Hello hello! Its been quite a while since I’ve done blog posts. I remember when I first started trying to build an online presence. I did so through blogging. However, I never really knew what to blog about. So my blog posts ended up being ramblings from the mind of a person who was dealing with sleep deprivation brought on by child rearing, stress, and the desire to write, write, and write some more. Needless to say my blogging never took off.
Then, upon finishing up my first book “An Unexpected Adventure” and publishing it, I needed a website to help promote it. Thus my next attempt at building an online presence began. I built a website with descriptions of myself and my newly printed book as well as a link to purchase it. As time went on I added testimonials from folks who read “An Unexpected Adventure” and a sneak peak into the first few chapters in the hopes of enticing others to try it out. It was a lovely site, but got very little traffic.
Eventually, I caved and started a Facebook page. Once again, I am faced with what am I going to post? Am I going to post every day? Most importantly, why am I doing this? I never did find a good answer to these questions. Facebook to me is psychologically disturbing. Yes, a person can try to offset the negative with positive but ultimately, what is it doing to one psychologically. In my case, it turned me into a mess. So while I do have a Facebook page, I rarely post to it and I try to avoid Facebook as much as possible. It’s crazy, I know. Unfortunately, this is how I am.
Which brings me to now. Here I am, once again, building a website. My previous one has disappeared due to some dissatisfaction with my previous hosting service. I am back to square one with the same questions as before with the most important question being, “Why have a website at all? What is its purpose?”
Over the next few weeks, as I work to rebuild, I hope to discover an answer to these questions. In the meantime, WELCOME! I am so happy you are interested in me and my stories. I hope to see you many more times in the future.
Until next time, may the dragons you encounter be ones of wisdom of kindness…
