It wasn’t too long ago, maybe a couple of months, that the only way I could get an update on what’s been going on in my sister’s life was by sending her a text or giving her a call. Now, I get updates from her on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and her blog. It only dawned on me that she’s only now on social media when I read a post she wrote about autoethnography.

I’ve got two minutes to get this post out, because I’m in a rush to do too many things. Instead of getting right to the point, I thought I should take the time to mention the above.
My sister, lovely woman that she is, has started a new blog. She does this about once a year. This time, however, she’s committed to three years of blogging!
Her blog is about the life of a counsellor. I think that this is a really important exercise for her. Please let me encourage you to check it out and follow her, as she documents things. Admittedly, I have yet to peruse her newest online endeavour.
She’s smarter than me, so you’ll likely find more valuable information and insights on her blog than on mine.
The blog is called From Health to Healthy: The Life of a Counsellor.
My buddy who runs the blog SonicRetreat has been talking about discontinuing it; his URL is coming up for renewal or something silly like that. He keeps up on a lot of music, and his posts are very current. The exposure to new music and artists is a good thing for you, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Anyway, in an effort to encourage him to continue blogging about the music that he loves, and to discourage him from talking about pharmaceuticals when we’re drinking together, I’m asking you to show your support (for me, more than him) by visiting his blog.
Here’s how I know how you can keep up on his blog:
Visit his site: SonicRetreat (you can follow his blog via a link on the righthand side of the page)
Follow him on SoundCloud
I like a lot of what he puts up, and you probably will too.
Please leave your thoughts on his choice of music in the comments below. He’ll be happy to read them on my blog, instead of his.
Thank you for the support! Enjoy!
I’ve been struggling with this question for at least three months, and now I’m turning to you, dear reader, for advice. It’s not that I haven’t asked my sister and some friends, but they’ve grown tired of entertaining the question, given my consistent indecision. Continue reading “What’s in a Name?”
Did you know that I know how many people read my blog? Or, at least, I have a pretty good idea of the number. To say the least, I’m pretty obsessive about my visitor statistics.
I think I have a few reasons for being so. Continue reading “My Obsession With Site Stats”
Who doesn’t want to be interviewed? It happens to famous people fairly often, but we, the real people, are often overlooked. I want to rectify this. Continue reading “5 Questions, or so”
I had a writing professor tell me to never share anything you write until it’s published, because nobody wants to see themselves in a story. I’m sometimes reminded about how true this is.
It’s never about you. Continue reading “It’s Never About You”
I had a girlfriend once; years ago. She was studying history when we got together first. While driving home one day, she started talking about the impact that email is having on recorded history. We had this discussion when people were almost exclusively using Hotmail as their email provider, and were just starting to use their university email accounts on their resumes.

I want to blog more this year. In fact, I really want to engage with social media a lot more this year. In the latter half of last year, I stopped blogging regularly, and I think that was a bad decision on my part. Continue reading “I Miss Blogging”
I’ve grown accustom to taking a drive in the evenings, after my usual nap, to grab a coffee in the nearest city. The drive takes about an hour, round trip, and is a good time for me to reflect on what’s going on in my life and the rest of it. For some time now, I’ve been thinking about writing an autobiography.
