When did Dome Pondering begin?
Dome Pondering began in 2001 when the art of the blog was not as common as it is in today's world. As a sophomore in high school, I began recording and writing most of the experiences, thoughts, and questions I had in Microsoft Word. I enjoyed writing, and it quickly began to show. As the Word documents grew, a friend recommended several websites that were offering space and banks that organize and save these entries for you. After reviewing these sites, which were the very genesis of what blogs are today, I decided to create my very own site through Microsoft Publisher with Yahoo footing the space as a free server. The initial years were just random thoughts and freestyle writing of your typical teenager.
After the blog sites developed, and the site of the initial Dome Pondering rapidly became outdated in appearance, HTML, available space, and overall capabilities, the DP was then moved to its current home, via Google, where it has been since 2006. Unfortunately, much of what was written before the move has been lost and is now floating around in blogger heaven.
What is the purpose of this blog?
The purpose of this blog is simple, it's a place where yours truly can express thoughts, write creatively, and share with you various experiences as we all run this marathon of life.
Where did the name "Dome Pondering" come from?
Well, after sporting a curly 'fro for a few years, I decided to shave my head for the first time right before I started the DP. As I thought about a name, I rubbed my head - a now bald dome - and I simply went with Dome Pondering. It's been history since.
Hey, I never said it was a good story.
