I was given advice by one of my publishers on blogging and it was simply to post about more than just writing. Make posts about where you’re going and of you having fun. I do not disagree with them at all but my problem is that I am limited to life outside of work and writing.
For the past 4 years I have worked 2 jobs and I am hoping that will stop by the end of next year. I am doing this to help get ahead in life so that I will be able to retire when the time comes. There are too many in education who have put over 30 years into it but are unable to retire. Though I am not as young as I used to be, I am still able to work on the side without it completely wearing me out. I will add that it is tough and I do get tired but I do believe that the sacrifice now will pay off later.
With all that said, I really don’t do a lot outside of what is mentioned. I am also prepping for a new venture that I am not ready to reveal yet but it will require more sacrifice than what is happening now. However, I have wanted to do something like this for a long time now and can now afford to take the risk.
I will try to work on posting more than just work-related and book-related material. Until then I just want to keep thanking all of those who keep coming to my website and reading the blogs. Your support is greatly appreciated.
