Who I Am and Why I’m Here


Since I’ve had my website for years and am still paying a considerable amount of money for it, I’d like to find out whether it is worth keeping. I recently retired from teaching high school English, and the website was started as a teaching site. I’ve needed to rebuild it a few times using different content management systems; by working my way through WordPress, Concrete5, and another CMS that I can’t recall at the moment, I’ve learned a bit about the process.

I feel I’m not the most original anything–I don’t really want to sell the things I create, and I don’t believe I have many unique thoughts or ideas. I have jotted down a few ideas for writing, and may expand upon those. Exploring the realities of retirement, after working full-time pretty continuously since my 1973 high school graduation, is what I’m currently occupied with. How am I so much busier now than when I was working? What will my fashion image look like (after I finally organize my closet)? Will I be able to travel or own a horse again? Do I have any interesting ideas to contribute to the online world?

Will I complete the WordPress blogging fundamentals course I signed up for?
