Blogging Journey

How many times have your heard someone say, there are already millions of people doing something, so you shouldn’t bother?  Blogging could fall into that category. Yet, I decided to start a blog anyway.

Although research shows many New Year’s goals go to the wayside by February, studies also show people who write down their goals are more likely to achieve them.
