Back in April of 2012 Robert Lee Brewer hosted a challenge on his blog. It was a challenge for writers to establish their online platform. I missed half of it and didn’t jump on that train. However, since I’m in the process of creating a new blog, I decided that I should attempt it. The steps are still valid, even if not an official part of the challenge anymore.
The Day 1 challenge is to define who you are. It’s not about who I wish to be, or where I see myself in the future, or even what I used to be. It’s about who I am right now. He listed a few questions as a jumping off place, so I’ll start with those and see where this all takes me. You shouldn’t be too surprised if you see some of this (if not all of it) showing up on the About page here.
