So, how do you go about doing your first post on a new blog… Do you go all out highlighting all the things you’re good at, embellishing where the actual isn’t quite up to scratch?
Or, do you say it like it is and let people make up their own minds?
IMHO, what’s the point of trying to make yourself out to be something you’re not? The internet can reveal anyone’s limitations, failures and bad behaviour with just a simple search. Of course, it can also reveal the good things you’ve done, your accomplishments and endeavours.
Which means, why would you lie to anyone online (or at all really, but that’s for a post some other time)?
That leads me to this soul-bearing post in my new, personal blog. If you are interested in what I have to say then please visit often and give me constructive feedback. If you aren’t interested then the internet is the perfect place to ignore and disregard someone, including me, and you are free to do so at any time! lol
Having said that, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Susan L Williams but I usually go by “Sue”. I am a mother of four – two boys and two girls – and a grandmother of four delightful grandsons. My husband Chris and I have been married for 42 years, which these days is fairly significant (!).
I worked as a business administrator in the building industry after going to business college. Then I was fortunate enough to be a stay at home mum while my kids were young. Once our younger son was in Year 4 I returned to study for three years and updated my office admin qualifications and obtained valuable computing skills.
Along the way, I took up horse riding again after 20 years away from it. I now compete regularly, mainly in dressage, and have just finished a four-year term as president of the biggest equestrian association in Victoria, Australia. In addition, I have been employed by the Victorian education department for nearly 19 years, currently as the business manager of the only primary school residential outdoor ed camp in our state.
Long story short, approaching retirement age and wanting to spend my days riding instead of sitting in an office, I have built on those computing skills gained in my return to study to the point where my main goal is to become an online marketing entrepreneur. Along the way, my wish is to assist like-minded people to also achieve this potentially life-changing goal.
Young, old, male, female, any nationality, being able to make a worthwhile living online is both desirable and achievable. I have seen the proof of this and intend to make sure that I reach the pinnacle of success in this area.
It could be a bumpy ride, but I’m going to give it my all.
Will you join me? 🙂
