Back To Blogging Day 1: How it all Began

Below was my very first post:

About This Journey - February 18, 2010

I’ve always been a night owl so I thought it made sense to sort of summarize my days & recap my feelings, funny moments and any revelations or epiphanies which I experienced that day. Might be discussion on fb or twitter, things I read, kidisms, networking successes, breakthroughs with my job search, or even the lack there of.

There are so many people I've been "introduced" to in the past few months, as well as long time friends, who have inspired me to take this journey. Now that I've begun there's no time to look back.

Reading it now, I'm not sure I'd change much if I were to re-write it today. I'll admit - for a new blogger, it was brief, but overall, it made perfect sense at the time.

  • I stated my purpose & goals for starting a blog.

  • I published...or shipped if you will & didn't look back. (Linchpin style)

  • I quickly painted the scene of where I was at in life.

  • I started the process of finding my voice. 

It took every moment of the four months prior to decide to take those baby steps. Seven short months later, I'm finding my stride...building stamina and endurance. As an "online writer", (thanks to Patrick Rhone) I'm in this for the long haul.

I am also part of The SITS community on BlogFrog. This is similar to what I share on my blog. My son, at the tender age of 7 or 8, told me I was nocturnal because I stayed up late, mostly blogging or writing. I am proud to be one of the night owls!
