Well, it only took almost three years to get BACK here (from when I first started this blog) … way too many things have occurred to cover NOW, but suffice it to say, this new year of 2011 brings fresh opportunities to be more organized and manage my time more efficiently.
Part of the changes include blogging more regularly. I decided to participate in the Ultimate Blog Challenge using my newest freelance writing blog, Office Help 4 Hire, and I’m having so much fun with THAT – it motivated me to update all my other blogs.
I also decided to dedicate this blog, my original adventure into blogging, to my beloved Dad, whom I lost to lymphoma about 8 1/2 years ago (9-2-2002). Following his lead as a “Master Encourager,” the theme for this blog will be to encourage others through thoughts, quotes, articles, photos, and other means.
Happy 2011 to all – may you have a blessed, prosperous year, and seek ways to encourage others!
