It’s become more apparent to me that a) this is not a legal website blog; ¬†although it’s posted on one, b) it’s the type of blog that marketed properly can establish a big reach.

The personal blog of a recovering Catholic who is disgusted over what he sees going on out there, who happens at this point in his life to be directed to be an attorney, practicing probate administration, wills and trusts, and estate planning, and who is getting an advanced degree in soap opera, grief and the breakdown of society in the act of discharging his practice.

Anyone “tuning in” could very much enjoy and be educated.

Got called while in church. The ex-wife of a friend is giving me all this information about how he’s now in the hospital, there’s questions about his pension, he needs a will, he’s not following doctor’s orders, and on and on. Normal Sunday.

This morning called her to tell her events have intervened, so that I can’t do my Boy Scouts good deed and take him to the Registry. He will not physically be able to go anyway.

You handle people’s most personal affairs and you oftentimes can’t escape being drawn in to the grief, conflicts and tragedies that their lives entail. The price YOU pay in order to gain wisdom (which comes through suffering).

Read a book years ago, “How to blog and make $100,000 a year”. I’ll let the Marketing Director do that with this blog. Should pay her bills.

This blog shares, out of the authority of my own experience, the basis for strength and hope to cope with life, on life’s terms, while trying to help people negotiate the minefield of life when it comes to death, and it’s aftermath. Have probated wills written in 1983. Had to file late formals for estates the heirs waited 4 years to decide to probate. And all other types of situations.

Plus the drafting of plans, wills, etc. for everyone from rich dentists, divorces, the young couple concerned about who would raise their kids, to the businessman who already stands to inherit from 3 different relatives.
