Introduction for Dysschord

Retired at 53, and loving it! I suppose you could say my new “occupation” is traveling. My wife and I, (both U.S. citizens,) with our two dogs, old travel trailer and pickup truck are currently exploring Mexico, and having a blast! We will be headed to Central America next to explore the countries and cultures, not to mention the beautiful coastlines along the way.

Hobbies: Well, this is easy - Traveling! But I can also add blogging about our travels, working on editing my first book to be published in the first half of 2015, reading and browsing the internet for interesting articles.

Favorite food or drink – Hmmm, this one’s not so easy! I love food. Put it in front of me and it will be my favorite dish. Oh, but please don’t serve me cucumbers or celery. Yuk!

So on to a little (or maybe a lot) more about me...

My Background: After years of working in the computer field as a business owner, (as well as time spent as college instructor, personal assistant, and property management,) I turned to social service work in a marginalized community and founded a non-profit organization. This has consisted of years of managing a homeless shelter, as well as event coordinating, speaking, and teaching.

Organizing, writing, speaking and teaching all come naturally to me, and I approach each new situation with creativity and strive for a positive outcome.

My interests are in sociology and psychology, and extend into multiple cultures and countries through personal travels and experiences. Knowing people and understanding what they need and want is something I have learned over many years of working with the public. My specialty area of research is within the “T” part of LGBT – the transgender population. I have worked successfully with people in all niches of life and in various cultures in regards to race/ethnicity, age, religion, gender, sexual orientation, et cetera.

Welcome to PP. Your travels sound interesting. I look forward to reading more about them and, hopefully, seeing some photos. I love photos. :)

Thanks! My personal travel blog has lots of photos and stories of our travels. Not sure if I can post it here?

I think if you write an article about some of your travels you could include the link. Might be wise to ask Maelou or elitecodex first though to be sure.

I'm officially jealous of your retirement. I hope my health holds up long enough for me to hit some road.

What a wonderful way to spend your time. I would to be able to travel like that.

You can certainly post any content that does not violate our rules. Stories of travel and your photos are acceptable (so long as it remains family friendly).

Just one word of caution, we do not currently allow duplicate content as there is still some question as to how it affects our ranking. Since we are young, we are playing it safe for the time being. You can certainly tell the same story a different way, use the same photos or link to your original blog (so long as it is not a referral link) with some commentary from here.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to let us know.
