"For me, examiner has been a good starting point. I started blogging over a year ago, but knew I wanted to expand my writing to an "real" audience. I had guest blogged on a few sites to good feedback and when I discovered the examiner.com…"
"I love having that freedom to express myself and the power that writing brings to me. I love blogging--I finally found an outlet that allows me to breathe! Those voices in my head stir around for awhile and then boom...out they go! Pure joy."
I've been writing since I was a small child...I knew at the age of 5 that I would be a writer...my path in life may have taken me many places but my hand has always been busy! Stories, journals, editing, and now blogging which I LOVE! I feel like I can finally breathe.
I'd now like to freelance write as I could use the cash; I'd also like to edit other's copy, proofread, whatever. I worked in an ad agency for awhile so I have that background also. Plus I write and proof ALL of my husband's materials for his consulting business because he has no sense of grammar or spelling whatsoever--he's pathetic; nice, but pathetic. :)
I'm also an avid reader. I never go anywhere without a book in hand. This year is amazing because all of my favorite writers have books out or coming out: Conroy (it was ok :(); John Irving (reading now), and Niffenegger (weird, of course but loved it) to name a few.
So that's me! I hope to meet many of you soon as well...thank you.
