Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

Oh the Things Bloggers Do

My gosh, yesterday I spent a considerable amount of time going through my pantry looking specifically for certain logos and other information on food labels.  Now this is not as easy as it sounds given that we buy little in the way of commercially prepared anything.  Why would I do this and more importantly what does it have to do with blogging?

Like many blogging ideas this one actually started out rather innocently.  In conversation with one of my kids, I learned that the number under the Cor symbol on food products was the group of farmers for that producer.  So all farmers producing for a particular food processing plant within the company will have the same number.  It's really a way of being able to trace the product back to the factory it was processed.  Well this struck me as something many of my readers may not know so I was off to see what other informational tidbits I could glean from food labels.  In short I was on a goose chase for blog fodder.

This is the type of thing bloggers do for blog fodder.  An idea pops up and they run with it.  Sometimes the idea doesn't pan out but often there is enough to get a post or two out of it.  I'm honestly surprises me sometimes the tangents I'm capable of going off on all in the name of blogging!
