Posts–then and now

In my childhood years, posts were made of metal, tree stumps or planed wood. Their purpose was singular—to anchor a fence. Gate posts were stronger than fence posts, but still called posts. Then I discovered the post office and postman. Although skinny as a fence rail, he wasn’t a post. I decided mailman and mail carrier, his alternate names, fit him much better.

Years whizzed by and Post-It sticky notes revolutionized the office world. No more thumbtacks or push pins needed. Stuck anywhere, they became the posts that fenced the officer worker into a corner or cubicle.

 Ah…then blogs arrived. Computer clicks form a sturdy chain of posts, invisible fencing, and keep the reader corralled until the last word. Blogging. It’s the ultimate post.
