Peace and Tranquility
Most of us need a place to get away from the hassle of our everyday life. There is no better place to do that than Lake Martin in central Alabama. It is just an hour from the capital city of Montgomery.
It offers a choice of recreation that will not disappoint. From hiking trails to boating, you will find what appeals to you. The best part for me is just to be there with a panoramic view of the glistening sparkles of the water dancing with the wind and the sun. I can stare over the expanse from my deck high above the shoreline. Hypnosis is moments away. I never seem to tire of the numinous quality it brings to mind. The soul answers with a sense of relief.

Never Too Late
Hackers destroyed my old blog site. It was so screwed up it just had to come offline. It was time to start over on the internet anyway. I had neglected the site which left it vulnerable.
Steve On The Go
I have been away from blogging for far too long. Now I am finding out how much I forgot about WordPress. I am learning Genesis Framework and a child theme named Lifestyle Pro. Ooops! Lot’s of stops and starts. I have changed my mind on the theme. Now I have activated the “Get Noticed” theme. This is Michael Hyatt’s branded theme. Now I am learning it as I go. Purchased Michael Hyatt’s book Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World. I found out about Platform University. I joined it. Learned about MarsEdit 3. Downloaded free trial. Writing on it now for first time to edit this post.
Working with the installation and configuration to get things started are taking longer than I thought. I am just making some posts to test how things look and the performance of certain settings. When I blogged before I never really treated it like a business. I had a desire to write and learn WordPress but never approached it as a professional. I have a professional background. I am a retired trial judge and lawyer. Now I am in a major learning mode and behind the curve. The resources above are great. Michael Hyatt is my Virtual Mentor right now. He’s a great teacher of his craft. I am learning things quickly with miles and miles to go.
I know this is raw and should not be a live work-in-progress but it’s a transparent starting over. The world just ain’t perfect. Don’t expect me to be. I am doing a few things right. I selected some great resources.
If you are starting over or starting out, I would recommend you take a look at these resources.
