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.
