Currently I listen to podcasts that tell me stories, take me on adventures and recently — help me reevaluate my financial health. Clark Howard’s podcast led me to Choose FI, which led me to a score of others. Listening to real life stories from a wide range of people and the steps they made to
I received a Happy Anniversary greeting from WordPress acknowledging my 5 years of blogging with them. Time has a way of flying by, doesn’t it? Now, since it took me off guard, I didn’t have time to write an acceptance speech. But I want to begin by thanking WordPress who made it all possible. Without
Blogging. It’s sort of surreal. If you’ve done it, you know what I’m talking about. Putting thoughts, ideas, challenges, questions, concerns, issues, photos …out there for the world to see or reply, ignore, spam, comment, enjoy, interact, or possibly dismiss. And yet, we keep doing it. For some of us it’s a daily thing, for

Viewing bloggers’ activities, reading about their history, struggles and successes, reading about their newest venture — all of this takes courage to write and post.
