Nearly five years and 72 countries of fast travel have all caught up with me.
Our overall approach needed a fresh look. It all needed a professional edge.
It also needed a professional edge.
I mean, we started out as a Blogspot blog, that was birthed in my friend’s lounge room prior to our travels.
I have decided to try over the coming months to change my website and social media from what started out as just a hobby (to motivate single parents to travel that talked about our personal world journey and world schooling) into a tool and resource for other travelers, and readers who follow our adventures.
One of my personal biggest regrets is that I wish I had set my website and social media up properly so that it was all streamlined from DAY 1.
I’d be so much further ahead.
But as I tell my son, “we are not born with a crystal ball, and we learn from our mistakes”.
But the good thing is that I can manually add old blogs into Missing Lettr so I can go back and do that too.
My old blogs…
Well, they are atrocious!
Poor grammar, bad layout, written terribly, no links, really ‘B grade’ photography.
But they are part of our journey, and so slowly we will go back and improve them, but for now, they can stay there, as a reminder of how far we have come on our blogging journey, and yes, we still have a long way to go.
And that is OK for ME to say.
And yes, how sad it is that other people can point the finger and mock me, or make fun of us, but it has been a time of learning and growing.
As a mother, I teach my son that we learn and grow, and life is a journey of learning, of accidents, failures, and making mistakes.
Those that mock; well sadly this is the lesson they need to learn in life as they look down at us from their lofty perches. I personally think they should look at life as a road that we all walk on – and that it is tough, but sometimes we can find a smoother and easier path on which to journey.
And social media…
Well, I never even had an Exploramum and Explorason Facebook page at the start.
But now I want life’s journey to get back to the real focus one more.
I want to free up my time; to work smarter not harder, and to share with you all what we learn along the way. To encourage you in life, and to help you get back onto the path of life you wish to be on.
