Okay, so I admit to being a Blogging U addict.  First time around I couldn’t find the Commons.  Now I can!  So much for being a fast learner.

Why did I enroll in my 4th5th (?) Blogging U class?

  1. I need someone to give me a push.
  2. I like group projects.
  3. I like the Commons.
  4. I like seeing names of bloggers whom I have met before.
  5. I like meeting new bloggers, whom I have reasonable expectations of meeting again.
  6. I’m attached to the Blogging U instructors. They are the moorings for my anchor.

Before I began in blogging groups, I had the concept of blogging as writing, but I had no idea of the amount of time I would spend in getting acquainted with others.  What were “likes?”  What about comments?  What are followers?  Now I spend more time in making contacts than in writing blogs.  And enjoy it!  But I didn’t before I knew how much WP cares about offering ways (including the University courses) to help bloggers bond with each other.  I felt like a kite with a whirly tail in uncharted cyberspace wondering what was going on around me.

Classmates, I hope you will be curious enough about me to go to my About page, visit my blog, and browse as you wish.  Personal information about me will be found in that way.  It probably will not take long to find that I am pretty much the “granny” in the group since I am eighty-one years old.  But you will also find that I have a wide range of writing styles – from dead serious to deadpan funny.  And I might crack a smile on occasion!  Meanwhile from the King and I:  “Getting to know you, getting to know all about you.  Getting to like you, getting to hope you like me. . .”

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Way to go Oneta 🙂
    I had to exercise some restraint to keep myself from enrolling in my 3rd Blogging 101 (for now 😉 ). But I will surely return later on the year , as it is so true that we can learn so much and the atmosphere over there is so welcoming .
    Wishing you a very good “course” and a Healthy and Happy 2016
    Turtle Hugs

  2. TH is a lovely introduction. This sentence caught my eye: “I felt like a kite with a whirly tail in uncharted cyberspace wondering what was going on around me.” I wish you many blessings as you blog.

  3. I am sad that I am not in class. By the time I got round to registering it was full and the doors were shut 😑 Well I shall enjoy reading other people’s work.

    No way! I’m in Blogging 101 again too! It really is too much fun to only do once. 🙂
    While I’m here, I thought I’d let you know that I tagged you in my “getting to know you” challenge. You are one blogger I would definitely want to get to know more. You’ve been such a supporter of my blog and are such a super sweet person! Here’s the link if you want to check it out
    Good luck with yet another round of Blogging 101!

    Please can you advise me how your are in 101 Blogging again. I indicated I would value going on as I love the group activity but nothing has ever happened. Advice welcomed. Cheers!

      Faye, I have always enrolled at the first announcement. I didn’t realize it was really necessary. I didn’t know there was a “closed” class number, but I see by comments that some have been closed out. I’m glad to be following; that won’t be closed!

  6. Dawn Marie says:

    Oneta, I too love the Blogging U classes. I was so close to registering for my third 101 but there are just toot-toot many items already in my plate! I promise to follow your trail as you journey through the course! Hugs & Blessings!!

    • oneta hayes says:

      Maybe closing the class at a certain number of enrollees is a new policy. I might not get another chance to hop in. I didn’t do the lesson today because I do not want to change my title and tag line. Dawn Marie, you are in the alumni group, aren’t you?.
