Oh my! It’s actually happening!! It has taken me many months to finally get to this place, but I’m here!! Blog building one step at a time has been worth it.
Life also got in the way. I had a major accident and recovered from that. Then my husband and I moved from Canada to Panama. We sold, gave away, and downsized our way to Panama. That’s a blog or two for another day.
Setting up the mechanics of a website has been an experience. Research, reading how to do information, trial and error on repeat worked. Blog building one step at a time was the easiest way to do it.
I am not the least bit techy. This process has been stalled many times through the frustration of not understanding the nuances required to get everything set up.
Is this blog 100% done yet? Not by any means but it is ready enough to get going and add to it and fine-tune as I go.
A blog to write
How often I would dream of being my own boss. It has been two years of lots and lots of self-talk to jump in both feet. Now I am going to do it!
Writing a blog and working from home will provide me with “sanity”. This is much needed at this point in my life. I had been working crazy hours in retail. Working in retail is not the most stress-free or healthy environment.
Now, however, I just think it is good common sense to work for oneself. You can manage life as you see fit with no more reporting to people that really are not interested in you or what you do. Being your own boss means generating your own amount of income. JOB stands for “Just Over Broke.”

Skills to offer
I am a Canadian, 60 something woman, married with 4 grown children. I’m a people person, with a skill set that has seen me accomplish a mixed bag of experiences.
Family, my health, fitness, growing and eating more organic type food and exploring my current place I call home, and crafting
My main skill set over the years has been that of “planner”. I have an aptitude for constructing things, do it yourself renovating or building a patio.
These skills will be an asset in running a blog and the variety of ways one can monetize the blog.
Interests to share
I have been across Canada and parts of the United States, to Cuba, and Mexico.
Currently, I live in Panama with the hope of exploring Central and South America in the next couple of years. I would love to share the process of traveling from country to country, all the requirements to do so, the experiences of living day to day with the residents of the country, exploring the wonders and natural marvels in all the different countries.
This lifestyle blog will let me share my experiences and use my expertise to help others. People like me, that can help themselves and their family, in the way they want to not just how they can afford to I think of this blog as an adventure not so much as a job for income. I want to be able to travel and explore my world.
I look forward to working towards a kind of lifestyle for myself and my husband that lets us live and take part in activities that we want to.
As the saying goes “take the road less traveled”, and see where it takes you. I will be! Why don’t you join me!
