People can’t believe I gave up county pay and benefits for a life of blogging. There is nothing more liberating. The money will come. It’s all about striving for authenticity, being true to yourself and others. There is no more pressure to detail every little moment of county time in an Excel Spreadsheet work log, juggling squirming babies, sippy cups, and such. No pressure to quantify 40 hours per week. Life is much more meaningful than that.
