Did You Say Zero to Hero?

This is pretty funny. Contests abound. As you may know, I entered a contest through SOOPLLC.com to introduce my book, Passing Through, and receive (if I get enough votes) a publishing contract offer. Please click on this link to vote for Passing Through: http://soopllc.com/blog/book-ideas/passing-wendy-karasin. Today I find Wordpress is hosting a Zero To Hero contest, in which they ask bloggers to introduce themselves and be involved in a 30 day project to better their blogs. Step One: Introduce yourself; who are you and why are you here?

I’m Wendy Karasin, a Brooklyn native who has traveled somewhat extensively, loves education, health and fitness, yoga, reading and writing. I live on Long Island now and have for the past few decades. I began blogging after I wrote a memoir about surviving the loss of my parents, consciously and compassionately, while remaining in life, wholly. A task less easy than one might expect. After the fantasy dust of getting published quickly settled, I read that I needed a platform whether I self published or went the traditional publishing route. The unintended outcome was the enjoyment of sharing life experiences by writing about them. It has given me a forum for getting my thoughts out of my head and/or computer and into the world. I write about topics that affect my life from a Boomer’s perspective (thus the title: Musings of a Boomer). I am a thinker so I tend to get introspective. I am a participant in life, on the court, in the game. For me the experience has been a win-win. I hope to help others navigate the big issues of life by reading about how I did (as I read about how others did). We learn from one another and in the world I choose to live in, we teach and help one another through.

 

About wendykarasin

I am complicated and seeking - joy and sorrow, country and city, competition and cooperation. After behavior of a gregarious nature, I require down time to refuel. My loves are children, family, friends, reading, writing, blogging, fitness, and health. I feel most alive when I stay true to my core values. Beauty makes me happy, pain helps me grow.

    Hi Wendy, I’m also a boomer, into blogging for a little over a year, mainly to build a platform to get my books published. Most of my writing is based on hundreds of letters written between 1939 and 1946 by my Grandpa to his five sons and a daughter-in-law (my Mom) about ordinary life and keeping the family connected even though they are scattered around the world. I’m looking forward to reading your posts and welcome to the Zero To Hero challenge.
