It's hard to believe I have been blogging since 2010. Back then, I didn't even really know what a blog was but thought it would be a fun way to connect with other adoptive mamas. And, a nice way to practice my writing skills. (And, yes, that last line is an intentional fragment and not a reflection of my actual writing skills.)
Not only have I forged some amazing friendships with other families journeying along the adoption path, I have discovered a whole new world. Blogging, writing, publishing, YouTube video promos ... it has all been rather mind-blowing, to say the least. Now that my eyes have been dazzled by all of this, I have decided to dive head-first into its depths and saturate myself in its literary/technological waters.
So I'm quitting my job.
Well, actually I am, but not totally.
Okay, it's kind of complicated and I can't say I really understand how this is all going to work, but I did quit my teaching job.
I'm more like a free-lance educator now.
Whatever that means.
After twenty-three years of teaching, I am DONE with addressing a class, slaving over lesson plans, and stocking up on red correcting pens.
Mostly, I'm just done with being locked in a classroom for x amount of hours per day and released when the school bell rings.
But, I still like teaching.
Mostly, I enjoy the kids.
Love those kiddos!!!
(Most of them, at least.)
Okay, okay, ALL of them!
I think I just need a break.
...back to my original thread...
I am stepping into the blogging world to see where it takes me. In two weeks, I will launch by enrolling in a FREE blogging course called, "The Profitable Blogging Summit" from May 16 - 20.
And when I learn everything there is to learn
and get rich and famous,
you can say you knew me here first.
