A List of One

"If you don't have time to read, you don't have time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that." - from On Writing by Stephen King

As I browse through the posted projects, I'm beginning to believe that Mr. King's words apply to engaging blog posts as well. I cannot post a link to my current blog because it is a company blog (username and password required and all that jazz). I work for a relatively young company that specializes in testing for mild cognitive impairment. We have employees in remote locations so I decided to create a blog that reaches out to them to encourage them and make them feel like they are part of a team. I enjoy encouraging others. I want to be better at doing that with my blog. That's why I'm taking this class.

I post things like this:


I started a blog in 2011 and it's still up so here's a link:MySimplicityQuest

I read and commented on a couple of posted projects and then half-heartedly searched for "engaging and compelling blog posts" on topics I enjoy (like barefoot running, simple living, brain science, how to increase happiness at work) but with the time that I have to do that, I could not find any. I found some that I like and that are somewhat engaging because of their subject matter, but none that I felt were compelling. Then I reached back into the audience of my memories and found one. It stirs my heart. It engages me in a way that makes me want to make positive changes in my life. I feel compelled to read more... So here it is:

The Minimalists: A Quiet Place

I love the writing and the images. Simple and uncluttered (good thing because its title is "The Minimalists!). Makes me want to clear my desk of clutter, call my best friend from childhood, and go for a run.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. I appreciate it. I look forward to adding to my list of engaging and compelling blogs from my classmates.
