I began blogging in 2008. I had to learn to create and write on websites for my technical writing courses. We began a portfolio assignment and I simultaneously taught myself and my students how to create a website.
It was during this experience that I began to see the possibilities of a business through new media. I began with two sites (Tamarack and Light Refreshments) and began a podcast called Spectacular Belly Flops (about the AMAZING flops and splats that we all take – especially those who create). I did it with my siblings and it was a lot of fun and taught me some amazing and valuable lessons. I think that it could have gone somewhere, but in the end, due to sibling rivalry 😉 (no, really it was due to creative differences) it ended.
Then I began my publishing company in 2011, when I got my first iPhone and WAS overwhelmed with the possibilities of eBooks. It’s been quite a journey, but more on that later.
I do love having a platform to put out my ideas. My own little newspaper, or book.
I just finished a page for this site in which I’ve highlighted my blogs and made them easy to find. You can check it out here. It’s all part of a new phase of my believing in myself and my abilities and talents.
