I guess I am the only one truly impressed with this feat. When I hit the button to publish, no confetti fell from the sky nor did some band strike up the music. It was just me sitting with my laptop and a total feeling of satisfaction.
I can say with full authority, that I had no idea what I was getting into when I started this. It was kind of like my turning 70, I truly did not plan for this to happen. I thought I would put up some pictures of the adventures I was having as I was spending my summer in Alaska and turning 70 while I was there.
My original purpose was to communicate with my family in a simple fashion, so I did not feel the need to call everyone regarding my circumstances. I found that I was getting way more feedback from strangers, than loved ones. I truly have been enjoying the process of the research and the photography and the writing. I also think some of my skills in these areas has improved.
I did not expect this to become almost like a part-time job for me. I fully intended to stop when I left Alaska, that is no longer the case. I have jumped into a bloggers universe and am trying to follow-up on a couple of challenges.
I am working on a weekly photography challenge and a daily color challenge. The color challenge last for only 120 days otherwise that would take over everything else. I am still doing some of my travel blogging. In my case it all ties into my age, not getting any younger, and the adventures I am still in search of.
I hope that readers will continue on my adventures and I hope I inspire some of you to take your own adventures, however that presents itself to you. Huge “Thank You” if you have read and or commented or like any of my posts. Please stay with me for I truly feel “the best is yet to come.”
