New Endeavors

My very first blog . . .

I’ve been playing with the idea of starting a blog for a couple of years now. I’m a freelance writer and novelist, so having a blog seems somewhat appropriate and a bit overdue. But I had no idea what to write about. My personal life isn’t particularly fascinating (at least not to me) and I have fifty million different interests—reading, writing, cooking, photography, fashion, interior design, yoga, religion, history, psychology, architecture, art, traveling and just plain learning. Then it dawned on me. Why not start a blog about what I spend most of my time doing online (when I’m not researching articles for work, that is)—online dreaming.

The internet takes daydreaming to a whole new level. It’s snowing and cold outside and I wish I was on a beach, so I visit Travelocity and plan a vacation to the Caribbean or Florida or California, even though it’s never going to happen. I really can’t afford a new pair of shoes and I don’t really need a new pair, but why not do a little online browsing? Online dreaming can be about something I really want, something I’m interested in, or just a different type of life I’d like to live—if only for a day. My online dreams sometimes evolve into reality—like the trip to the Virgin Islands three years ago, become goals like owning a pet, and other times it’s just an escape—like becoming an English teacher in Spain.  

So this is a journal of my online dreams. 

Sweet dreams,



  1. Congrats on starting your blog! And thanks for stopping by La Maison Boheme today! Cheers...

  2. Thanks! I've been following your blog for a while now (I have a small obsession with interior design blogs) and I really enjoy it.
