Hi. I'm Julie- the blond tornado that runs this website.
I started out as a Mommy blogger in 2007, trying desperately to reach the outside world while buried underneath some nasty post partum depression, three children, and no money. I was 27 and very lonely. I wrote and wrote and wrote, baffled when I saw more than 30 people reading it.
Like most people, my path to a career hasn't been straight. And I'm still not exactly sure where I'm headed. I do know this -- I love to write and educate. I love to make people think. I enjoy everything to do with WordPress, tech, theater, food, and social media. #Random. I also have a bad habit of using hashtags in normal conversation.
I have a weird addiction to magnets and mason jars, I enjoy quotes (and have a 600 page book of them to read at night), and wish I could be the funniest person on Twitter ever, but I'm not.
Julie DeNeen.com is technically an online magazine, though it feels absurdly arrogant to say that. Really, it's just a place to keep up with everything I'm doing, writing, and saying on the Interwebz. I'm in a lot of places, on every social media channel possible, and I have several blogs. You can stalk me wherever and however you want (preferably with chocolates on my doorstep every morning. Minimum 60% cacao).
Some of you may not give a shit about anything except how I can help you on your blog. It's selfish, but whatever. Go ahead and visit my fully independent and kick ass tech blog Fabulousblogging.com. If you prefer to read all my OpEd pieces on psychology, women, real food, vacations, etc... then just stay here. And, if any of you have any desire to engage in all things religious and
crazy charismatic, head over to GodOutside.com and read about my epic struggle with my faith.
I realize your time is limited and the Internet is full of cats and quizzes, so I appreciate you checking in. I'll try to keep you entertained!
As for subscribing, I have something called The Daily. You'll see it below. It's a quick snapshot of the world of Julie, plus helpful content whenever and wherever I find it. I offer tips, recipes, quirky anecdotes, a read of the day, a tweet of the day, and more -- all in bite-sized pieces. I promise no spam and no click bait ever.
