For some people full time RV living can lead to a condition where you become convinced that you need a new blog. Hauling your home on wheels (RV) around the country always leads to stories and who wouldn’t want to read about the first time you hit a tree with the fifth-wheel or when the truck’s turbo pipes blew off while under load on a high mountain pass. The thing is most of us need a blog like we need a flat tire. a leaky sewer hose or hemorrhoids. It can so easily become just another that needs our attention. I’ve had blogs before and I know first hand the ultimate disappointment of spending hours upon hours writing only to have it barely noticed or worse yet to have self published exhibit-A that I occasionally lose my mind.
Starting this new blog has sparked a lot of inner dialogue and it can all be a bit overwhelming. Will I start at the beginning or just jump right into the present? Will the first person be “I” or “Us” and do I dare speak in the third person? Am I the only blogger or will Tammy write posts as well? How will the reader even know who “I” am if I don’t introduce myself in every post? Who will the readers be? Will there be readers? What about the haters? And finally should the stories be rambling and informal or detailed and informative? Will the scope of writings be limited to RV Living or will they veer off to touch on the subjects of downsizing, working, creativity, life, happiness, health, marriage, kids and grandchildren?
Ultimately this new blog will take on a life of its own and will likely touch on all of the above. Life is too short to waste time trying to fit into a box of rules. Let it begin and let it grow organically. We can’t predict where the road will take us but we can set our compass to Explore, Create and Inspire. Until further notice we’ll be sharing it all with you right here. We hope you’ll come along for the ride.
Oh..Almost forgot to say Happy 4th of July to our American readers.
