Once I finished my doctoral program, I started this blog. It wasn’t meant to meet any standard or be professional. It was meant to serve as a storage container for my stream of consciousness thoughts and for notes from books I’ve read and enjoyed. It started weekly, then moved to random posts, then moved to postings every other day (2013), then every day but Sundays (2014), then only on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (2015), and every day (2016). The posts have been self-published through Create Space as annual yearbooks:
- Sheila Says 2015: Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays
- Sheila Says 2014: No Blogs on Sunday
- Sheila Says 2013: Odd Facts
- Sheila Says 2012: Random Thoughts
- Sheila Says 2011: A Myriad of Musings
- Sheila Says 2010: From Doctor to Author
- Sheila Says 2009: From ABD to Success
My thinking about this blog is if I’m thinking about things, others may be as well; or if I’m reading books, others may want to know about them too. This year, I spent a lot of time writing about Hawaii and the South Pacific, my new home. Over the years, I’ve heard from several of you when certain posts resonated. What I’ve discovered is I never know what subject will create emails, facebook comments or blog comments. However, I’m grateful for each of them.
As I close out another year, I want to say thank you to all who take a moment to read a post, to like it, to comment on it, or to mention it to me when we chat. Hugs to you all and here’s to a great 2017!
