Everything is about "finding your platform" or "defining your niche" nowadays. People want to instantly equate a name with a specific product, service, or idea.
And, I'm all for that, really. Well, mostly.
The problem is, I have more than just one line of work. I have several interests. And, not just the dabblng-in-this-field kinda' thing either.
That's why this blog/site has seen so many transformations over the years. First, I've defined myself mostly as a writer, as that's how I started off online. Then, I got in to teaching/training. Then, I started practicing in psychology. And then, I became serious with painting.
All throughout, I've been in to journal writing (er, blogging?!).
Then, last year, I made my interest in online journalling/blogging an official profession. Somehow, the blogging got stuck. At least, for now. 😉
