So, you might wonder, why am I blogging. To be totally honest, I have wanted to do this for some time now but never knew how. Now that I have books published there are all different ways of “getting my name out there”, so to speak. I guess my biggest goal with blogging is to get ideas about what people want their kids to learn about. I want feedback so that if a story isn’t that great I don’t keep writing ones just like it. My third story, Penelope’s New Puppy, is a favorite for many people. I think some of the upcoming books in the series are going to be great for introducing more of the world to kids. Most adults think that with all of this technology we have, our kids are learning more. Well, my personal opinion is the opposite. Technology keeps kids in their own little worlds. The unlike, unpost, or unfollow what or who they don’t like. Easy as pie. Well, the world doesn’t work that easy when you grow up and I think many kids don’t learn this early on. I have told students of mine that you might have a boss that you cannot stand but you need to deal with it because if you don’t, you don’t have a job! Picking and choosing your preferences seems so routine to kids now that they don’t realize you don’t always get to pick and choose things that make you happy. Sometimes you have to do the right thing because it is the right thing to do, even if you don’t “like” everyone involved. You learn to like them or keep your opinions to yourself and keep going. Hard lesson to learn if you don’t learn it until you are 16 or 17 and at your first job!

Enough preaching. Keep me thinking on here. Ask questions. Look for answers. We can all learn something new every day!
