Refining The Mission As We Refine Our Interests, Plus: An Announcement :)

It’s becoming clear to me just how fascinated I am by the unseen. Whether it’s the barren desert, ripe with life of the most rugged of sorts just beneath its surface, the ocean that fills this sailor’s horizon in all directions with more life beneath it than can ever be quantified, or the miscellaneous business that springs to life within a city while the owner, story untold, uses it as a starting point to make the world a better place. The unseen, be it that beautiful, wonderful intention the owner has and is practically dying to share if someone would just have the curiosity and interest enough to ask, and the unseen life below the seas and deserts of this earth, these are things I find myself obsessed with as I write.┬áThese are the things, the unseen emotions and stories hidden deep within myself and others, that compel me to write.

I’d like to introduce you to a new element I’ll be adding to this blog, starting sometime between now and May. ­čÖé

On the list of┬ácategories that lines the top of this blog will be a new one. Something fun, and probably a pun of some sort. This new category will be where I share stories I find in others. It won’t be strictly journalism, as it will variate from some of the “rules” I’ve been taught classify something as that. It will essentially┬ábe more along the lines of PR writing in the form of┬áfeatures, specifics of which are still being ironed out. The overwhelming idea here will be to share the beautiful stories that each person or group I talk to has. I’ve always loved journalism’s standing as┬áthe venue for which we as a society learn about each other, and it’s my hope that this new category will be the way I start to fulfill that same role with this blog.

Don’t worry though, this blog will always be about what it’s currently already about. I won’t be changing anything here, I’ll just be adding another element, hopefully┬áin a way that will complement the ┬árest of what my dear readers already love about this blog.

This is a very big undertaking, and I’m overwhelmingly excited to share this all with you. ­čÖé
