I never thought I’d share so much of my life online, but I’ve always wanted to be published. So here I am celebrating four years of blogging with over 1100 posts. And now I’m all over the internet.

At first I thought I was blogging for me. A way to keep track of the things I do and places I go. Then people began to actually read what I wrote sometimes leaving encouraging comments. I even get emails from people asking about the places I’ve seen and written about. Now I realize I’m actually writing for you. Sharing information and experiences in the hopes of helping others enjoy a special place, or at least allowing you to live vicariously through my words and photos.

And I’d like to think my photos have improved over the years of practice. I started with a Brownie Box at age nine. This latest DSLR has really been a challenge and I still have much to learn. Thinking of taking a photography class so I know just what the camera is capable of.

Networking has been the hugest opportunity to learn about blogging and how to get my content out there. Everything I read lists good content as the most important and I keep working to improve that.

The best part of blogging has been getting to know all of you, and meeting some of you in person. Something I hope to continue to do. I might not have gone to South Africa without knowing the cyber friends who live there. I want to travel and meet more of you along my journeys.

The next step is being paid or at least subsidized to travel and write making my dream continue to come true.

Thank you all for following along. Plus a special thanks to FabGrandma who encouraged me to start blogging and has been my mentor ever since.
