About me

Originally an ad agency writer and creative director, I gave up full time for freelance in 2009. Now in addition to client work, I write for various magazines, I’ve blogged on Huff Post and I’ve just finished a first draft of a book. And of course I’ve been blogging here on WordPress for 13 years.

I’ve had several blogs on various topics, from ranting on marketing to being a film festival junkie, but this one — 365 — has lasted the longest — since 2012 and it’s still going. I think being curious is my salvation. When you want to know something about everything, you never run out of things to talk about. And write about.

It working is all I know. I’m still here, sharing my thoughts with you. And hopefully you will also share yours, with me.

  1. So glad I found your blog! You’ve been such a wonderful supporter of mine. Your gravatar profile doesn’t list your blog. You may want to think about adding this wonderful blog to your gravatar profile! All the best…Pat aka Bookpeeps

    • Thank you so much! I am glad that you enjoy my blog. You already know I am a huge fan of yours. And thanks for the tip about my gravatar profile. I am going to see if I can figure that out right now.

    • Thanks again for the tip. I managed to update my gravatar profile without losing my mind. See you on WordPress. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

      • Terrific and so glad you didn’t lose your mind! šŸ™‚ So many more bloggers will now discover your wonderful blogs. Thanks always for your compliments and support! Keep writing!

      • I wish more wordpress bloggers would take the time to go look at their profile when someone clicks on their gravatar. I think that would be a good post for another one of your days! šŸ˜‰
        It is so nice to click on someone after you have read a comment of theirs that interests you and be able to swing right on over to their blog without having to figure out the address! I think that would generate a lot more traffic for them too. I know that this was posted last year but was wandering through your archives and found this topic and thought it was a good one!
        Actually I think that is how I found you…
        You commented and I liked what you had to say and clicked on ya! And your address was there! So many times a lot of people will just move on if we are too hard to find.

      • I always check out the blogs of people who write comments on my blog. And when I see interesting comments left on other blogs. I’m just curious about them and what they have to say.

    • I am the one who is honoured. I have to say, I have received so much recognition recently it is overwhelming. In a good way, obviously. What thrills me the most, though, is hearing that the things I write about resonates. It’s all any writer wants. Thank you very much. Fransi

    • :). Thank you. I do have sort of a moratorium on awards. I have been blessed with sort of an embarrassment of riches here on WordPress. Wrote a post on it a while back. BUT, i love the spirit in which this one was intended, so I am happy (see I didn’t use very) to accept it. I must warn you, though, that I will be breaking some of the rules. Thanks again.

    • Congratulations, Kate; and thank you very much for the nod. So sorry to hear about your uncle. You know, I have had a moratorium on awards, But under the circumstances I am thrilled to accept. Although I didn’t know Your Uncle Jim, I will accept in his honour as well.

  3. I don’t know what I would do if I HAD to write something every day. Pressure!
    The words in my head would probably vanish like smoke in a strong wind, and leave me wandering in mental darkness searching for one morsel of thought! šŸ˜‰

    • Oh I just wanted to see if I had it in me. I like challenges and I loved it. I miss it, actually, but it is very time consuming and between the blog and client work I had no time left for my book. I will do it again, one day, though:)
