You may have noticed that this post was first made on April Fool’s Day. You may have noticed that, but I didn’t. Not right away.
I’d been thinking for some time of starting a blog, but I was getting hung up on what to name it. Everything good that I could think of was already taken. And may I say right now, some of those people have not updated their blogs in a seriously long time. I checked. Perfectly good, even excellent blog titles are being wasted. This is highly unfair, in my opinion. But I digress.
My intention for a blog was to shed light on the ridiculous, humorous, and foolish things people say or do, myself included. However I also like to cook, and I hoped to include some of my favorite recipes. Finally it dawned on me that, goshdarnit, it’s my site, I can do whatever I darn well please. Which means you’ll get both. Every week you will get at least one recipe. Heck, it may even be a good recipe.
Once I hit upon the idea, the title Feeding on Folly presented itself. I tested it, and lo and behold, it was available.
Only after I posted my first column, “8 Steps to Becoming an Old Lady,” did I discover WordPress includes a default post titled “Hello, World! … This is your first post …” and the date of that post was April Fool’s Day.
What this means, of course, is that the universe has aligned to make Feeding on Folly a success.
Don’t laugh. Stranger things have happened.
Full disclosure: this post was actually written on April 5th, despite what WordPress has to say about it. If that blows you away, well… I have to say, you’re easily blown away.
