You should pick a subject for your blog, is something you usually find included in advice about how to start a blog. I’ve always resisted having a subject for this blog because I
want to talk here about all the varied things that I find interesting. I think not having a specific subject tends to limit my readership to a smaller
group of people. I always say that I’m blogging because I like blogging, not to build a big readership but I have to admit I do look at readership statistics.
For the next several months a big focus of this blog will be all the life changes that we are making. As you know Duke and I each retired last year. Our plan is to sell the house, move into temporary quarters (probably in the Reno area), and then spend the next several months traveling around looking for a place to settle down for the next phase of our life. I’m very excited about the adventure and will be sharing a lot about it here.
We won’t be selling the house until early summer but I’m starting to get ready now. The trim around many of the windows needs replacing and we’ve hired a guy to do that. I’ve been selling some of my books on Amazon.com and donating the ones that don’t sell. I’ve also been selling some odds and ends on Craigslist. The goal is to trim down our possessions and get organized.
Even though I will continue to talk about lots of different things on this blog, a reoccurring theme for the next several months will be downsizing, searching for a new place to live and finally moving and settling in. Of course I’ll be sure to keep you up to date on all the adventures along the way.
