In early 2012, I started my first blog through Blogger. It was called, Oh the things I ponder (now that I think of it, the name reminds me of the Dr. Seuss book, Oh the places you’ll go). With thoughts and ideas constantly bouncing around in my mind, I wanted a place where I could write everything down in a concise, organized manner. Long story short, that failed after a few posts…
I decided to try again after I graduated from college. I thought, “Now I’ll finally have time to write something other than papers!” But, that was actually just a naive comment by a recent grad between jobs. Actually, I probably could have managed to write more in college, before the full-time job.
Anyway, instead of sticking with my blog on Blogger, I went “classy” and hit-up WordPress instead. That’s where all the sophisticated, serious bloggers went, right?
The name “Satisfaction Bought It Back” was based on the ending to a saying I always hated beforehand: “Curiosity killed the cat.” It’s silly, but as a cat lover, I wasn’t too happy about a saying that involved a dead cat.
My fabulous cousin was the one to change that for me when she responded to, “You know what they say, curiosity killed the cat” with, “Well satisfaction bought it back.”
With my name all figured out, I got to writing about any and everything that was on my mind. From poetry and stories to the everyday goings-on in my life.
Well, there you have it. The “About This Blog” section is complete. And, now that you know a little bit about the blog, you can browse through the randomness with some peace of mind. Enjoy!
