I have always loved creative writing. I've never yearned to write a book, but I love writing short articles. My love was reignited in January of 2011, when I entered a contest to be a blogger at the large insurance/investment company where I work. I won the contest and became a regular blogger. For the most part I get to write about whatever I want, although occasionally I am
I usually publish a work blog one or two times a month. The corporate blog is published weekly and I share the space with two other writers. Sometimes we are replaced by a guest post from some executive up on high. At work, I never get to write a blog post as often as I want, and once in a while my suggested topic is not approved. So in March of 2012 I started a quilting blog, PugMom Quilts! There you can read all about my quilting adventures and my three adorable pug boys. I also share photos of my garden. I love my quilting blog because it combines all of my passions: writing, photography, and quilting into one!
So, why another blog? Because I love to write (and I love your feedback and enthusiasm) and I don't want to lose all my wonderful columns that you haven't gotten to read. Plus, I will be adding more (this is where all the non-quilting, non-pug columns that I write will reside).
If you'd like to read more about my quilting and writing process, read this post.
Thanks for joining me on another wild ride!
Pugs and kisses,
