January is a good month for a fresh start

Fresh starts are always stimulating or at least there's always an intrigue to know what it's going to be like.
When Wikinut announced us that they were going to stop payment because of lack of traffic, I felt a bit disappointed. I know I was not a great earner, but the fact that I knew that I could earn money doing what I love best was uplifting.
I stayed away for some weeks, thinking about whether continuing writing without payment or giving up.
Writing without payment is a bit off putting, but then I thought that I wasn't making a lot of money and that there was not going to be much difference if I did it for free. After all, I love writing and writing a couple of pages every morning helps me to be upbeat for the rest of a day. It's sort of tonic. It is the same as getting up to have a shower, to have a good breakfast and to go out for a brisk walk.
I've registered on a new account, because I had problems to log on this site using my past pen name and password and because I don't have much patience to try over and over again, I decided that it was better to register with a new account. After all January is a fresh and new month that makes us wonder what the year is going to be like.
My topics won't be a lot more different from those I wrote in past years, because I love travel writing and to write about places off the beaten track. I love eating and, therefore, I'm interesting in writing on food and gastronomy linked to the landscape where these traditional dishes were started originally for some reason.
I also write fictional stories, but what I want most is to create a good portfolio that I can present to a potential editor elsewhere, because I aim to live on what I love doing most -writing, if only modestly.
So, here am I on a new account to write pages on a variety of topics for anyone who wants to read and comment them. I always like people to comment my articles whether they are on agreement or not, but if done politely, it can't be offensive, but it can really help us to improve our writing, ideas and thoughts.
January is a great month for a new and fresh start with the intrigue of guessing what lays ahead of us.
