I found my passion!
News alert – “Middle-aged woman figures out what she wants to do when she grows up!”
At the press conference, the middle-aged woman gushed, “Wow! I really caught the blogging bug in the past two weeks. It takes a ton of time and there is so very much to learn but, I think I finally found something that feels like play and not work. I found my passion!”
All joking aside, it is true. I have always known that I have a knack for learning new software. Over the years, I have learned a variety of business software and have done several software implementations. Those were probably the only times at work that I could say I was having fun and looked forward to going every day. I usually teach myself through trial and error and the challenge of making something work is exhilarating. My husband always told me that I missed my calling. I should have been in IT.
When I decided to “peek out of my box” and give this blogging thing a try I thought the writing would be the hardest part. I worried that I would run out of ideas. Instead, I found that I have tons of stories jumping around in my head keeping me awake at night. I still have a big concern that I am not a good writer. I tend to get too wordy and don’t use proper sentence structure, and blah, blah, blah. I think I slept through grammar in school. (My Chincoteague Island post had 49 revisions before I had the nerve to publish it.)
What I did not expect is the thrill of setting up a website and learning a new software. It is exiting to not have any idea what I am doing then, BAM, watch it fall into place.
I have a long way to go and a lot to learn. I have many ideas about how I want to change my site. Knowing me, this will be a never-ending work-in-progress or, dare I say, play-in-progress.
For those of you following my blog – Thank You! Thank you for putting up with my trial and error. Thank you for slogging through my less than perfect grammar and sentence structure. Hopefully, as time goes by, I will get better (or find an editor).
