Where Do I Start?

When you happen upon a cool new blog, it’s hard to know where to begin.  You like one post, but you want to know more about this person or what their story is.  I’ve put together this little guided tour of Ottsworld to help you get an introduction to me and the site.  Hopefully you will love it so much that you’ll sign up to receive updates in your email, or my monthly newsletter (which I never manage to send out monthly), or you’ll simply stop back from time to time and leave a comment.   And if you don’t like it…then it’s been nice knowin’ ya…thanks for stopping by!

Navigation – what does it all mean?

I have broken up my writing into Travel, Photography, and Life – so you get a mixture of everything – which means hopefully you’ll like something.  To see all the 50+ countries I’ve traveled to and have written about – click on Destinations in the navigation bar and find the country you are interested in.  If you simply want to see the standard blog view of posts then head to Blog in the navigation.

Travel and Photography are pretty self explanatory… but I’ll give you some pointers on the Life category.  Life is full of my personal take on the world, and often it is a look Inside My Head…ideas, fears, absurdities, observations, blogging business, and a lot of self reflection.  It also contains my thoughts on living this life solo.  No one to lean on; the good, bad, and alone…but seldom lonely.
