Sitting here on the Queens Birthday long weekend I’ve decided to join the ranks of regular blogger. Why? because there is so much happening and so many people to keep in touch with on both the personal and professional fronts.
I was going to spend the time catching up by writing to friends that are long overdue a note from me, this was also my plan at Christmas and at Easter- but it never happened! Time is marching by and today is the last day of the long weekend and there is no way I am going to be able to get everything done.
I then had a light bulb moment (yes, I am a slow learned, I know people have been blogging for years!) – a blog would solve some of my problems. Most people are on the internet – but not all on Facebook. I tried running a blog once before but it was not set up in an easy format and made it hard for people to interact by posting comments.
This blog is going to be taking the format of a journal of sorts but not quite. I plan to blog about what I am involved with at any given time – this means it will cut across business and personal aspects as well as include Dragons Abreast which is my charity of choice and something that I am very passionate about. I’ll be sharing thoughts on a variety of topics – all things that are important to me.
For several years now I have grappled with keeping each area of my life separate but have now come to the happy conclusion that I am who I am because of all these areas of my life – so I am embracing them all together.
I hope it is going to prove a great way to keep in touch, share ideas and generally reach out to each other across the globe.
So whether you are a business associate, a long time (or new) friend or a member of Dragons Abreast or a Dragon Sister, I do hope you will let me know what you think of my blog as I go along.
