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.
It turns out blogging is my passion because above all else, I’m a storyteller. Whether it’s tales from my life or stories about my travels or experiences as a mom or my thoughts on the best new widget out there, I’m here to tell stories that hopefully inspire you, make you laugh, make you cry, but more than anything, I hope it makes you come back.
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.
I’m one of those career women. I went to school, got my degree, embarked on a career (several actually). I traveled a lot and finally met the man of my dreams. We’re over a decade into our marriage and have an extremely bright, precocious, and quite temperamental son. Just like his parents. Although it wasn’t our intention, he’ll probably be the dreaded only child in this family but I’m finally okay with that.
I don’t actually consider myself a mommy blogger, but I’m not offended if you call me one. I am a mom and will blog about it from time to time. Why? Because out of everything I’ve done, it’s the greatest accomplishment in my life.
So here I am with my own blog. Seemingly a jack of all trades but master of none. However, what I do know, I love to share. I hope you’ll join me for my personal insights on all things that cross my path.
For my professional insight, I’d love for you to visit me over at Social Dialect where I blog about blogging and social media.
For my passion for social good, please join me on Charitable Influence where I work on connecting nonprofits, NGOs, and charities with the bloggers who want to help them.
For my professional experience as a writer, blogger, and marketer, please feel free to look at my LinkedIn profile.
