Hi there

Hello world, I can’t wait to meet you.

One of my favorite photos of us, and therefore easily shareable. Elephant Nature Park, Chiang Mai, Thailand

I’m starting this blog for a number of reasons:

  1. It is way overdue! I’ve been planning on doing this for about a year. Two of my specialties are planning things I’d like to do and pushing them off in favor of, well, other things I’d like to do. I actually get a lot done that way.
  2. I recently started a job at Automattic! :happiest of happy dances: The impetus for blogging is now inherent.
  3. Putting goals or aspirations in writing is helpful. Posting them publicly might help me be more accountable. Accountability public announcement #1: I’m recently 30 and need to finalize my 40 before 40 list. I meant to finish it before I turned 30, but didn’t (refer to reason for blogging #1).
  4. I’d like to write more. Challenge accepted.

Sharing is scary, and I second guess myself a healthy amount more often than I care to admit. But, it is how we connect and learn from each other. If I can make just one person smile with this blog, it’s worth it. If I help or inspire, that would be incredible.
