"What now? Now I just live...and enjoy"

I'm not going to lie. Blogging is not as easy as I had imagined it to be. The actual writing aspect and posting daily isn't too bad. It's the networking, reaching out, making other blog-friends that takes the effort. I'm not usually one to go out of my way to do such things, but in the blog-world it seems you have to.

In reality, this is parallel to where I am in life now. An almost-professional, looking for contacts, looking for possibilities. Considering becoming a Certified Life Coach which is ALL about networking. No one ever warned me that it really is all about who you know, or at least I didn't take them seriously. And here, now in bloggy-world and the real-world I need to up the ante. Somehow.

Part of it comes from lack of patience in being online. I've never been much of a surfer, and now I'm paddling into the big Internet-ocean. Part of it is because I start classes on Monday and I always kind of shut down right before they begin. I tell myself I need to mentally prepare for all the writing and reading. My last semester as a graduate student (Hallelujah!)

The question is, where can I begin?

Key West, May 2010


  1. Hey! Thanks for dropping by my blog! That's a gorgeous picture.

  2. Thanks! Your posts are quite enlightening :)

  3. It just takes time. Before you know it you will have a bunch of people following your blog. I find the photography the hardest, then the writing - the cooking is easy compared to these!

  4. Ahhhh, that would make sense. Thanks for the tip!
