My latest opinions from the blog…
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.
I had no idea there was an entire underworld of Mommy bloggers just inches from my fingertips.
As the years went by, I started to branch out of my little area of the web and began to connect with other Mom bloggers. As it turned out, I realized that I could write.
This all happened not nearly as neatly as this About Page. But I’m supposed to be summarizing quickly since you Internet readers can’t bear to read much more than 140 characters. I do write in snippets on Twitter, if you are so inclined.
Anyhow, back to writing. I started dabbling in copywriting, novel writing, memoir writing. I published a very controversial memoir about my trainwreck of a life. I earned myself about 15 minutes of unwanted fame.
Once all that died down and I came back to reality, I discovered that my teaching skills- combined with my tech skills- made a very nice pair. Like cheese and wine.
I started an online business called Fabulous Blogging, which deals with all aspects of running a website, blog, and online presence. I have to say, it’s going well.
I wish I had a great conclusion paragraph to add here about how I’m a full-time novelist or a fortune 500 tech company, but I have no such credentials. I’m still a Mom, still a blogger, a writer, a tech geek, foodie, and designer.
I’m glad you’re here. I hope you find something worth staying for.
