Lynn’s Recollections and Reflections #38 – The Blog

Life After Work

When my corporate job was over, I knew exactly what I was going to do for the next part of my life!

I was going to follow my dreams!

The Early Blog

I started a blog back in the early 2000s but it was just a place where I wrote random thoughts and musings. Kind of like a journal.

At some point I upgraded to a paid domain with a name, I think it was in 2012. I actually spent more time trying to figure out how to be a blogger than actually blogging.

I would start and stop depending on what was going on in my life at the time or the level of frustration figuring out how to be a blogger.

Time on My Hands

Now I had all the time in the world on my hands and I wasn’t going anywhere because the world had basically shut down.

I have suffered from anxiety for most of my adult life so having something to keep me and my mind busy during those crazy times was a Godsend.

Another thing that was a sign was a course that popped up in my Facebook feed. KariAnne Wood from Thistlewood Farms was offering a Mastermind Class on how to “Grow Your Audience and Your Influence”. The cost was $10 to find out more.

I immediately signed up!

The Mastermind

I learned very quickly that I had absolutely no idea what I was doing once I joined the mastermind group. Luckily I was amongst friends! I had found my people. Women just like me who wanted to put their pen to paper (or fingers on the keyboard) and share with the world the things that made them happy.

While 2020 was a scary time, I was tucked away at home with my computer and in my little bubble, I was thriving.

Until next time!

Peace & Love,
