I’m not in Kansas anymore (or iWeb)

Written By: Dawn - May• 10•12

I imagine that by the end of the year I’ll feel like a pro in Word Press, but right now I feel a little like Dorothy in the Land of Oz as I adjust to blogging in a whole new format.

To be honest with you, I thought change was behind me for a while after starting a new job and sending Big Boy off to college last August. This spring brought more changes in the form of a new opportunity- I’ll be coaching freshmen football at work (more on that later), a new house and a new website.

I am not one of those people who is easily adaptable by nature. My day job in a high school library and my dream of a writing career have both forced me to accept that change is unavoidable and you have to recalibrate your expectations accordingly.

The rise of digital publishing and the demise of brick and mortar bookstores have forced me to look at a writing career far different from the one I imagined while typing away on my grandparents’ old Smith Corona typewriter.

The thing I’m realizing is I can’t avoid change and I can’t control when it comes, but I can control my reaction to it.
