In March of 2007 I started this blog with a very specific goal. I wanted to become a published author and thought it would be a great idea to establish a presence online. So I started this blog with the goal and desire to become a published author within five years.
Well, tomorrow, this little blog celebrates its 5th birthday. It feels like a great accomplishment in and of itself and it is definitely worth celebrating.
I have fallen a little short of my goal of becoming a published author. However, I am not giving up on that dream. While it looks like it may not happen by the end of 2012, I am still dedicated to getting my name in print. It doesn’t matter how long it takes.
I am still writing and perfecting my craft. I will be participating in Script Frenzy again next month and in National Novel Writing Month in November. I plan on writing a Teaching Tip ebook later this year as well. So lots of things are in motion. I am currently working on a few revisions and hope to start sending out queries soon.
What I didn’t know when I started out this little blog was that it would become a hub for teachers. I was unaware that my Teaching Tip Tuesday posts would become a popular feature here on the blog. While the posts may not get much in the way of comments, they continue to give teachers what they are looking for and I’m glad.
I also had no idea that I would become part of a radio show and a regular contributor to a hip-hop magazine website. I am having so much fun producing radio segments, doing artist interviews, podcasting, and writing album reviews and articles.
Overall, I can say that my foray into the blogosphere has been a great experience. Thank you for tagging along with me.
