How It Started
After my first year of college studying microbiology, I saw an Andy Rooney segment on 60 Minutes where he spent the last five minutes of the show fussing about something.
What he was miffed about is stored deep in the archives of my brain’s neocortex. Fortunately, the focus of Mr. Rooney’s rant wasn’t what set me on a new course. Realizing you could openly complain about something and make a living at it seemed much more appealing. Realizing I was good at the whole writing bit inspired me to abandon the professors who always looked and spoke as if they had just woken up.
As my experience of connecting with people through words and expressions grew, so did my passion for creating better content. A life-long pursuit of expanding my knowledge and ability to explain was born.
How It’s Going
My pursuit of providing more than just disingenuous black type on a white background comes from my love of music, fitness, history, and a desire to teach through personal experience. Have you ever been intrigued by a headline, clicked on the article, and felt you’ve been duped? I’ve got a great story about the six-foot man-eating chicken I’ll explain in a future article. See what I did there?
Anyway, my point is that it’s no fun being led to believe you’ve found what you’re hoping to learn, only to read the same bland run-on rhetoric that tells you nothing you didn’t already know. A trip to my page ending in you being disappointed isn’t something you or I are interested in—I prefer you get something for your efforts.
Where To Now?
My struggles growing up with ADHD have been a gift I gleefully share with my audience. Satisfaction for me is knowing readers get something from their time searching for answers to their curiosity. We’re all different in what we want to learn, but we’re similar in how we seek clarity, which is why you’re here. I want you to comprehend the topics you want to know more about easily and thoroughly while, hopefully, being entertained at the same time.
That’s my two cents (or should I say, “two bits”?) for today, and I look forward to seeing you in future columns.
