I would have left it at that, that I have the ability, but not the necessity, to post a blog, except that it occurred to me that since no one would actually read a blog that I wrote, it would be the perfect place for posting all those musings that have no other outlet. Accounts of my day that I would share with my husband if I could ever get a word in edgewise. My views on the latest building project at church. Plans to murder people who take my parking space. That sort of thing.
I was almost stopped cold at the necessity of naming my blog. "Blatherings" is already in use on more than one blog. So are "Random Noise" and a few other choices. "Word Salad", however, appeared to be free. It's also appropriate for two reasons: my profession (more about which eventually) and my posting nickname, Coleslaw. So Word Salad it is.
