A Little Love from The Oregonian
In case you missed it, OregonLive featured a little Q and A with me last week as part of an ongoing series they are doing with their partner bloggers.
It was so interesting to think about how long I have been blogging – and why. Also interesting to think about how this opportunity in France is, in some ways, a direct result of my dedication to write for writing’s sake. I started writing online simply to have a space to share what I thought was poignant or important. That rolled into a cycling column for the Oregonian. The rest sort of spun out from there.
And here I am, heading to France on a fully-sponsored team to try to ride all 21 stages of the 2012 Tour de France course.
Could I ever in a million years have predicted this?
Could it ever have happened if I’d given up on writing for writing’s sake?
I’ve re-imagined and re-designed and re-named this blog three times in 11 years. But it’s always been here – a place where I go to connect and express and let it rip.
Thanks for being here. Thanks for reading.
