All About Me
The hardest part to me about writing an about page is actually writing about myself. Though in order to learn more about me I have to do just that.
My name is Ian, and I am an amateur blogger, entrepeneur, and parent living in the suburbs of Washington, DC with my wife and four children ranging from an “almost” adult child, all the way down to an infant.
I am currently in the process of writing a book, “The Things I Never Knew”, which I hope to publish in 2015. This book is a collection of writings, and stories about the trials and hardships that life can bring, and how you and all of us can try to surmount those summits, and rise to a place of happiness.
I am a Virginia native, but spent 15 years on Long Island during my Middle School, High School, and College years. I returned to my roots in 1998, and haven’t looked back since. I am a 1st Generation American on my mother’s side, as she was a native of Latvia, coming to the United States from a Displaced Persons Camp after World War II. While you may not think this is of major importance, it is very important, as those challenges shaped her, and that in turn shaped me, my emotional makeup, and in turn my life.
Her passing after a long battle with Multiple Sclerosis in 1993 had a profound effect on me in ways I am still understanding today.
About Another Day of Life
This poor site has gone through so many ins and outs, and ups and downs, it might as well be alive. I initially started the site on Blogger in 2007, as Build Tomorrow, Another Day of Life. I restarted in on AnotherDayofLife.com in 2009. I left the site turning it over to another author in 2011, and returned in 2013. Then in December 2014, I decided to start fresh.
Much of my 8 years of content is not here anymore, by design. This site, needed a purpose. Most of the content here didn’t serve a purpose anymore. I tried too hard to make the site commercial, then a dedicated “Dad” blog. Somewhere it stopped being about me, my writing, my thoughts. Which is where I want to go. So now you see the site is called Another Day of Life, Build Tomorrow, which is the root of this site. The idea of the site being just that, a collection of writings stories, and even other author submissions that are about the struggles of life. Embracing the struggles, and seeing the opportunity to make tomorrow what you want it to be.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy, and if you are so inclined, tell your own story.
