The Short Version
Fadra Nally works as a social media professional and lives the suburban life just outside of Baltimore, MD. When she’s not chasing after her son, dogs, cats, and husband, she spends her time writing about the interesting things in life and dreaming about her next adventure.
Hometown: Eldersburg, MD (in the DC-Baltimore metropolitan area)
Favorite book: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. A stunning piece of work!
Favorite movie of all time: The Shawshank Redemption “Get busy living or get busy dying”
Best piece of advice I ever received: Experience everything life has to offer – given to me by my theater professor in college shortly before graduation.
Something unexpected about me: When I was growing up, my career goals included actress, astronaut, and Miss Universe. I didn’t achieve any of them but I think it’s worked out okay.
The Longer Version
I started my blog in 2009 as a way to showcase my writing so I could land a real job. You see, I didn’t set out to be a blogger. I spent years in research, teaching, travel, software, and marketing. After I found myself on the government payroll (re: unemployment) for the second time in a year, I decided to go find myself.
I discovered I love to write. It only took me a few decades to figure it out but I love telling stories, inspiring others, making people laugh. And if I can do any of those on any given day, it’s a more successful day than I ever had at the office.
As for my personal life, I’m everything I claim to be: a wife, mother, writer, blogger, marketer, explorer, do-gooder, and lover of life. I’ve lived in Maryland, Ohio, North Carolina, and recently made my way back to my Maryland where I’m living the suburban life just outside of Baltimore.
