New blogger looking for readers!

I’m starting a blog to share what I’m learning in life!  I hope it will be inspiring and thought-provoking, and I know that writing words for others to read will force me to clarify my thoughts.  Win-win!  Subscribe to my blog if ur feeling it!

I’m excited to introduce my blog to you and thank you for giving me some of your time!

I used to keep a journal consistently.  For about the first 10 years of my adult life I would fill up one of those wide-ruled composition notebooks every year like clock-work.  I found great value in putting my thoughts in writing.  Journaling was a tool for clarifying my thoughts regarding whatever issue was swirling around in my head.  But even more helpful than journaling was when I wrote something that I intended to ask someone else to read.  When writing something that only I intend to read, I can be lazy at times and not write clearly.  But that tendency goes away when writing something for others to read!  And that’s where YOU come in!

I love to distill the lessons I’m learning in life and to share what I’m learning with others.  I also know that the act of writing something for other people to read gives me incentive to write well.

With that, here is my vision for this blog:  I will share with others the things I am learning, become a better writer and communicator, and gain almost all of the benefits I used to get from journaling…by starting a blog!

That’s basically it!

So, thank you for taking some time to read my blog!  I couldn’t achieve the benefits I hope to without you–a reader.  Just one is all I need, not counting my mom 🙂

Until next time,





How long will my posts be?  I hope to keep my posts distilled and relatively short.  800 to 1000 words which is 3.5 to 4.5 minutes of reading. (this entire post is 505 words)

What will I post about?…  Pretty much anything from soup to nuts that I’m learning in my life and that I think might be helpful to you or you might enjoy reading!

How often will I post? (in other words, will you regret subscribing to my blog? lol)  DOI – Depends on inspiration!  Considering how long it takes me to write something worth reading, I’d be happy with once a month.  I may even post weekly from time to time.  We’ll see.

How long will this blog last?  🙂  Who knows!…  My goal is to write at least two posts (not including this one) and then to write one post about 1) my experience in beginning a blog and 2) my considerations about whether to continue this blog.  That may be the end of my blog.
