Who Is This For and What Are We All Blogging About Anyway?

I am new to blogging but not exactly new to writing.  Years ago, I was a contributing columnist for a multi-town newspaper.  I am frequently asked if I have ever written a book or told that I should write a book.  The answer is no, I have not written a book, but I do think about writing one from time to time.  Perhaps I will begin that adventure in my near future.  Meanwhile, I’ll blog.

Which got me thinking …. to whom am I writing?  Who is my audience?  More importantly, what’s the purpose or the main focus of my blog?

I have a private practice where I teach people how to feel better about themselves or teach them how to change behaviors within themselves to create more of what they want and less of what they don’t.  I love helping people to reach higher, feel better and I love having a place to have others gather together to learn and grow.   I do enjoy what I do, and through this blog I want to continue to help others.  I love the idea of a writing forum like this to start conversations with my friends (old and new) and my family to help us all grow.  I love the friends I have made (and will make) along this journey and I love to laugh with them.

Laughing out loud is the best feeling in the world … maybe getting a group of us laughing together is the answer to world peace! (Hey, it’s my blog, I can write what I want!)  Maybe together we will all leave this world just a little bit happier.

Through these writings, I can become yours too.

I encourage all of you to please enjoy my blog and give me a thumbs up if you like what you read.  Pass my blog around and invite others to join in on the conversation (the more the merrier!).

  2. Thumbs Up!!
    I was writing a blog but it did feel like I was writing a journal for high school English class. I could not keep up because it just was too much pressure on me. I wish you well and thank you for all the help, Jon
