So this is my first blog posting. No pressure. But it is pressure! There are so many people saying so many things out on the web…who am I to think I might have something to add?
I’ve worked on the actual design to make it look OK, yet I can see that there will need to be a lot more work so that the blog doesn’t look the same as everyone else’s. However, it can be the loveliest site in the world and no one will visit if I have nothing to offer.
So, a little about me: I’m entering my half-century year. I don’t like it. Actually hitting 50 will be another thing but luckily that doesn’t happen until the end of 2008. This fact doesn’t change the reality that I have hit a turning point in my life. How does one know they have hit a turning point? Well, when you quit a fairly new job because it is an awful fit and an awful boss and you have no immediate prospects I suppose “turning point” could be a little euphemistic, but that is what I am calling it. This was my dream job and it crashed and burned. Mostly due to having absolutely no training, high expectations, a young manager and co-workers who were both in the midst of having babies and never being in the office.
I’ve always talked about writing a book. Doesn’t everyone? Again, how do you know you will be any good? All I could think to do was to try my hand at writing everyday to get better at the craft. I imagine I will look back at this drivel and not believe I actually posted some of these beginning entries. You do have to start somewhere….a journey of many miles begins with one step?
