About

Thank you PicMonkey

Face of QP  (Linda Stewart)

How we blog has changed since I sashayed into the wide open space known as the blogosphere. From journal-keeping blogging was a natural progression.  It provides a creative place that keeps me accountable for my content as well as the quality of writing.  It was a brave step: as an introvert my preference is to observe rather than be heard, as for speaking, stop it you!

I trust my audience and with that comes a willingness to be vulnerable and transparent. This monumental shift in how I engage with others is driven by a core belief that to live with sincerity we need to be authentic.  I cannot be authentic without being open and honest.

***

My work takes me into the world of parents affected by drug and alcohol use and is cognitively and emotionally taxing and worthwhile beyond measure.  Sometimes I write about the challenges of work with a sense of indignation about the way the vulnerable in our community are perceived, and treated.  Mostly I write about whatever piques my interest.  There is no niche audience I am hoping to hook in but choose instead to follow my muse.

If it is true that the more you write the better you become then I want to write, write and write some more.  I have gleaned volumes since those early days.    I have learned, laughed and struggled here more than other arenas of my life, and all from the safety of my laptop.  Blogging is the perfect creative outlet for an introvert.   I hope you find something that resonates.

  1. Thank you for visiting and following my blog. Before I retired, I was a journalist and copywriter. So, I relate to your writing side. I began my blog as a way of sharing my journey through the jungle through learning photography. About 2 years in, I thought I should start writing the blog better! Keep at it, and you’ll achieve your writing goals. Keep up the photography too!

  2. Hi! I’d like to use the wonderful photo of the 185 Chairs on your site in a scholarly article (no payment / profit involved…alas!) and wondered first whether you had any objection, and second, how I should credit the photographer? Is it your picture?
    Thanks!
