My 1st Blog Experience as a Centipede

By
Home Stager with LMB Design Home Staging & Redesigns

I have attempted to write my 1st blog many, many, many times.  The hours have turned into days and now weeks so I sat here this past weekend very late on Saturday night determined to do it.  Boy, was I given a surprise visit....yes, as I sat in my office staring at my Active Rain profile I suddenly realized I was not alone! AH! A CENTIPEDE SQUIRMING AROUND! I was out of my chair within seconds to find any bug spray I can get my hands on and said good bye to my friend and my attempt to write my 1st blog (again).

I found this article and thought it was worth showing you what the intruder looked like. 

  Centipede

There are many kinds of centipedes but all of them are more or less wormlike and have a flattened body. The largest centipede inhabits the tropics of Central America. Scolopendra gigantca is its name and when fully mature will attain a length of 12 inches. A closely related centipede, Scolopendra heros, occurs in Texas and may be over 5 inches long when full grown. (Stuart, 1997) Article was taken from the Texas Agricultrual Extension Service at the Texas A&M University System.

 

 

This centipede has been on my mind since Saturday and as I was pondering it occurred to me that I AM JUST LIKE A CENTIPEDE! My Active Rain profile has been active for several weeks now but I have behaved just like a centipede.  With my antenna up in the air I have been crawling around very determined reading blogs, posts after posts after posts, then comments, comments, comments, join groups, read posts, and so on...

That centipede in me is gone! So here it goes my 1st Blog:

Hello! I am a new member to the Active Rain community and VERY new to blogging! I am thrilled to be part of this amazing group and look forward to the new friendships, learning & networking opportunities especially in my community of San Antonio & Helotes TEXAS.  Thank you to everyone for the warm welcome and especially Cindy Lin who is a fantastic mentor and coach. 

It is incredible how many people are willing to share out there!
