After doing a massive internet search of reviews on the best site to start a blog, here I am finally on WordPress.com
Though I am sure my final destination will be to actually use their premium service and pay for a domain name, I have decided to start simply with a free account.
Why did I decide to start blogging?
The answer is simple and probably painfully common, but like so many others, I have a dream. I dream of being able to travel and support my family through my writing. Believe me when I say that I have no delusions of grandeur. I do not expect to be the next J.K Rowling (though a small part can always hope for that kind of success). No, my dreams are somewhat smaller. I only hope to be able to provide a lifestyle for my children that does not require working 40+ hours a week to achieve.
This does not mean to imply that I am against hard work. Far from it! I am fully aware that to attempt to make money by writing will require a lot of hard work and dedication on my part. Thankfully, I am not the only ”breadwinner” in the family.
We also are very realistic in our financial goals. We do not expect to be millionaires, living in mansions and swanning around the world in private jets. Our dream is just to be secure and not living paycheck to paycheck.
We want to provide our children with the opportunities to see the world and to have the luxury of both parents around on a full time basis.
I have always been passionate about writing and enjoyed dabbling in it from time to time. We are not getting any younger, so why not jump in, both feet first and see where blogging can take us.
And so it begins….
