In a hope to continue jump starting my writing on this blog I decided to sign up for a Blogging 101 course through The Daily Post. I have blogged off and on for many years now but only seriously thought about putting my blog together about 3 years ago (that wasn’t for family travel/photo purposes).
For some quick details about myself check out my about page.
Now on to the more meaningful question about why I am blogging, what will I be blogging about. The first question is an easy one about why/what I am blogging about since I changed how I would be using this site a couple of months back and wrote about it. The short answer is I am blogging as a way to share interesting stories and thoughts. The topics will probably be a range of things that I find interesting and will probably be clearer as I post more often so stay tuned.
If you have followed along you might have realized I have posted more often. You might have also noticed that I am not always writing a lot and just posting interesting things (e.g., videos, writings, quotes).
So why the change?
About a month ago a friend of mine shared with me a new site he stumbled upon called Known. I was very intrigued as i am with most things and signed up to get a better idea of how it worked and what you could do with it. The main use (and tagline) is to have a place for sharing content and discussing ideas. I thought the idea is great and probably has a good use for a number of people. Then as I was going to make my first post I realized I already have a place to do that and that is here on thisWordPress blog. All of their selling points of publishing words, pictures, podcasts and sharing them with the networks you use is exactly what I can do with this site today. So instead of having another site with just random things I find interesting I figured I should just do that here. So there you have it, that is why I have changed what I post and I hope you have found some of the new things interesting.

How I forgot to write by Jory MacKay- Very well written article and the quote rings true for lots of things not just writing.
