Just a mom doing mom things. And writing, lots of writing.

I began this journey in 19xx - ah - who needs an age. Suffice it to say I've been around awhile. There was never a point when I wasn't writing something. In 2013, I made it official and jumped into political blogging. Getting paid to do something I loved was absolutely the greatest thing since sliced bread. After bouncing around in politics, I landed in the vast world of SEO writing. From there I have written on a variety of subjects, learned the ins and outs of the industry, and honed my writing skills. I'm still just a mom, but I have some mad writing and editing abilities!
