Here’s today’s Daily Prompt Challenge: Hindsight. Now that you’ve got some blogging experience under your belt, re-write your first post.
Oh, boy…..Haven’t looked at this post since I wrote it. I was almost afraid to. But, it wasn’t quite as abysmal as I had feared. (Yay for me) I had forgotten that there was a less than flattering picture of me there, so I started by replacing it with my adorkable clip art avatar. Isn’t she precious?

The Cheeky Diva
Kind of says it all doesn’t it? I am a walking encyclopedia of worthless knowledge and mis-information. I can teach you how to bake the mostest delish chocolate cake, build a cathedral out of toothpicks or find the perfect husband. It is my lifelong dream to have you squirt milk out of your nose while you read my dog training tips.
You will also get the benefit of my shrieking and oh so damn introspective mid-life crisis. I will be your champion as you wade through the muddy waters of middle age.
We will fight our battles with gravity and brittle bones together. Along with the laughs, groans and eyerolls, I hope that you will find something here to inspire you to try something different, like I’m doing right now! YIKES!
So hop on the cosmic wagon train and shake your honey buns with The Cheeky Diva

You will notice that I didn’t change much. My writing style is much the same, but it’s the “blogging” format itself that I’m much more familiar with now. Adding pictures, links, videos and related articles are just a few of the things I learned well after this very first post. This format is the third theme I’ve tried, and I have lots of fun clicky things in my sidebar now that couldn’t have been there when this all started. While the bones of The Cheeky Diva are much the same. OY! ~ In more ways than one. I have learned that you can teach an old diva new tricks, and I love learning more and using them to dazzle my poor readers as much as I can with them! So thanks to everyone who has hopped on the cosmic wagon train and is still riding!
