I began with Seed Generator and got enough information to allow me to dig in and get my head around the numbers and the task ahead. I still feel very new but I'm beginning to get an inkling of what I'm looking for.
Area 1 I have some teaching experience and some postgraduate study (pure mathematics). Area 2 is a big life problem I have faced and come through (infertility). Area 3 is parenting.
I have learnt a great deal about my strengths and interests in the last few months. I have pages and pages of ideas I'd love to research or write or make. I've discovered that a lot of people think of me as a creative and practical problem solver always willing to look at difficult areas of life. I've realised that although I don't think of myself as an expert I do have valuable life experience which can be of help to others.
I might be able to find a corner in one of the first two areas that was narrow enough to be doable but I have some doubts.
- Could I really create high quality (profitable) mathematical content? I'm not a professor.
- Would I find constantly engaging with the pain of infertility too draining? It's also a controversial area, that might be tough.
Reading a lot of forum threads looking for insight and advice (over 2000? Between 20,000 and 60,000?) I am convinced I need to find a topic that makes my heart sing. I love books especially children's books, especially books that solve a problem or inspire and those that are beautifully illustrated. I completely discounted anything in this area initially assuming it is far too competitive. Should I investigate a bit and see if there is some corner I could work in?
Should I export my MKL, clear it and start again with three new topics (perhaps one being older parent/mother)?
I need help and would greatly appreciate it. I hope I'm posting in the right place, if not please do move this query.
Thank you for reading!
