15 Years A Blogger
I started blogging with zero idea on where it would lead me but I loved that it was something that I could call my own. I was intrigued by the medium of blogging and wanted to remain connected to the tech industry after it completely imploded alongside the subprime mortgage crisis. I could write about anything I wanted to and I have.
These past 15 years have been my thoughts on investing, tech companies, the state of the union, recipes, raising kids, restaurants, theater, design, books, travel, art, women entrepreneurs, trends and pretty much everything that rattles around my head.
What came out of these 15 years are a few things that just evolved without much planning. I reinvented my career although I admit I was hoping that blogging would take me down a new career path….and it did. I became a voice for women and for that, I am incredibly grateful. Times are changing for women and I feel very much a part of this movement. I have been able to connect with people from all verticals of life. I became a writer although my skills aren’t exactly buttoned up, the words flow through my head to my fingers to the keyboard and it works for me.
When I began blogging I had three kids who were 7, 9 and 11 and under our roof. My life was in a very different stage than it is today. 15 years recorded through a blog that I have shared with anyone who would want to read about what I was thinking about. Our kids are now all under their own roofs and that shifts everything. It is a topic I have written about.
There are times when I can’t get enough of my thoughts out and others where I fear that there is no content left in me but it passes. Blogging for me has been like life, it has its ups and downs but it moves forward. What happens next? More than likely the next 15 years will cover the same topics as the past but just with an older yet constantly changing set of eyes.
