About

My name is Ray and I’m the person behind all of the craziness posted on FreshBlogger. I’m updating this About page for the first time in a very long time. It’s now March of 2010 and it looks like it was around September of 2006 the last time I touched this page!

Time has flown by and much has changed. I’m a little older than I was then and still live in Northern Kentucky. I still have a bunch of children but they’re getting bigger by the day. I’m out of the programming business (most days!), but I still take up space in a cubicle during the work week. I’m employed now as a project manager in the Healthcare IT world. It’s good business right now.

I initially started blogging as a way to encourage myself to write every day. Here’s an excerpt from my old about page that’s still true:

I’ve been blogging since January of 2006 and I loved it from the beginning. I started blogging over at Blogger.com in an effort to practice writing every day. I was and still am interested in writing fiction. That was the initial focus of my blog. As time went by, though, I realized that I wanted to do more than just slave away for 50+ hours a week and write stories in the wee hours.

While I had high hopes of becoming a professional writer/blogger, that hasn’t really materialized. I’ve been able to make a few dollars over time with this blog, but never anywhere near enough to make a living.

As for the content of this blog, I write about a number of different things. In the past I’ve written about making money online, writing, blogging, programming, work, self improvement, productivity, and just about anything about life. I have a wide variety of interests, so in the future, I’ll continue to write about a variety of topics.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll find something useful and inspiring on these pages. Feel free to leave a comment or send me a message on my contact page.

    Good stuff. You have a nice blog here, so who knows, if you haven’t lost the aspirations to perhaps do this full time.

    You have a really clear, yet intelligent writing style that is easy to follow.

    That must be kind of amazing to think you started in 2006.

      Hey Martin – Thanks so much. It’s been a wild ride. Not just with blogging, but with all of the changes life brings over the years. The last five years of my life have been crazy, devastating, awe-inspiring, depressing, exhilarating, and ultimately, humbling. I wish I could have shared more on this blog. Hopefully, in the future I’ll be able to do so. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you become a regular reader. There’s more to come!

        It sounds like you have a bit you can write about Ray. I know I love hearing how people surmounted all the above that you mentioned. Of course, hearing about the awe-inspiring also. I can sure relate with all of that.

        At present I have some worrisome stuff, and this time around I am choosing to keep my focus as positive as I can. Hmmm, maybe I am conjuring up some of my own writing material here as well 🙂
