Hello and welcome! I’m Tonya, also known as Writer Wife to a wonderful husband and Writer Mom to a busy two-year-old daughter and another baby girl, who is due to join us this fall — all while working a full-time desk job and trying to get back into the swing of writing.
My all-time favorite thing to do is get up early and sit down at the computer with a steaming cup of coffee (and maybe a little something sweet) and brainstorm my next article or blog post. I started writing articles for Associated Content in 2009 (which was later purchased by Yahoo! and eventually shut down). Meanwhile, I wrote for various other content sites as well. My topics of interest included, but were not limited to, home improvement (I hold an associate’s degree in Interior Design); pets (we have 3 cats and a dog!); and anything ‘green’.
After that, I worked a little on various blogs and dabbled in fiction writing… That was fun, but my half-finished novel was set aside after I became pregnant with my first child and hasn’t been picked up since. Becoming a parent changes your life in a big way, and priorities are often shifted around, meaning the things you enjoy might end up on the wayside.
I want to change that, though, which is why I have decided to take my writing business seriously again. Writing and parenting are my life’s passions, and my goal is to eventually be able to do both full time. On this blog, I will primarily be writing about parenting, travel, and home-inspired topics.
