Dear fellow writers and/or potential readers of my blog,
Here’s what I want for you as a result of following my blog: To be amused. To learn something from me. To be encouraged to be your own unique self. To experience something new, which could be a musical artist or new genre, a recipe, a great place to travel, a movie, or a way of looking at something.
I am beyond enthusiastic about creative writing. Always have been. I’ve been writing since I was a kid growing up in the 70’s and 80’s in northern Minnesota. I’ve been blogging for almost three years now. Getting comments really trips my trigger. I love interacting with my readers and the opportunities I’ve had with this blog to encourage other bloggers and be encouraged by them. I hope to make real and positive connections with you.
I am optimistic (at least 88% of the time anyway) and I’m on a path. That’s why this blog is not called “Rhonda’s Path” but “Pollyanna’s Path”. Where I land as a writer is unknown, but that’s the fun part. I am a person who loves surprises. I love learning and trying new things to challenge myself to be a better version of me than I was yesterday.
What informs my writing is largely my lifestyle. I moved to Colorado from Wisconsin with my Hubs 3 years ago. We have two adult spawn that sadly live in other states. We are Gen X grandparents approximately 12 years from retiring. I work part time at a non-profit where I run a food bank. It is the best job I have ever had. We adopted a rescue dog this summer which has brought us, thankfully, more joy than challenges.
I hope you all stick around to enjoy my stories and feel inspired to share yours with me and the world.
