When a mind races, it needs to be helped. That is what I have learned. I did not always get the help that I needed, and sometimes – in the past – I had been wrongly medicated which only made the mind racing worse. This blog stems from my need to help my racing mind.
And one of the ways that it has helped me is that it lets me have many blog worlds.
I started blogging on a regular basis (nearly daily) just over a year ago after a dear friend’s daily blog challenged me to join her. She has been an encouragement ever since. She blogs using WordPress, so I thought that was the right choice for me too. I had set up my original blog using Blogspot, but I moved it to WordPress.
One day, another friend mentioned to me that the Fargo Forum was looking for bloggers who wrote about women’s issues. I do not write exclusively about women’s issues, but I thought, “I am a woman. I can write about woman stuff.” I contacted the peeps over at the Fargo Forum, and they encouraged me to set up a blog using their site – Areavoices.
I did not get any featured spots on the women’s stuff site, but…things have been great with Areavoices, and I love interacting with people from Jamestown, Fargo, Duluth, Willmar, and all of the little towns in between.
Recently, I contacted the Fridley Patch with information about the musical that my kiddos are in this weekend. From that email conversation, I set up a little blog on their site as well.
I am blogging in a lot of places!
Fortunately, I have one software piece that allows me to post to multiple sites with a click. I can maintain the multiple locations without much work. The cool thing, though, is that I get to have a variety of looks to the blog. The Fridley Patch hosts their own software, so I have little say in how that looks. But the others – I have full control!
This past week has been a racing mind week, so I made some changes…
Check them out, and enjoy the multiple creative sides of my personality.
I wonder how long this will last…
