I really admire bloggers who post daily about their activities, and I have a couple favorites that I read before we leave for the day. It gives me a chance to follow along virtually and I can almost taste the dinners they enjoy as well as experience the sights they see … most of them are not employed (or are self-employed), so their time is more flexible than ours at the moment.
BUT … I won’t be doing that on this blog for now. At this point, for me, blogging – daily anyway – feels more like a job (that I enjoy, but takes a commitment), and we are already working full-time. When I think back a couple years ago, I didn’t even have a Face book or Twitter account, had no clue about blogging and hadn’t registered a website name either. Now, I have all 4. And it’s MUCH easier than I thought. Every link reference and photo in a blog takes a few steps to implement, which means a great internet connection and being organized. The 2nd part is a breeze for me, the 1st we don’t have consistently.
Writing doesn’t come easily to me, although I enjoy expressing myself. When writing, it takes me time to think and then re-think the wording before I am ready to press “send”, so my blog is more than a quick sentence or two, like our FB page. And that’s what I started our blog for in the first place. I wanted to use it as an online diary of sorts, something where I could document our travels. Some friends have expressed an interest in following along, so they do. But at this point it is not intended to be “monetized” (make money from it) as many bloggers do. That would be a 2nd job for us.
At this point in our lives, we are more focused on HOW we spend our days. On the other hand, because LOA is always working always (whether we understand it or believe it or not) we are the ones who have to remember to FOCUS on what we want vs. what we do NOT want.
Our focus for now is enjoying our time off and exploring the sights in the areas we are working.
