I’m so excited and so anxious to be beginning this journey with you!! If you are here on September 1, 2015, Thank You for checking in to see what this is all about!
I hope you will take a look around the site at the About and My Journey pages to see a bit more about why I am doing this, and why it is so important to me. But in the meantime, let me share a little bit with you here!
A Facebook acquaintance of mine had posted the above quote to her status just last week and while I was preparing to get this thing started I just knew how perfect it was. Perhaps once you get to see what it is that I do you might not exactly think of me as a “journalist,” but just for fun’s sake I looked up the definition…
noun jour·nal·ism \ˈjər-nə-ˌli-zəm\
: the activity or job of collecting, writing, and editing news stories for newspapers, magazines, television, or radio” (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/journalism)
Perhaps not your traditional “news,” “papers,” “magazines,” etc., but screw the formalities!
Here’s the low down-
My goal here is to make it as easy as possible for you to verify sources through my links and content. If you read an article and say to yourself “yeah, but where is the proof?” I’m here to give you a list with a few thoughts for consideration, quotes, and direct links to that “proof.” I aspire to be a one-stop shop destination for verification.
I aspire to be a journalist, a curator, a seeker of truth, a lover of knowledge, an educator.. and, a mom. After all, it is the little ones and their bright futures that we need to protect.
I don’t intend to fill my posts with rewording of the same information you see over and over again or leave you hanging with “crazy” claims and no sources. I aim to give you simple direct quotes and verifiable source links.
SO, I have some things up my sleeves to start. I don’t know if I will have any real connected flow yet in what I choose to offer to start. It’s all so new to me, so I’m going to work it out as I go. IF you have questions or suggestions on things that you would like for me to cover please hit me up on my Contact page and I will see what I can do!
I anticipate my first full INFO post will be ready to go either today (Tuesday 9/1) or tomorrow!
Until then, here is my promise to you…..
