“It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to”
I should cry when I think back to my business career and failures. I don’t, but I could.
The ability to vent
The creation of the blog publishing platform, along with the internet to showcase it to the world, has provided anyone the ability to vent about nearly anything for which they have an opinion. Since I’m the only person contributing to my blog’s posts, I don’t have to worry about an editorial board.
It may sound pouty, but it’s my blog and I’ll post what I want to. These are strictly my thoughts and beliefs. There are no guarantees that anyone will read my posts, but it still feels good to know it’s out there for someone to discover. It’s refreshing, but intimidating, as anyone can also question, comment, and argue the many posts’ themes and messages.
Venting on a blog can be a healing process for both the writer and reader. Especially when the reader identifies with the subject. For me, the writer, it’s a therapeutic process that has many benefits.
Still lots of work
Just thinking about my foodservice ventures and writing about them has made my retirement that much richer. Or should I say semi-retirement? Blogging requires lots of work and details. But at the end of the day, it should be fun and rewarding for me, which it is.
