    I'm blogging about the general insanity that encompasses my life. It will include everything from strange childhood events, my trip through financial ruin, what it is like to be bi-polar, and raising a child with Asperger's.  Essentially it will be a journal of vagueness.

    So my list of things I am passionate about include reading, history, poetry, music and being a mom. 

    Since I started a blog on Wordpress for another P2PU course I figured that I would just use the same one and just make good use of the 'categories' feature.

    Feel free to check it out here.

    Saw your site.

    I like the simplicity because it just looks much cleaner and makes your user focus on what you want.  

    The issue is I don't understand chinese so there is a big language barrier with me, but I didn't get a glimpse of your article on reading.  

    Because of the simplicity, reading your one article is the only thing I could do.  What else would you want to do with your readers?  How would you want them to engage with your material?  Think about what you want from your audience and how you can adjust your website accordingly.

    Love the images too.

    Hello,  I started a blog about a month ago generally to note some realizations I had while traveling some crazy, some introspective, some just to rant about plan is to make this a travel website to share to people my experiences on the road.  I am on the process of improving my writing as I have put to myself a challenge of posting on it more often to push myself out there so to speak.  

    So here's my blog ->
