Hello Wealthy Web Writers!
My name is Jim Wright, and I’m thrilled to be one of your new Reality Bloggers.
Accepting the challenge to become one of your newest Reality Bloggers is exciting and terrifying all at the same time, but I’m really looking forward to this experience. While I’m confident this will be a great learning experience for me, I’m truly hoping it will be even more so for you.
In the spirit of Web 2.0, I’m hoping this blog will be interactive. The more I interact with other writers, the more I realize that many of us face the same fears, struggles, questions, and run into the same roadblocks. I hope the interactive nature of this blog will be a great help and an inspiration to all of us!
A Little Introduction
Although I’ve had an interest in writing ever since I can remember, it’s taken me quite a while to finally make it a priority. I’ve spent most of my life as a musician (drummer and singer), and have also worked in radio broadcasting, and currently teach electronics part-time at a local community college.
Some quirky facts about me: I have walked on the Great Wall of China (amazing!), crash landed an airplane (not as glamorous as it sounds), and played a game of chess against Boris Spassky (and lost convincingly!).
I live in Perth, Ontario, Canada, with my wife Cindy, and kids Max (5) and Madeleine (3). The ability to be able to spend more quality time with my family is one of the main reasons I’m finally pursuing the writer’s life.
Although I’ve been an AWAI member since 2009, it’s really just in the last little while that I’ve started to take this more seriously, and apply myself. I’m starting down this road without the benefit of a wealth of experience as a writer, without an English degree, and without the benefit of a large metropolitan city (Perth is a small town of 6,000 people).
What I do have is a renewed desire to learn, to write, to succeed, and I’m thankful for the wonderful and supportive community I’ve found here at AWAI and the Wealthy Web Writer.
Where I Am Right Now
I would describe myself as being at the beginning of my writing career. I have a freelance website which I completed following the “Build Your Freelance Website in Four Days” webinar series, and you can see it here.
I have published one article on the Wealthy Web Writer which you can read here, and I’ve also published two 3-Minute Guru videos as well, also on the Wealthy Web Writer site.
I am doing some work in social media, maintaining Facebook pages and Twitter accounts for two clients.
I’m pledging to make 2013 my year (and I hope you’ll join me)!
