As I make my second baby step in this journey, I would feel remiss if I didn’t give a few thank you nods…
First, I have to thank Claire Dunn. She started a blog on Blogspot a few months ago called LoungeHaus to share her thoughts and passions, mostly about fashion. She was the first person to really get me thinking about expressing myself in this medium. She also showed me how easy it really is. Just choose a mechanism like WordPress or Blogspot and get to it! She also introduced me to Zen Habits.
Segue complete, thanks go out to Zen Habits. What a refreshing site! It has good information, is not visually noisy, and helps me develop a well needed sense of calm. The content is updated at a reasonable pace, so the reader doesn’t feel overwhelmed or on the contrary starved. Great job.
Lastly, I have to thank Karol Gajda. I’ve never met the guy, and I found his site, RediculouslyExtraordinary.com, through Zen Habits. His writings were the final inspiration for me to do this…to just get off my ass and do something. Whether masterpiece or master failure, reading his stuff incited me to put finger tips to keys and just start expressing. No master plan needed – just find my voice and niche as I go. So, thank you, Karol!
That about wraps it up this time. If you have somehow found this, thank you for reading. Find me on Twitter too. Next time, I think I’ll get to the important stuff like a new-found beer that I highly recommend – Hirschbrau Hefeweisse. After all, what’s better to accompany writing (or Karaoke for that matter…more on that later too) than a good, newly discovered beer?
Thanks for rocking Michael!
