My blog began a little over 8 months ago with my ‘About Me’ page, starting with the following –
This site was created to share my life; my life filled with failures, disappointments and successes. Why am I here? I live and do the same as others and I wonder why I am here? Starting this blog at age 55, I am nearer to death than I have ever been, but yet feel I have so much to accomplish and much more to experience.
Today, I write the following –
My purpose when starting this blog was to write one post a day for 365 days. At the time I thought this would be a challenge because quite honestly I did not think I had enough to write about – I was wrong. I started writing and ideas for posts came to my mind and I just kept writing. My first post was titled ‘Hello world, this is my blog.‘; it was very short and received 3 likes – since then I have written 279 posts.
I being a detailed person had logic behind when I published specific posts. I have timelines with my posts and I have a reason for the sequence of my posts related to these timelines. Initially my thought was to write about my past life events in a year’s time. This ‘past life’ series will end sooner than I anticipated; sometime in March. Then there is the current life timeline, those events and experiences that are taking place in my current life; the here and now. I also am writing a timeline about the future; the moving to the next chapter of my life, this continues to unfold with each passing day. I believe the next chapter, specifically moving to a different location will occur soon after my 1 year blog anniversary.
The past events of my life are what I started with when beginning this blog and because of that subject I was reluctant in exposing my true identity. I was concerned with what you the readers would think about me and also my writing. I never really have written to the degree I have on this blog. I was nervous about the reactions, the feelings and thinking of others with regards to me.
Now over 8 months later I have realized fellow bloggers are supportive of me, have welcomed me and appreciate my writings. Because of this I decided to expose myself, my identity, to you my fellow bloggers. But a course I am not doing it all in one post, I still have 3 months to write a post a day.
So I will write a series of posts to expose me – my identity to you the blogger world.
This post is disclosing my real name. You may refer to me by my real name or ‘spear’. (I have grown accustomed to spear and like it)
I look forward to exposing more of me in the near future.
