Blogging 101, Day six: Write to Your Dream Reader: – Better late than never!
So who is my dream reader? Since this is all still new to me, I can’t say for sure who my dream reader would be. I have a few ideas though.
The “I agree with you” reader:
In the hope that I am not alone in my thoughts, I write to you that agree with me. You have the same vision that the world, our country, your town, our lives, the schools or whatever can be better. You would also agree with me that most of this is not heading in that direction. It’s not that it’s all doomsday stuff, just things are not quite right. Here is a list of things you would agree with: Read the rest of this entry »
So, you blog now?
What was on my mind when I started this blog? I have no idea! At the time I was mad at life. Not in the “woe is me” kind of way. I just found myself focusing on all the little things throughout my day. Mainly at work, since it takes a large percentage of our lives. I remember saying to myself “I hate my job!” As soon as I said that another voice slapped me upside the head. “I don’t hate my job. I love what I do”. I just let all the little things build up to the point that I couldn’t focus on each problem / solution. It was just a big jumble of AHHHH!

Have you ever had one of those “Who am I and where am I at?” moments? There were plenty of those mornings (early mornings) in my 20’s where I have asked that question. This may have been due to the mass quantities of cereal malt beverages that were consumed the night before. With each shot I took, a little closer to the answer of that question. As soon as I was close to the end of the quest, BOOM! There’s the morning. The rudely bright sun shining into the window (of my car) erasing all the progress from the night before. Forced to go through the day preparing to join the quest for the answer. Each day and night teaching me what I already knew. What did I find out then?
- I’m invincible!
- Transferring from the University as a music education major to the “College of Life” was the best decision I could’ve ever made!
- I can stay and up party to 4am and be at work at 7 without a problem.
- Being single, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.”
- Being in a relationship, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.”
- Government and politics, boring! (Vote for George Clinton, “funk you very much!”)
- Money, ya I got it! I’ve got 3 major credit cards and 5 store cards that say I do!
Looking back now at 36, what did I learn? Read the rest of this entry »
