My sister-in-law, Miss Karol, sent me the link to write for SheKnows. I think they are looking for the domestic Goddess, Mother blogger types. But, I sent in a note anyway. I’m working on the ‘what can it hurt’ theory.
This is what I sent (image not included):
Tonight I’m listening to Godzilla roar and knock over most of Tokyo (via Roku) while I change WordPress themes. I’m craving a really good, juicy steak or possibly a rich, gooey chocolate cake. I’m almost 50 (December) and I’m trying to lose weight. It’s not easy. But, divorce wasn’t easy. Not having children when I thought I’d have at least 5 of them at one point, was not easy. Looking forward to menopause is not easy – but sometimes I do look forward to it.
I’d like to write for SheKnows because I like to try new things. Also, I’d like to see more women my age, my weight and spinster-like, have a voice. I know I’m not the only woman my age online. Yet most of the blogs and sites I read seem to be written by women who are forever 20-something with high heels and small, adorable children.
That’s 148 words so I will skip right to the links and writing background.
These are my own sites – in various stages of revamping and repair:
There are more but these four are in better shape. Especially as I have just been ripping up my themes and sidebar clutter tonight.
I have written for other networks, most of which are gone now. I currently write for Squidoo and HubPages (off and on). You can find links to these accounts and my social media in the top navigation bar on my sites. Also, on Word Grrls the About page has details about sites I have written for in my earlier days online (1996 to now).
My name is Laura Brown and I Am Canadian! (I love that video on YouTube). My email is firstname.lastname@example.org or Twitter me @thatgrrl. My phone is not mobile – 705 797 0387 but it is very obedient.
Thanks for reading!
I really was watching Godzilla tonight too. It gave me the idea for a post which I wrote on Word Grrls.
