I am a dilettante, sort of a “Jack of all trades and master of none”, except for a few notable exceptions. I think gardening and blogging have become areas I am well versed in because of my enduring passions for them.

There are a few areas of mastery for me… mainly in Central Ohio gardening.

In the past 12 20 years I have done a great deal of experimentation and self-taught learning in creating websites, and blogs, participating in social media such as lists, forums, facebook, and twitter.

I have some working knowledge of how that works, and being a one woman show meant mastering a certain amount of html, css, blog platforms, marketing strategies, creating graphics, etc. There is a lot that goes into making a website or blog. The good news is that many of the programs and platforms make it easy and take out the work – unless, like me, you are bent on customizing things. I don’t complicate things near as much as I used to.

The Reflecting Pool is a reflection of my activities and the knowledge and wisdom gained, condensed and passed on to others. If I see something worthwhile or learn how to master online marketing or earnings, I wish to let others know those tips. If I see something beautiful or moving… that might become a topic, as well.

This is where my online writing and webmastery began. I hope you enjoy the pages here, the topics are coming full circle in talking more about family and holidays. But the new directions of turning the blogging into a business continues, too.

Don’t be surprised when some of the spiritual topics surface at some point. I think life is all interconnected.

None of this be complete without input from you, the reader. So please comment freely with your opinions and tips. I welcome you.

Sincerely,
Ilona
