This is the beginning of an adventure!

Connectivity–the whole picture!

Can I really connect 9+ million nurses worldwide? Let’s see.

I started this adventure one weekday morning in early April 2019. It was in a classroom in Tacoma, Washington. A guy I’ve listened to before–Rick Hogan–was doing a class on starting an online business. At the time, it was a little more than a dream for me. My wife had had a blog. I had a blog at one time (as a hobbyist). Our boy’s girlfriend has a blog (that she actually makes some money from!)

“Why not me?” I thought.

A short time before, I had moved a couple of URLs we owned over to a new provider. I had purchased a new WordPress site from the same provider. I was ready to roll!

“WordPress has changed since I used it last. It’s changed a lot!” I thought. “Oh well. Let’s see how it goes.”

There was this new thing called “Gutenberg”. A new text editing tool to learn how to use. I thought, “I’m pretty techy. I can figure this out!”

First things first. I had to figure out all over again how to set up and customize WordPress. “Not easy is it now, is it? Big shot!” I had to find an image–a graphic–to replace the “stock photo” that came with the default WordPress theme. Something that reflected the theme of the new site “Connected Nurses”. I really didn’t want my model nurses to be all-female and wearing scrubs!

Something modern in a contemporary setting–maybe a break or a report room. Perhaps making a gesture that I never would have seen in nursing school! How about a group of young people (nurses) doing a “one for all” gesture over the report table. You know. Really connecting!

So, here we go. One for all, and all for one!

Who will be our first connection?
