I love to write. It is a hobby and at times a job. I take it both seriously, and with a tongue in my cheek. I am not a qualified journalist, in that I never went to University to study Journalism, but I've been writing for 24 years and long before blogging, and self publishing became fashionable, I wrote for various editorials.
Sometimes, I can get a blog out in 15 to 20 minutes on a topic that I come up with just from the top of my head. Kind of like right now. Other times, I have to stay on message, and write about a topic that either readers are wanting to read about, or something that is pertinent to our audience for one reason or another.
