Terra’s Blog

I started blogging for myself in 2010 as a way to build a portfolio of my style.

My posts are about my life and what interests me, documenting personal and professional topics covering quitting a job to write for a living, a sobering health diagnosis, and lighter topics of babysitting nephews and raising and releasing monarch butterflies.

This is a personal creative outlet, and my opinions. Readers have called it ‘clever, authentic, humorous, thought-provoking, timely, and whimsical.’ I just think of it as my space to tell my own story, as it continues to unfold.

Note: I blogged weekly for several years before scaling back to reduce screen time, and then to manage a health crisis. Now that I am back in a space where I can continue writing about myself and what interests me, I choose purposely to ponder topics for a long time before setting down to the keyboard for what usually becomes a long-form essay.

That means, dear reader, less frequent, but far more meaningful posts. Thank you for accompanying me on this journey.
