I admit it: I’m a lifelong learner and an advocate of online learning, in particular. I don’t think anyone is ever too old to learn new things. I mean, really, I earned my M.Ed. degree at the age of 50 – with a 4.0 GPA! I’m now 55 and in the dissertation phase of earning my Ed.D. degree. So if *I* can do it, I know younger people can certainly learn new things and pursue dreams–and older people, too, because I have had classmates in their 60s and 70s!
So with THAT introduction, and based on the writing prompt for today’s Article Writing Challenge, what would YOU like to learn about here on this blog?
I have done two blog series of posts with specific themes on my primary blog (K’Lee Banks, Freelance Consultant Services), and I am currently trying to wrap another one up there; I would be happy to do likewise here, if that is something anyone would like to see.
I would just ask people to keep in mind the overall theme and nature of this blog, because I wouldn’t go against my own moral standards to post about anything questionable or potentially offensive, especially because I think that would dishonor my Dad’s memory–and he’s the reason I started this blog! Here is some info about the purpose of this blog, from my About page:
“…the goal of this blog – to encourage others through stories, verses, thoughts, and other bits of inspiration.
This blog is my attempt, in some small way, to honor my Dad’s memory and carry on his legacy of encouragement and inspiration, to help others as he helped all of us in his family, extended family, church family, and so many others during his lifetime. This is for you, Dad – I love you and miss you.“
Since I do research for a living–between my freelance writing and my doctoral studies–I’m not opposed to researching some topic any of you indicate interest in, and learning something new myself in the process!
This might also be a good time to share what my own vision and plan is for this blog, in addition to what I posted above regarding the goal and purpose of this blog. I post daily “Attitude of Gratitude” posts, devotional thoughts, and scriptures on my Facebook timeline and it occurred to me that I should just “borrow” those posts and bring them here for blog readers to enjoy who may not be connected with me on Facebook.
I have been writing daily Attitude of Gratitude posts for nearly two years (started in November 2011) and then this year, I started posting daily verses from the Psalms and Proverbs. My plan, beginning in January 2014, is to post those Bible verses on a separate page for each month. I will probably start posting my daily Attitude of Gratitude posts tomorrow.
So tell me, please: what would YOU like to learn and discuss here, within the parameters of this blog’s intended purpose? Please leave comments to let me know–or if you prefer, check my Contact page for info on getting in touch with me privately.
