Welcome to our premier blog! This venture has been months in the making and now that the day is finally here, we couldn't be more thrilled!
Carolyn and I have discussed a variety of possible business opportunities and ways we could use our creativity, over the past two years. At one point, we had half a dozen possible ideas swimming around in our heads. The days passed and one idea after another was shelved; one was going to be too time consuming with our full time jobs, another just wasn't all that interesting after we thought about it, and yet another's longevity was questionable.
The one idea that seemed to consistently come to topic was blogging. All we knew about blogs, however, was that you could google any subject and find one. Pretty pathetic, I know. I think we were just a wee bit intimidated by blogs, but thankfully our determination was far greater than our anxiety.
We bit the bullet and began our research. We read anything and everything we could find about blogs and blogging. And yes, we even bought Google Blogging for Dummies. Which by the way, became the greatest weapon in our arsenal; it shed so much light on blogging that our fears turned tail and retreated to parts unknown.
It was decided that we were going to tackle blogging, but what kind of blog? A couple cliches came to mind as we mulled around ideas. You're probably familiar with the old cliche, "early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise". While the 'early to bed' sounded pretty darn good most days, rising early is a must, not a choice. But being 'healthy, wealthy and wise', was definitely something we could work with. We started thinking about life; where were we and where we want to be in a few years.
The cliche. "it's not about the destination, it's all about the journey" brought home that point. Up until now we had been primarily 'destination' driven...so, if it's all about the journey, what did we want our journey to look like?
After a few moments of quiet thought, we turned and looked at each other with grins on our faces and twinkles in our eyes, and shouted "WOO HOO!" So, there you have it. A blog was born, Living a Woo Hoo Life!...becoming, healthy, wealthy and wise.
We intend to put the excitement back into life while searching for things healthy, wealthy and wise along the way - with a little artistic creativity thrown in for good measure!
We're busily working behind the scenes to get everything up to speed - stay tuned, you won't be sorry!
