A little over a year ago a friend of mine from high school contacted me and, after catching up, he said he was surprised to find me living such “a suburban lifestyle.”  When I asked him to explain, he said he always thought that I’d be living in the middle of a jungle somewhere reporting on political coups, genocides or other social upheavals…  Wow!  I remember when that was my dream.  I thought I’d change the world with my writing.

When I first started this blog, my plan was to write about my journey as I adjusted to life away from the library stacks but over time time my focus has shifted towards giveaways and product pimping.  So not what I wanted this blog to become

This blog was supposed to provide me with the  opportunity to inform and entertain, instead it’s become a giant commercial.  Not a bad thing, but not my intent.  I wanted to write about things that interest me ~ books, health and well~being, politics, social issues facing women and children, etc.  I thought this would be my chance to live out that long dead dream of being a reporter. Sigh…

Well, the good thing about this being my blog is that I can do whatever I want with it.  So my plan is to focus less on giveaways and product reviews and more on the things that interest me (and, hopefully, interest you).   I will start small and continue with the memes that I’m participating in but I’m going to add a special section called Coffee Talk to my blog.

Coffee Talk will be posted every Thursday and it will consist of a post about whatever news story happened to have captured my attention that week.  Naturally, I will voice my opinion and you may not always agree with me ~ that’s what makes it fun!  I hope you’ll enjoy this new addition to my blog and that you’ll talk back to me.

As always, I enjoy talking to you and interacting with you.  If you have something to say, don’t be shy, leave me a comment.  In the meantime, grab a cup of coffee and happy reading!

I’m not totally giving up giveaways and product reviews, I’m just not going to allow that to be the main content any more.
