Genesis

Note: all links open new new windows!


I hadn't really planned on starting and maintaining a blog. It was at the suggestion of my friend, Saipan Blogger, and fan of the "LOST" TV series, Angelo, who made a joke about the Walt character on that show, that I whipped up this page yesterday to capture a few hits for my Jamaican on Saipan book.


But, when Angelo identified it as the newest blog in the Saipan blogosphere, it made me think.


I don't fancy myself a blogger. I've started quite a few blogs, but those were mainly just pages that should have been stand-alone sites. I'm too private a person to let the world into my life on a daily basis. With that said, however, I do consider myself a writer (yes, I know I've started sentences with "but" and "and"). And, as I thought about it, I realized that this might not be such a bad idea after all. Even though I like to think of myself as very busy--I write a weekly column, I have 50 websites to oversee, I have several books in various stages of completion, I have a tourism venture, among other pursuits), I do have a lot of thoughts that need a home. Perhaps this might be the best venue and voice for the real me.


Lately, beyond the PassionProfit books, beyond the coaching practice, beyond the writing, I've ben thinking more about continuing my nomad adventures in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Bali and China. Perhaps a "Where is Walt" blog might be the best thing to light a fire under that desire, and the the best place to consolidate all of the adventure.


It's got a built-in search-engine friendly name (thanks to the television series). It's applicable to any adventure I decide to pursue. And it's not limited strictly to business concepts, so I can throw in some vegan, minimalist lifestyle ideas, or old soul philosophizing as the opportunity arises. I could even expand it a bit and include the application process and auditions for the harem. (um, more on that later.)


We'll see. For now, I can only promise that I'll go with the flow and see where it will go.


Feel free to throw any encouragement my way, or reach out if you're in, or have any tips for visiting any of the countries mentioned above.


Oh, and before I forget....

Are you going to create a Harem Globetrotters?
