A Blog Post Choice Conundrum and How I Resolved It – January 6, 2020

Update – corrected 2019 to 2020.

My next post is my weekly Mississippi Mondays post. I decided to go with a choice that I realized would be a lot harder to research than expected when I first started looking for information. About halfway through, it became obvious I would not find much on my choice in Como, Panola County, Mississippi. I had a brief debate with myself with changing to another choice. The debate was brief because to me it quickly became obvious I had picked what felt like the choice I should go with. This is unlike other times where I spent 2 plus hours creating a post and decided it wasn’t the post I should use at the time.

The thought that came to my mind is this location was as deserving of a mention as those locations that have plenty of sites I can link to them or that are well-known. The fact it didn’t have very many links was why I believed I should post about the location. There are plenty of locations in Wichita that aren’t well-known; same for my hometown. In some of the locations, they are known to a handful of people. For a long-time, I didn’t know about Wichita’s troll – https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/the-wichita-troll-wichita-kansas which will be a future Kansas Tuesdays post.

Part of my theme posts is to include places, things, and other items that may not get a lot of coverage. I often cover things that are well-known even if it’s only to locals.  Having grown up before the Internet was a thing, my parents did a fair amount of traveling on the rare occasions when they had extra money. I saw places because my parents asked locals if there were things to see or do. We saw ghost towns, the unsinkable Molly Brown’s house in Colorado, not the famous ones in Denver, that had been destroyed by vandals, a colorful house that supposed had a couple one of which was blind and the other was deaf – don’t remember enough details, but I believe one of the couple was only half blind or deaf. Been looking for the house for many years as I don’t recall what state it was located.
