    My blog url is

    This will mostly be about personal topics, such as relationships (friendships, family, romantic), changes in my life and how I am adapting to them. I am thinking of starting at least one, maybe two more. one would concern education, elearning, instructional design, and similar topics. This is my profession and a major interest of mine. Another site might be devoted to my writing. I don't get the chance to write creatively as often as I would like, but when I do I could have a blog to post my writings to.

    My interests/passions include:

    • reading (fiction/nonfiction, almost all genres)
    • writing 
    • advocating for LGBT rights (especially the "T" in LGBT)
    • working to build stronger relationships within the communities of which I am a part
    • building stronger relationships with my friends, family, boyfriend, acquaintances, etc.
    • politics
    • travel
    • teaching and learning of all kinds--I try to learn something new every day and love the feeling I get when I learn something new or have helped turn a lightbulb on over someone else's head.

    Looking at what I've written so far, I hope I haven't run too long. I also think my response is in reverse order from the question, but hopefully you will all be able to understand what I am saying.

    I have a blog -  I am passionate about contra dancing - particularly the craft of calling contra dances and thats why I started this blog.  That sounds like a very narrow subject, but there are lots of things that can apply - essentially, anything that has to do with building community and relating to people.

    I have split my passions into professionally focused and a personally focused blogs at - professional - personal

    The professional one focuses on communication, presenting, e-learning and all things that go into how we learn and communicate in this digital age while the personal one is a place for me to experiment with my photography and share wonderful things to do in my hometowns (NOLA and NYC) as well as some personal stories.

    Not too long ago, I created a blog at: My purpose is mainly to tell the story of how my husband and I met, and to tell of the adventures of our now 1-year-old son (mostly for the benefit of our family, who live far away). I have not updated it in some time, but I hope to very soon. I would like to do an extensive post detailing my son's first birthday party, and what he is up to these days/how he has grown over the past year. The end.

    I signed up today and these are the things that I am passionate about:

    1. Interesting photography - I have a passion for photographs that take a different perspective of normal everyday things. I especially enjoy take photographs of natural objects i.e. trees, plants, leaves etc.
    2. I have a passion for words. For this reason, I appreciate lyrics to songs more than I do the music, modern poetry that is expressive always touches something deep inside, and when thoughts and feeling are expressed in unique ways - it blows me away.
    3. Human relationships are something that I am always interested in. Human interaction is so interesting because while it evolves and changes with time, it still has many standard and deep rooted aspects that lurk just beneath the surface.
    4. Emotional Intelligence is a skill that I am constantly trying to develop. I was initially exposed to the concept when I was teaching primary school about four years ago. I have subsequently written and developed a training manual, for adult education exploring practical applications of emotional intelligence in the workplace.
    5. Without a doubt, my family is important and they are incredible. My mother, especially, has taken to instant messaging like a duck to water and that totally fascinates me.
    6. I love cinema. My favourite genres are science fiction, horror (not torture stuff though), really incredibly deep human dramas and comedy. Recently I acted in a movie called Flush which is flighting on DSTV at the moment … always cool to see myself on the small screen. Hope I get to do more in the future
    7. Healthy eating is something that my partner and I are always striving to achieve.
    8. The blood type diet is an eating plan that we’ve been following for close to ten years now. Currently, we are exploring how to revitalise our application of the diet because we’ve sort of stalled somewhat (maybe holiday, maybe stress, maybe laziness).
    9. Customer service is something that I take very seriously because in South Africa, there is often a misalignment of the ideals and the execution of customer service. I think that most South Africans accept poor customer service because fighting it takes a lot of time and energy.
    10. Gay Issues. I think in era in which we are in, human rights are critically important and should always remain at the forefront of all our thoughts, actions and decisions.

    I will be blogging at this address:

    This blog has been around for about a year but I do not post as frequently as I would like.

    My topic is technology in general, which can lead to a very broad range of subjects.
