Welcome to the Blog. So... What Should We Talk About?

Since I closed up shop on my fashion blog a little more than a year ago, I have been looking for a place to share my thoughts. Not about style anymore, per se (although that's certainly part of what I do), but about writing. About the process. About this crazy ride that is freelance writing. 

A lot of people have come to me over the past couple years to ask me how I got into freelancing, and how they might be able to do it, too. I've never quite known how to answer. I've tried, but what resulted was a muddled and oversimplified version of the real deal. There was so much to say on the topic. It's so vast, so expansive, and always a little different for everyone.

But I'm going to do my best to finally come up with a suitable answer. My answer is this blog.

I know there are a lot of writing blogs out there, blogs about freelancing, and they are phenomenal. I read them. I admire what those writers have built. But my blog? We're going to do things a little differently. We're going to make this blog a fun ride.

I don't want my site to read "business-y," because I think you can find that elsewhere. I'd rather it be like a chat with friends about a topic we're passionate about: writing. Aren't those the best conversations? I think it'll make for a great blog experience, too.

With that in mind, I want to leave you with one question: What do
you want to talk about? Seriously. I don't want to be the long-winded friend who doesn't let anyone else get a word in! You pick the topics; I will discuss with you. Sound cool? Leave me a comment.

Thank you for joining me. I'm so excited to chat!



  1. I know you write about dating and relationships sometimes, so I think you will enjoy an outside-the box book called Confessions of a Middle-Aged Babe Magnet. It's funny and enlightening. Check it out at

  2. Hi, Jenna!
    You recently posted a story: ‘Hey, Handicap’: Neighbor Leaves Horrible Note On Amputee’s Car. It was a good story, but it left your readers hanging. What happened? Did they rude woman get her comeuppance? Did her car get towed? What did the disabled woman do? Most apartment and condo complexes have towing companies on speed dial to tow away cars illegally parked. What good does it do to post in on social media? Was that all she did? And what happened? This was a very incomplete reporting job. Warmly, Fred
