Welcome to DT! I appreciate your visit. Have a cup of coffee and enjoy your stay.
What is the theme or niche of this blog?
I am fiercely trying to avoid developing a niche. It’s not because I couldn’t do it, it’s not because I would run out of things to say, it’s because I didn’t want to restrict myself to one or two topics. It’s simply not my style.
Who writes for DT?
Me. My name is Heather. I’m writing currently the sole author of DT, and you’ll get to know me better through what I write than by reading an “about me” section. It sounds counter productive, but trust me. If I tell you about myself, it will be planned. It will be limited. It will be staged, if you will. When I write, I type what I think and the words usually flow.
What do you have to offer?
I have always had opinions, though what my opinions have been about have varied throughout the years, and still do. I have been through many experiences – both good and bad – throughout my life to date. Throughout the course of my experiences I’ve made many observations – usually about people. I have used these experiences and observations to not only attempt to improve my own life but also to improve how I interact with others. It comes in handy quite often. I also have a technical background, and I’ve had experience teaching beginners. I am generally good at describing technical issues in plain English. I also have fun removing viruses and spyware from computers semi-manually.
What made you start this blog?
I have always loved to write, ever since I was a child. I originally started this blog thinking of it as an online journal or diary. I used to keep a journal when I was younger and would write very frequently. Up until 2011, I didn’t promote this blog anywhere. I hid it completely by means of never sharing it. I finally decided that there wasn’t much point of having it if I wasn’t going to post where people could read it. If I just wanted a journal, I could do that anywhere. If I were going to write on a blog, people should be capable of reading it.
If you don’t have a niche, then what is this blog about?
This blog is about life. Yes, it’s about my life but it’s also about how my life can help you. If my personal experience, insight, observation, technical support, way of explaining things, or anything else I can say can somehow benefit you in life, the purpose of this blog is fulfilled. If I can entertain you a little in the process, I consider that a fulfilling purpose also. I am here to serve, and I aim to please.
