As I start my adventure into the blogging world, I am faced with two fears. 1. People do not care what I think 2. People will know what is going on inside my head. It is a typical catch-22 situation.
So why have a blog? I am an out-of-work English teacher, or possibly ex-teacher (if you see any grammatical mistakes, perhaps that is why) trying to start my own small business. I have spent the last year with my insane cat, needy dog, interesting husband, and crazy son. It has been amazing, and I am not saying that sarcastically. At the same time, life’s hurdles have thrown me off from time to time. Since writing is therapeutic, perhaps this will keep me sane.
My grandmother likes to give Word Gifts, and these have helped me cope with some of the more challenging obstacles that I have faced. Word Gifts are pieces of advice or adages that help make things more clear. I like to think of it as a way to look at the positives in life. (This is also what my small buisness is somewhat about (slideshows and personalized film) In an imagry-focused society with an attention span of a five-year-old, I want to expand on these word gifts with media. With every Word Gift, I will be posting a picture or video that helps to describe it. My first Word Gift is…. now I’m coming up blank. This is not off to a good start.
