Why I blog

I write blogs because I think I have a lot to say. I have a lifetime of experience to share. And I make no apology for my opinions. I try to be sensitive to other people, but sometimes, I just have to vent. So these are my opinions, some pictures, some helpful hints, whatever strikes my fancy at that particular time when I sit down to write. And now that I have been diagnosed with lung cancer (Oct. 2013) it will also be a chronicle of my journey with that disease.

  1. Keep it up. I find blogging resensitizes to things I’ve learned and have seen, but I wish to now share. If people care to read it.

  2. I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! Go check out the blog to find the directions and stuff! Hope you don’t mind!

  3. Hello Ruth: I just came across your blog(s) at Boomer Women Speak. The first one I was led to is your Gratitude Blog. First of all, let me say I am very sorry for the illness you are going through right now. You have a lot of courage. Just the other night I had dinner with a friend who has two friends who have recently been diagnosed with cancer. I have been directing her to others I know dealing with the same thing. I was unable to locate the type you are dealing with but I am sure you are an inspiration to many.

    The gratitude blog is such a good idea. I have kept journals for many, many years. Every now and then (especially when I am encountering a very difficult situation), I start another “gratitude journal”. I think it is important to not minimize whatever pain we are going through but once we begin to look on the brighter side, it helps our perspective.

    I am developing an online magazine aimed towards helping boomer women be the best and live the best we can in order to leave a lasting legacy of value in whatever way we are directed. My site isn’t live yet but I have established a facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/boomerbabes.

    Your journal has inspired me to have a gratitude blog as part of my site.

    Bless you and many hugs to you as you journey to health.

  4. Thank you so much, Patti, for your comment. My Gratitude Journal Blog has helped me in more ways than I can count! 🙂

    I have Stage 4 lung cancer that was diagnosed just under a month ago; I am blogging my cancer journey on my New Beginnings blog, so if you think it could be useful to anyone you know, please feel free to share.

  5. I appreciate it so much, but I don’t think I qualify – I have more than 20 followers and have been blogging here for more than 3 years. 🙂 But congratulations to you on getting it. I know how hard a subject it is you’re writing about and admire your perseverance as you keep writing. 🙂
