A Seven Year Journey

What have you been doing consistently for the last seven years that you never did before then?

Publishing "Maiden Voyage" on March 15 2011 as the first post of my newly-initiated blog marked my first lifetime attempt to engage others via the written word. Ever since, I have doggedly pursued that aim. The journey has been enjoyable, instructive, and frustrating, in roughly equal measure.

In the enjoyable category have been comments from others, the consistent creative flexing, and the occasional joy of knowing someone has derived something of use from my reflections.

It's been instructive to learn firsthand of the reach of the Internet, to have regular "contact" with bots, and to gain a sincere respect for those who make their living via the written word.

As is invariably the case with a goal-driven person like myself, most of my frustration has been - and continues to be - connected to unrealistic expectations.

What has your seven year journey been like?



  1. You’ve done a nice job on this, Pat. When handled correctly, the Internet can serve you well.

  2. I am so impressed by your ability to consistently bring creativity to your blog...and with your consistency in just getting it done, day after day. Congratulations on 7 years of amazing work!

  3. I've really enjoyed the questioning aspect of your posts, they often leave me with food for thought.Great job.

    1. Peter; And I've enjoyed your answers to my questions! Thanks for the continuing support.
