Blogging Along

Wow! You guys have been the greatest of supporters as I have picked up this new thing of writing. I am excited about where I hope to take writing and also excited about the dayliness of my work. I think goals are important, but I also think living in the here and now matters too. So, while I know my goals are bigger than my blog and I hope my blog helps me move in that direction, I am also thankful for the opportunity to be here today. Thank you for your part in this process.

I began this process in January, it really wasn’t that long ago. Knowing very little about blogging I asked my friends on social media about the concept. I received great words of advice and encouragement. And for the most part, I have tried to stay true to those. Some of the advice I inadvertently fell away from without even realizing it. A great friend suggested keeping it shorter. I found myself frequently writing more and more. I have to get back to shorter – it’s a goal. So in that spirit – this is a thank you post and I shall keep is short.

So Thank You! Thank you to each friend who has taken a moment (or ten when I was longwinded) to read and share comments. Thank you for the encouragement and the support with your notes, reads, likes, and even messages. I have been blogging for three months – in that time I have posted 25 times… 26 now. My work has been read over 1,500 times by individuals in over 20 countries – I had no idea how global this would be when I began it. This has been a venture out of my comfort zone, and it is indeed a path I am glad I took. But this path is better because of you, without you this would just be a waste of time. Thank you for your part in helping make my dreams come true. I so appreciate each of you as you are oars in my life – if you are not sure what I mean by that check this out. I hope reading with me continues to be something special for each of you.

Hello Friends! I am Dr. Cindy Freer Conley, and I am so glad you are here! It is so nice to "meet" you. I am entering the world of blogging for the first time, I hope you find these readings worthwhile, helpful and entertaining. I have spent my career in one role or another of the mental health and counseling world. I have worked in private practice and in schools settings. I hold a PhD in Exceptional Education with a concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis. I currently work in public education full time and adjunct part-time. I am a wife and the mother of three adult children and the grandmother of one young lady who is growing up way too fast. I didn't have all of the answers as a mother, although my kids would probably tell you I faked it often (I did). I don't have all of the answers now, but I do know so much more now than I did 27 years ago when I became a parent. I was a single mother for several years, and learned a lot about the unique struggles single parents face. I have spent time with great supports and time where I felt alone on my path - only to look up and realize I was never alone. We are all on a journey, enjoy the journey, but understand small changes on your part may make lasting impacts to someone else's journey.

  1. Whoa, 1,500 views in three months isn’t something to be scoffed at. I’m glad that you’re finding your stride in the blogosphere, and I wish you many more milestones to come. Do keep sharing!
