My Blog & how it Started

I’ve been writing stories since I was 6 years old. I won first place for a story I wrote in first grade. Since then, I’ve enjoyed writing stories and poetry. I don’t really write poetry anymore. I like writing about current events, other people’s stories and about my life, the life of an El Paso Woman :). I took a five-year break from writing in 2010. My friend and fellow WP blogger, Ryan Loera, asked me if I would help him write in his blog and e-zine and I said yes! I eventually decided to start my own blog. I’ve worked as a reporter and freelance writer for many years throughout my life. I plan on writing a fiction book or two in the future. I am also looking for freelance writing opportunities at this time.

Some advice for Fellow Bloggers…

Be yourself and use your own voice whenever you are writing. You might think it sounds ridiculous or weird but I can guarantee someone out there will like it. Try not to be afraid of rejection. Keep writing/blogging during good or bad times! Writing will always be there for you. I consider writing my true friend and passion. People have come and gone from my life but writing will never leave me or my soul. I will continue being loyal to writing.

My Nominations…

Congratulations! It’s no biggie if you don’t accept awards. Please just know I appreciate you and enjoy your blog.

  2. You’re welcome 🙂 and thank you! I’ve enjoyed your writing! Please don’t feel like you have to participate. The award is to show I enjoy your blog. If you ever feel up to it, I left the link for you with the questions, etc. It takes some time to do. Thanks again for the support! 🙂


  3. Congratulations and thank you so much for the nomination. I haven’t learned WordPress well enough to participate in awards (I recently learned how to link to an article and post a picture) that is about the extent of anything fancy that I can do. Please know I follow you and I appreciate that you follow me. Keep writing and I’ll keep reading! Thank you so much!! 🙂
