Getting off the ground

06 Oct

My intention with this blog is not only to grow my skill for blogging, but also to share my passion for chocolate; good, great, and incredible chocolate. This will quite literally be my first post ever, prepared to be dazzled… or disappointed.

I’m likely to have a primary focus on commercially available chocolate (i.e. chocolate that can be bought in retail stores), also probably mostly dark chocolate, as a preference. Though I will most definitely expand this as I go on.

I’ll polish this more later but in addition to a short blurb and picture of my sampling, I’ll review with a series of arbitrary and non-scientific 1-10 rating scales: Color/appearance, texture, taste, and “fun factor.”

That’s all for today.

I’ll leave you with this quote from one of my favorite retired humor columnists.

“My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished 2 bags of M&M’s and a chocolate cake. I feel better already.”

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any helpful hints for
    aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that
    I’m completely confused .. Any ideas? Thanks!

      I’m just starting off with my first blog in about 5-6 years. So far wordpress has been a great resource.
