Hi. My name is Dave and I used to write a blog called Home School Dad. I was a full-time educator for 5 to 6 years and before I went back to the 9 to 5 grind, (It’s actually 7 to 5:30 4 days a week, but how much personal information do you really want from me? Should I text you my ssn? BACK OFF!) I wrote regularly about my family, our journey, and many of my other interests. Then I stopped.
That’s right, I pretty much stopped writing. Sure for a year before I turned 50 I wrote a limerick a day and posted it on Facebook. Yes, once a year at my Crazy Uncle Dave’s sports blog, I cover Baseball’s hall of fame voting. I did participate in a to z blogging in April for a couple of years, and every 6 months or so, I try to work on the book idea I’ve had for almost 20 years But the truth is writers write, fish swim and Facebook friends unfriend each other over trivial misunderstandings, so I need to get back on Facebook and start some useless arguments. Sorry, not the point. I need to write, and on a daily basis, even though I have a rewarding, albeit challenging busy life.
I also need to read more. Reading informs and prepares the writer. I have finished one book this year and that was on January 7th. I need to make time in the day for it. I mean how much Netflix can one guy watch? That’s not a rhetorical question, I need answers!!!!
I’m not sure if this is where I’ll do most of my writing or just where I’ll keep people appraised of my accomplishments. We shall see.
