The day has finally arrived. I’m so relieved. And excited. And scared. And so many emotions.
And isn’t it perfect that this is the beginning of National Mental Health Awareness Week ~ what could be better, more auspicious for our success.
I’m a little nervous breaking into the big U.S. blogging market, but…
I’m a little nervous about breaking into the big American blogging market but Founder and CEO, John M. Grohol, Psych.D is treating me royally. He’s a pioneer, a visionary in internet mental health awareness and community building. He’s assigned me a terrific and very gentle, experienced new editor, too. She has a great eye for design.
Plus there’s loads of blogging support, which I desperately need.
As I’m doing everything myself for the first time.
We have a different look, but our soul and spirit hasn’t changed…
My new blog will look quite different, but as is this one, it’s WordPress. Easy for me to use. I will be posting three to four times a week. Shorter posts.
Psych Central is giving me complete control and freedom. More than I ever had at The Toronto Star.
I am beginning with some material that may be familiar to you, though my take is always a little different.
I’m reintroducing myself down there…
No knows me in the U.S.A. for the most part, so I must gradually introduce myself, my themes and philosophies. This new frontier is a little daunting for me.
I hope you will be coming along to support our common goals and purpose. Exploring a wide variety of mental and emotional health and wellness issues from diverse perspectives.
That has never changed from my first blog post on April 9, 2008.
Let go together.
Let us continue to grow, together.
Learning. Sharing. Growing. Evolving.
I’m focussed forward, in the present and grateful for the past.
It’s been quite a trip, so far.
I’m so excited to be beginning again.
Now, it’s late. Already tomorrow. I still have some last-minute packing to do and I’m exhausted, so I’m turning in. I hope you sleep tight.
See you and speak soon.
