Broadening the Scope of my Writing

View of a lighthouse on the Great Ocean Road

I’ve always enjoyed writing, but never had the patience or dedication to follow through with anything for more than a few months, until now.  I was just going through the blog, and realized I’ve kept this up for over a year and have 51 published posts!  I’ve made at least one post per month the entire time.  (There was just one in October and basically informed everyone that I’m still alive.)

It was fun going through my old posts.  There were a lot of details and feelings I had during my travels that I had completely forgotten about.  Even if nobody else is reading my posts, its good to have a journal for personal reasons.

At the moment, pretty much all of my posts have to do with travel or living in an RV.  I’m going to continue posting about travel, but I’m also going to start  using this blog to share all sorts of other ideas, thoughts, ramblings, rants, questions, decisions, news, etc. that I have in other areas of life.

Just wanted to explain to my reader(s) (aka Mom and/or Dad) why you might start seeing some more off-topic posts.

PS- Still in Australia.  I’ve been keen on taking more pictures, which I’d like to share, but the internet sucks here.  I’ll have to wait until I have the time AND have a fast connection to get them all posted.

  1. I’d recommend getting into the habit of journaling daily. Just write anything. Normally when you start writing, you’ll find that you have a lot more to say than you originally thought before you started. I’ve found that my problems become less dramatic and I tend to solve them if I write out what I’m thinking daily.

    Hmm… So develop a habit of writing once a day… If I were to write right now, I would ramble on about how much I love breakfast burritos. Not sure if I’d have enough quality insights to justify a once-a-day sort of thing.

    You do make a good point about figuring out solutions to your problems if you just write about them though. Writing really forces you to think about the issue and a lot of ideas come out of that deep thought.

    Yes, I think writing more frequently is a great idea. Then you’ll have all this to read in the future – like when you’re retirement home.
