Welcome to Passionate Reflection! I am so glad you stopped by and I hope you stay awhile.
I have been working on building this blog for several months now. It all began when I started investigating ways to supplement my family’s income. My options to do so are limited but I need to do something to help out. Working outside of the home isn’t realistic. I barely get by on the time that I do have since I added homeschooling to my many duties as a wife and mother. Working at home seemed to be my only option and I was able to that for quite some time, but then a neck injury took my ability to sit at the computer for long periods of time. Then, I found blogging and Passionate Reflection was born!
Quite a bit of it has changed since I began. I added categories. I removed categories. I added some back then removed them again….it is very tedious. Building a blog site takes a lot of time and patience. Especially if, like me, you know very little about any of it. HTML, CSS, widgets, plug-ins….wow is there a lot to learn and know!
But so far I am loving it. The flexibility is great. I can write twice a week, once a week, or even once a month. It is completely up to me and I don’t have to sit at the computer. I can post from my iPad! No boss. No set hours. And I get to share my views in a way I just couldn’t do before. I have had this gnawing feeling inside that I need to speak up and help get our society back on track. We have fallen so far away from the principals and values that make this country great. And although I know I am just one, small voice, I am hoping that I can reach as many people as possible in order to make a difference.
This is such a huge step for me. One of my biggest weaknesses is not following through on things. In fact, I have to admit this is one of the reasons I haven’t published publicly for so long. I almost gave up several times. My goal was to publish the first weekend in October. Then I told myself by Halloween. Then it was Thanksgiving. Christmas was becoming my last hope and now that too has passed. As I sit here and type, my mind is saying just wait until after the new year. There is also that part of me that doesn’t believe I will ever succeed and nobody is going to read my blog so I wonder why I am even bothering.
Well, I’m bothering! If I fail, I fail. At least I can say I tried. So here goes nothing/everything! Welcome aboard. I hope you enjoy the ride 🙂
