The Type A Lifestyle Blog Will Be Coming to an End

Filed in Living by on April 27, 2017 9 Comments

All good things must end, as they say, and it is time for me to retire again, this time from my blog. I’ve really enjoyed writing the 200+ articles I have posted over the last four years. I’ve tried to be honest in sharing my thoughts and feelings, because I believed it would make no sense to have a blog and do otherwise, and you have been honest with me in return with your comments. Thank you for that.

I was fortunate to have had a few notable successes with my blog along the way. The article “The Feeling Wheel,” which explains how to use a behavioral therapy tool I learned about in counseling, is the #1 internet link produced by Google when someone searches on the term “feeling wheel.” Apparently many people have found my explanation of how to use the wheel useful. I have had 30,000 page views of this post, and continue to generate 30 – 35 new page views every single day!

In a success that is certainly less intellectually based, I have had 1,300 page views of my article “Lady Gaga Does It Again,” almost certainly generated by the racy picture of her that accompanies the article. Oh well, I’ll take it!

Lastly, “Dr. Laura” featured one of my posts, “The 10 Things Many Parents Fail to Teach Their Children,” on her nationwide radio program. This has resulted in 500 page views of that article to date.

Thanks for your support over the last several years, and I hope we cross paths again soon.

    Tim – you’re right, all good things must end. I will definitely miss your wisdom and sense of humor in these articles. You not only brought honesty but at times bared your very soul, not an easy task. Al and I are really happy that you’re not retiring from Clermont!!!

    Hello Tim –
    I’m so sorry to hear that this chapter in your life has came to an end. I just found out about your blogs about an hour ago, while doing more reading & research about the very unfortunate Holocaust by the nazi regime.
    I found your article to be a really good read, “The Value of a Human Life” Now, I look forward to reading some of your other work. Best of luck to you in everything else you are working on, and will be working on in the future!
    Happy Holidays to you & yours.

    – Robin
