Ahhh, my very first blog post.

I’m not sure why, but now felt like the right time to get a blog of my own up and running.  Honestly, the hardest part is finding a name that hasn’t already been taken.

I picked “Historicalness” since I love history and figure that many of my posts will have some historical theme, but I guess time will tell.  I was pretty sure “Historicalness” wasn’t actually a word, but apparently it is.  Thanks to my friends at TheFreeDictionary.com, I learned it’s a noun meaning “the state of having in fact existed in the past” and “significance owing to its history”.

Not too shabby.  Gotta remember it for Scrabble.
