Sued51's Blog

This is the original text of my “About” page:

I have been keeping journals for over 35 years (my closet is bursting with notebooks). Although I was originally an art major in college (my father’s choice), I graduated with a BA and MA in English (my CRAZY choice). Some poems were published back in the 1990’s (the only time I got up the courage and/or time to send some out), but I have spent most of my career editing technical materials. I love many things: food, books, animals, gardening, music…This blog is unfocused because I am; I will be a student of the world forever.

P.S. I can’t believe that I have kept up this blog for over three years, though I still don’t have a year’s worth of posts! But I keep plugging when I have the time and inspiration. You can check out my other blog if you are interested: It is mostly photographs, so I post more often. If you are interested in the story behind my gravatar, you can read about it there.


And who am I now???

It is now almost 4 years since I started this blog, and I STILL don’t have a year’s worth of posts. But I’m enjoying myself and I’m not going to stop…if that counts as success, I have it in spades.

If you are looking for someone who posts every day, or is trying to tell you how to “succeed” as a blogger or make your blog into a way of earning a living, you have definitely come to the wrong place! I’m just someone enjoying the rest of my life, the ups and downs, and hoping that I have something to offer to others: inspiration, a laugh, a kindred spirit, a good book, or a good story. It has taken me a while, but I have figured out this is my life’s purpose: to bring people together, to be their launching pad to success, the connector of seemingly unlikely people, God’s tinker toy piece. I may never be famous or successful, but a lot of small acts add up to a great life. My dad proved that to me.

But if you are interested in getting to know me, like that I share my human-ness with you, enjoy a good story and sometimes some good writing, jump on board. I welcome you as a companion on the journey of the rest of my life.
