My first post. On my first blog. It’s really not a stretch for me, I’m a professional storyteller. A corporate historian. I get paid to communicate.
So why did it take me so long? Well, I thought about writing a PR-themed blog or more specifically, a toy PR-themed blog about my work with Razor. Because every legitimate PR person should have a blog about PR, right? Actually, the world doesn’t need another blog about PR. Trust me, I read a lot of them.
Much of my time is spent communicating to the public, pounding out key messages, press releases, strategy plans, pitches and newsletters, all with a clear objective in mind. But I’m giving myself permission to enter this writing space with freedom. I have no intentions to entertain, educate or inspire people. Lots of folks are already doing that very well. My only agenda is to create a familiography, recording those silly conversations, priceless photos and tear-jerker milestones that make my mother’s heart swoon. It’s hardly newsworthy or scandalous. It will likely bore anyone besides my own Mother and will certainly lack perfect AP-style. But it’s the most important story I’ll ever write. Just living life in Liberty Canyon and pursuing happiness. With a good man, three kids and lots of laughs. Welcome to Life in Liberty Canyon.
