It’s nothing fancy, really. I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, and when I started college in 03, I discovered LiveJournal. I wouldn’t call the things that were in my LJ blogging – at all. But it was my start to writing online. Then I started playing around with a free site on Tripod.com and that was really the first time I started blogging.
My early 20s were rough, and I spent a lot of time avoiding things, which meant I made awful choices – and documented every single one of those choices. Good times. I’m sure they’re still floating around somewhere on the internet but they have no association to my real name. (Didn’t make it any less real).
I met some of my best friends via blogging, and I’ve started to build a community with my blog since I launched my own site back in 2008. But that was still under a pen name. It wasn’t until this past year, after I lost my job and realized what I really want to do is follow my dreams, that I ‘came out’ with my real name.
Which brings us to here, now, the new website.
The blogging isn’t going to change, at all. But it was time to take my brand to an official level, which is why I had a professional logo designed, implementing it for both this blog and the PQ Productions page.
I’ve been spending a lot of time doing writing for others, staying in the background.
It’s time for that to change.
How? I’m not 100% sure yet but hope you’ll continue to be with me on the journey.
I stepped from Plank to Plank
A slow and cautious way
The Stars about my Head I felt
About my Feet the Sea
I knew not but the next
Would be my final inch—
This gave me that precious Gait
Some call Experience.
