6th Blog Birthday

I like to celebrate the birthday of my blog every year (see 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th birthday posts). I started this blog over 2,000 days ago.  I take this annual birthday celebration time to reflect on my blogging life. In the time since I hit publish on the first post I have:

Outside of blogging, my professional life has one official job change, and a variety of job duties and responsibilities over the years. I have presented at national, state, and local conferences. Mentoring became an important part of my life, as a mentee and a mentor. The Aspiring Administrator Academy I began three years ago has now successfully produced at least 12 promotions for teachers becoming assistant principals (AP) and AP’s becoming principals or directors. I am honored to serve in the capacity to impact leadership development and I truly love my work!

Personally, I have continued to make traveling with family and friends a priority. In the past six years I have travelled to:

  • Vancouver (in the summer and the winter!)
  • Turks and Caicos
  • Las Vegas (many times to see friends who are family)
  • Paso Robles
  • Caribbean cruise (St. Kitts, St. Marten, Haiti, Puerto Rico)
  • NJ/NYC (Billy Joel!)
  • San Francisco
  • Chicago
  • Ojai
  • Boston
  • Washington, D.C.
  • New Orleans (work and fun)
  • Portland
  • Napa and Sonoma
  • South Africa
  • Hawaii (x2!)
  • Palm Springs
  • Dallas, Texas (x2)
  • Yosemite
  • Zion and Bryce Canyon
  • Los Angeles (various concerts)

Wow! Making that list was fun. It’s hard to believe that I’ve done all that traveling in just six years. -PAXP-deijE

As I say every year, when I began this blog I didn’t know where it would lead. Six years in, I don’t know what the future holds, but I know that I will keep writing. I write because I love it, it is relaxing for me, and it’s a great reflection tool. I also write to share and impact others in their leadership work. Thank you for reading this little blog in one tiny corner of a giant Internet. 😉
