In 2013, I decided to start blogging. I opened an account with blogspot and set the goal to post every day for a first year. On my birthday in 2014, I achieved that goal. I continued writing and posting until I heard that ChicagoNow was looking for bloggers in the Chicagoland area. In September of 2016, I pitched a blog on positivity called Looking For The Good and began blogging there. I have reviewed restaurants and movies, interviewed various people, and wrote about my life and random thoughts over the years. We were notified last month that Chicago Tribune, who oversees ChicagoNow, is closing us down, so I am heading back.

All through my day, no matter where I go, or what I do, I am always looking for the good in people, in the world, in my life or even just in my day.

Susan Schulhof

While it is easy to focus on the negative aspects of life, I choose to continue looking for the good in people and in the world around me, and I want to share why they do what they do. I am the proud mother of three adult daughters and live in the Chicago area. I have worked in the Early Childhood Education field since 2001, and I write books when the inspiration comes.
