I decided to start a new little spot to write about little lessons I have learned about various things. From lessons I have learned from being a parent, lessons about kids, life lessons and anything else that is something worth learning from.

I also believe that we learn something (if not many) new things every day. I liked the idea of documenting these “lessons” or even having a way (in the future) for people to add to their own lessons as well.

A little back story….I stay at home now, but some day I want to go back to work (or work from home or work during school hours….) but I don’t know what I want to do when I “grow up.” I had been pondering starting some kind of new blog with ads and sponsors and all those fancy blog things that make you money on the side. But I couldn’t think of a great topic that wasn’t already very saturated in the blog world and that I thought I could write enough about to keep anyone interested. One idea I had was a blog on “lessons learned.” I started to think this might not be worthy of its own blog, but I can always add it on here.

I created a new twitter account for my lessons called @mini_lessons. (My Twitter name is @minihays.) I thought it would be fun to keep a bunch of them there and then I could expand on some really good ones here.

This is in its infancy and is kind of a trial and error process to see how it goes. I added the @mini_lessons feed to my sidebar on the right (along with all my other twitter accounts) which will show current tweets. But if you read this from a reader program instead of coming to the site, you probably won’t ever see it!

If you have any lessons you have learned that you think I should include, let me know. (I will, of course, give you credit for them.) If you think this is a terrible idea, fell free to tell me, but that isn’t going to stop me from doing this. Smile I shall see what evolves from this, but I am hoping it will be fun no matter what!
