I am honored to be here with you. I started out being a blogger in 2009. I was horrible! I shared what I did for the day. Talked about the weather, etc.


Then I shared my feelings one day. I was hurting, and needed someone to talk to. It was absolutely amazing. I got ten or twelve comments from people helping me with soothing words.

I saw the light!

People didn’t want to hear about my everyday adventures. They wanted to find hope themselves. Several of the comments mentioned that.

So, I went from one new subscriber a week to 50 subscribers a day.

The rest is history. I surpassed 110,000 thousand before I was hacked.

Now I am starting over. Nothing has changed. I am still sending out hope and comfort. We just need to regroup, and get the subscriptions going again.


I am a veteran. I am a retired teacher, and now I am an author. It has been a fantastic journey. I hope to be with you for many more years. Go to www.dougbolton.com to find out about my books. They are called, “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World,” and “Signs of Hope for the military: In an Out of the Trenches of Life.” The second one will be out by next fall.

I write two blogs now. My author site is: www.dougbolton.com
