What is the Blog Hop?
The Blog Hop, hosted by Robin at Pensieve, was created as an at-home opportunity for bloggers to meet and greet during BlogHer’s annual conference. Bloggers are invited to write a short introductory post about themselves and their blog to broaden their online community. Intro posts are linked to the Blog Hop site and participants are encouraged to hop around and “meet” as many new friends as they’re able to!
Hello and welcome to Mowenackie! The name is strange, but so is the author, so it all works out.
Eight months ago, my husband deployed to Afghanistan. I was determined to get through this second deployment more gracefully than I did the first – when I was a whining, quivering, shivering mass of insecurity and misery.
I soul-searched for some ways to keep myself productive and happy. Writing, as always, bubbled to the top of my list. I have wanted to write for as long as I could read. I wrote and illustrated my first book at eight-years old. Then life got in the way and I had to get a job and eat and all of that boring grown-up stuff.
Fast-forward to the Age of the Blogosphere. The ‘Sphere is a place where I can post my writing and be held accountable for doing so consistently. And I can use it as another way to connect with my still-deployed husband, who makes up 50% of my loyal subscribers! (Thanks, baby!)
However. Being a military wife is way down on the list of terms I would use to describe myself. First and foremost, I’m me – a little crazy, a little OCD, a little bit funny and a whole lot over-analyzer.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll join me in the quest to figure out this deliciously complicated thing we call…life.
