So I sat for a while sipping coffee and pondered what should be my first post.
Likely almost everyone reading this post will be a friend of mine. Or an acquaintance. So they know that I lost my wife two years ago, they know how that shattered my world, they know that I am struggling to find a purpose in life. They know I have two doggies, Freya and Vegas. They know I’m an Aquarius, a gamer, a writer and a traveler. They know my life is in transition. They just don’t know how it will all turn out.
The truth is, neither do I.
I have no idea what the next year will be like. Will I be able to eat better, exercise, lose weight? Will I find love again? Will I be able to refocus and succeed as a writer? Will I remember where I put the car keys?
So why a blog?
First off, it’s because of a job I want very badly. A paid blogging position. Richmond Tourism. Imagine this: I get money to eat and write about it? Me. An average Joe. How cool would that be? How perfect is this job?
But that’s not the entire reason. I want to get back into writing, fall back in love with it. I want to talk about my writing. I want to travel and write about my adventures. I want to write reviews. I want to rant and rave again. I want to pop off on pop culture. I want to entertain and enlighten and empower.
And I want to be READ.
I also want to hear people’s opinions, what they think I got right and what they think I got wrong. I want to start a conversation or create a space to share reviews, travel, whatever.
So. 1 Blog per day. Every day. For a month. Maybe longer. Something about life or what I observe or what I feel. A personal blog. Not a business blog, not a political blog, not a food blog, though I may have those things in here at some point.
A blog about me.
