Rewind - Self-Publishing

I recently attended a Writers Conference and attended a session called the Art of Blogging. I thoroughly enjoyed her presentation and have decided to apply some of what I learned, or at least make an attempt. We are all writers and writing about something that we are passionate about is a good place to begin. I think that's what blogging must be all about. Reading others blogs, I find are always so much more interesting then mine. Why? I'm not sure I've attempted to put my heart into what I write, rather just something to fill the page. So, I'd like to write about a subject that I've become very passionate about over the last couple of years, as practice, and hope that both you and I will find helpful information and take pleasure in reading it.
Self-publishing? Are you considering this route? Have you researched what it is all about and the different options you have? WOW! There are so many! After considering where I've been and where I want to go, I'm going to take time to revisit where I've been, this crazy trip of self-publishing I've been on. Why? To not only re-read myself as a reminder going forward, but also to leave my footprint so that those that might be trying to figure it out for themselves have a clue of what's ahead, perhaps with a little more confidence, or of course, take a totally different route. I'm only going to leave a little at a time, because I was told that you should only write about three paragraphs at a time, well here are two already. And, how can you really say much in just a few short paragraphs.
So - my plan is to start at the beginning as I attempt to rewind two years, I'll call this 'my post journaling'.....when Johnny Green was a thought, when he spilled out on paper, then the long time in between and how it all finally became a book on recycling for children. If I only knew then what I know many times have you said that in your life? Well, the long time in between is what I'm going to spend time writing about.
Come back! This should be fun!
