment, indeed!!!
