The Subject of Your First Post

The other day, I took the time to review all the posts I have made on WordPress — from the most recent to the very first. Of all the things I could have shared — for some reason, my first post was about THE ARTICHOKE (my first experience eating an artichoke). I don’t know why this particular experience came to my mind as the starting point for my blog but I’m sure there is probably a subconscious reason for it. How about you? What was the subject for your first post?

I don’t know what it is… I just have this attraction for photographing artichokes. 🙂

  2. Wonderful, Emily, I adore the purple of the artichoke and the angle of your shot, and a love that your first post was about artichokes. I bet not too many people can boast that! My first post on my nature blog was a reaction to returning to the concrete jungle of NYC after a blissful vacation in the wide open spaces of California. My first post on my travel blog was a realisation that I’d travelled extensively for years and had neither written about my adventures or taken any photographs.
    I’ve been making up for it ever since 🙂

  3. I ❤ Artichokes! Their flowers are some of my favorites, with that electric purple color. I can see why you chose them for one of your first posts. If I'd have thought of it at the time, they may have been my first one, but sadly they were not…

    • Thank you for your visit, Brandon. I’m glad you were able to learn something new from my blog. The artichoke is a very interesting and tasty flower bud. The bud eventually turns into a flower if you don’t harvest it.

  4. You know, I don’t think I’ve ever photographed an artichoke 🙂 Mine was a picture of St Paul’s and the Millennium bridge. I’m not sure why, it’s not even a particular favourite of mine.

    • After seeing your beautifully, amazing travel photos, I can understand why your first post would be about travel destinations. I think subconsciously, the subject mean a lot more to us than what it is. At least that’s what I think… 😉

    • Hi Maggie, thanks for visiting my blog and the nice comment. I’m glad now you know what an artichoke flower looks like. 🙂

    • Yup! My avatar came from the photos I shot for my first post. And nice observation Sasi… I never made the foodie connection until you mentioned it. Thanks! 🙂

  5. Great shots. My first post, after the obligatory “Welcome to my blog” post, was a haiku dedicated to a bodily function – “Haiku for a Poo”.

    • Thanks Fergie for sharing. Great photo and words. I really like your photography style and look forward to seeing more. 🙂

  6. What an impressive shots.
    My first post was an architecture photo.I would post about various buildings but I changed the theme to my diary.It’s the best way to keep it up.

    • That’s right. I remember when I first started following your blog, you were just switching over. Actually, I’m glad you switched. I really enjoy seeing your side of the world and your adorable kids. 🙂

  7. What delicious shots! An unusual subject. I remember that I wrote about outer space in my first blog post!

  8. Cool photos..Emily! I can understand how they would interest you, but then you can make anything look beautiful!

    • Aww… thanks Roberta for the wonderful praise. Your supportive comments definitely is a great motivator for me to do better. 🙂

  9. And why not, they’re the most gorgeous green and you photograph them beautifully. I wrote about our lemon tree, so I have an affinity for plant life myself!

    • Thank you. Actually, I was attracted to your blog name and lemon image. That’s another subject that is a lot like the artichoke. You can create so many wonderful things with it. 🙂

  10. Simply, the photos I picked were my favorites of the moment. I had just gone to an evening Italian Festival at the Church my nephews attend. I particularly liked the way my camera responded to the challenge. Perhaps some photographic skill was involved as well. Later on I have been picking posts as ideas strike or inspiration calls from my collection of images. Artichokes? I’m sure I have a photo of an artichoke somewhere. My database should allow me to find it. We saw them growing in California. Of course I didn’t think it was photogenic as I have only seen the ripened product and not the flower.

    • I remember seeing a lot of artichoke fields when I was in California long ago. That was the first time I’ve ever seen a real artichoke plant and was amazed by it. Maybe that’s where I got my attraction for them from. 🙂
