Announcing a new blog
dedicated to my favourite hobby
Welcome to Sarah Bowman Answers
The blog of a bicultural 60+
We all see the world through the lenses of our own lives so that is what I am calling this blog as of June 14, 2021, especially with all the photos in the sidebar and at the bottom to show the “lenses” of my life. A new name is called for now that I am also posting answers written by others. But in December 2016 when I set it up, I didn’t know how to post these fancy widgets; all I wanted was a place to collect my internet writings from various forums, the most recent at the time being a Q&A site called Quora.com. People posted questions and I was one of the people who wrote answers. When it came time to choosing a name for my blog, and it came quite early in the process, all I could think of was Sarah Bowman Answers.
In April 2020 I still believed the original name was good because it was my answers and not someone else’s I was posting. However, a year later a discussion on Quora clarified for me that according to Quora’s Terms of Service I had a right to repost answers written by others. Hense the new name. Also, the more I write the more I realize how important one’s life experiences are to the way one sees the world. In addition, pictures are worth a thousand words; hence the photos. Click on them for captions and stories, as the case may be.
For interested parties, except for the “My Life” sidebar on the About page and my profile photo, I took all of these photos myself with my own camera. Let’s see, the photo I am currently using for my profile was taken by my cousin in 2013.
