“Like Sam Cooke say change gon’ come nephew
And you better believe that. . .” — I Can Change, by John Legend (feat. Snoop Dogg)
I have been keeping a blog since October of 1998, so that makes this my 13th blogiversary month. To celebrate, I’m changing it up again. When I started out, blogs were more of a personal, online journal where the author would write about their day, their hobbies, their travels, and whatever else they wanted to write about. Blogging was not about generating traffic, revenue or building up a subscriber list. It was about connecting with people online that you might never meet in person.
I started this blog because I found that I was really starting to enjoy writing about personal development, and I needed a place to post that content other than my Freelance writing blog, A Productive Pen. Recently, there have been so many changes going on in my life and I wanted to share the process with you just as I did years ago
with my persona blog called Brnwebgrrl. I’ve heard it said that no one cares about personal blogs anymore, but that does not make any difference to me. I write because I am a writer. I share what I write because I know that there are others out there who might also benefit from my experiences. There are others who just might find in interesting even if it is in a voyeuristic kind of way in what goes on in other people’s lives.
So, I guess this post is sort of a heads-up that things are shifting around here. The posts are going to be a lot more personal as I write about what is happening in my life as it changes. The good thing about the Internet is that if what you are reading doesn’t interest you, you are never more than one click away from something else that suits you better.
If you are interested this will be a web log of my life. You are welcome to join me.
