Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
Happily married (most of the time) with two awesome sons ages 14 and 10. A school volunteer currently serving as Fillmore Band Booster's President, a foundation committee, and am a G.A.T.E parent representative.
I started a blog two years ago but due to a family member's loosing battle with cancer and some unfortunate family fallout afterward, I have been on blogging hiatus. I'm anxious to get back into it and make some cash for my efforts to supplement my freelancing gigs..
I have written guest articles for an e-zine called Really Good Quotes, am published in an anthology with international writers whom I practice my skills and procrastinate with on a writers website called My Writer's Circle.
What is your blogging philosophy?
Hmm...blogging philosophy? Never philosophized about blogging.
The reason I blog is because it's an outlet and a way to sharpen my writing skills. I like sharing information and I am opinionated. I am passionate about music education after teaching it as a consultant last year. I am also an advocate for children's environmental health.
In 2000, I built a website for the Playground Planning Committee where we did fund-raising to replace playground equipment that had been deemed unsafe by some political representative's hound dog. Interestingly, the old equipment didn't cause anything more than a scratch for forty years but the new equipment that was considered safe, resulted in four broken arms and three broken legs from 2001to 2004.
I did a blog and my son and I did a commercial for Measure E, a local measure to raise funds to improve our deteriorating schools. It passed and the blogsite has been removed as was the Playground Planing Committee's website and update blog.
I have been blogging since...
What's more important, quantity or length of time?

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
The class was open to 30 women. Only 11 ended up registering (which isn't bad for the first time around). Registration was open right up until the day syllabuses went out. This way I wounldn't have to worry about filling in new students in the midst of also staying on top of lessons.
But I will definitely keep you in mind when the next class starts. And thanks for the well wishes! Talk to you soon.
Thank you for your interest in the free online writing class for women. Unfortunately registration is now closed. But since there was such a nice tunr out I will be offering more writing classes in the very near future (the first course is only a month long, so the next one should start before the end of the year). To make sure you're kept int he loop the next time classes begin Join Mommy Writers online.
We've come to that moment of parenthood that came much too quickly for my preference, but nevertheless, it's here. We are now looking into high schools for my first-born. I've always been a private-school, Catholic school kid & parent so now we're transitioning to the public school system. I've decided to go out of my comfort zone because we're fortunate to belong to an awesome school district with great high school pathway options. I've done some outside research & now it's a matter…
...This week has been a true test of my sheer will and strength as a mother--sending my 13-year-old, my first-born off on a 5-day retreat miles away, off the grid---no contact! It's been emotional--up & down--happy for him, worried for him, excited for him then missing him. Very much missing him. And I survived. My Huz has survived (barely) & his younger brother (very bonded to him) also survived. We missed him SO SO much!! But we love him and want him to experience…
