WWTD Turns Two Years Old!
On this day in 2007 I realized that my desk job just was not going to cut it intellectually. At the time I was suffering from “the curse of brilliance” treatment at the hands of my then-employer (in other words, I didn’t have enough work to do and was too smart for the work I did have). I was stuck in my own head following the end of a relationship because I was spending time alone for the first time in a long time. I realized that I knew stuff most people don’t know, and that at the very least my friends and family would enjoy a few cross-country laughs with or at me, so why not start a little blog? It seems like a completely different world! Blogging for two years has been like writin’ and researchin’ school. I’ve written for a bunch of other sites and print publications, been on television, and learned how to think in a way that corporate America certainly did not train me for. I’m headed to graduate school to learn how to write and talk and research even mo’ better, and all of that has come without compromising my interests and the messages I really want to send. I still have lots of work to do, but my career aspirations have changed from “whatever is positive, pays me, and doesn’t make me sick,” to whatever one would call of this around here, which is my true passion win or lose. And I really believe in “win” right now.
The most thanks goes to all of you for reading; without you this blog would be the ravings of a mad woman and not in the good way that it’s been these past few years. Special thanks has to go to the loyal commenters, without whom I’d just think nobody was really listening!
