Join the Ultimate Blog Party 2014 #UBP14 & $50 Amazon Reader Appreciation Gift Card Giveaway

I have been blogging since 2006 and I started my own blog in 2009. I have been writing since the 80’s. However, it was really my entry into the blogging world that really made me feel comfortable. I had found my people.

I mainly started blogging to share products with people and to chronicle our lives. I had tried scrapbooking but I loved doing everything online so blogging was a perfect fit. These are the people that I blog for along with my readers:

First Day of School

While my kids are a little older than this picture, I think that this picture so perfectly shows their personalities that I keep it on the desktop of my computer.

Now it has been five years and what started as an online blog has grown into a full time job along with a full service social media marketing and blogger outreach company. I co-founded the company, Social Media Chicks with my business partner and friend, Piera Jolly of Jolly Mom. It has been an amazing five years and I cannot imagine slowing down anytime soon.

Thanks for visiting my blog and make certain to leave a comment telling me where you blog so I can go visit you as well. Join the rest of the bloggers in The Ultimate Blog Party where you can visit new blogs and enter some great giveaways.
