Today I wrote the following post on Facebook:
I've always had a passion for writing, but more recently I've wanted to put that effort into a BLOG... Would you be interested? 👍 if yes. Please, let me know if there's anything specific you'd like to see on the Hope Charged Blog. 💕 I love writing about my experiences of living in Tofino, BC in contrast to when I was a child. I love writing about my journey as an entrepreneur and working remotely in contrast to a classic retail or 9-5 job. I love writing about my success with Veganism now in contrast to when I started out back in the Summer of 2014. I love writing about the relationship I have with my Creator and His faith-filled Word (aka the Bible) in contrast to my attitude and behaviour in my youth. AND so much more...
