Not very long ago I sent out a cry for help. What astonished me was the response I received. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought so many people would be willing to help me out. I am so grateful.
I Am Grateful
How many responded? It was 16 and counting. All I can say is, “WOW!” Many are just as busy as I am, and their thoughtfulness is so very heartfelt. In the end, I had to make a decision. Some I’ve turned down, knowing that they had little time for themselves, much less to help me. Some have offered an occasional guest post, to which I have happily agreed. To say I am grateful for all this outpouring of care and support is an understatement. So who are these awesome people who will be regular contributing writers to Finding Our Way Now LLC? Let me introduce you to the lineup.
Current Contributing Writers I Am Grateful For
Jeri Walker-Bickett @JeriWB Author & Editor
Jeri has been a contributing writer for Finding Our Way Now LLC for a while now. She will continue to offer her thoughts on all things wine and a short story or two. When she’s not doing stuff for me, she writes short stories, creative nonfiction, and psychological suspense. The rough Idaho mining town she grew up in populates her literary landscape. She also works as a freelance editor and happens to be my own editor when I’m working on a new project.
Scott Huntington – Freelance Writer
Scott has been a regular contributor for a time now offering his thoughts and insights about all things wine. He is a freelance writer and journalist who happens to be a wine enthusiast. Scott lives in Pennsylvania with his wife and young son with a new addition on the way. He writes about a wide variety of things he finds interesting in the world in which we live.
New Contributing Writers I Am Grateful For
Before I tell you a bit about each of these awesome people, I would like to say that I consider each and every one of them my friend. Our friendships developed and grew from our online presence – from LinkedIn, a mastermind group, or just by simply stumbling onto my blog and commenting. However our friendship started, I am blessed to have each and every one of these individuals as my friend.
Jeannette Paladino @Write Speak Sell
Jeannette will be offering up stories from time to time that are centered on jobs, career and work issues. She is a social media writer, blogger and project manager helping organizations build brand awareness, increase revenues, and engage employees as brand advocates on social media. She offers specific ideas about how to incorporate social media into your marketing plan in an effort to reach your customers, employees and other target audiences. It will be fun to see what comes from Jeannette.
Patricia Weber @Patricia Weber
Patricia is a ball of energy. She will be writing stories that are all about introverts and baby boomer issues and concerns. If you know her, you will find this of no surprise. 🙂 She is on a mission to inspire and support introverts and baby boomers alike to access more energy to live life at full-throttle. I can’t wait to see what she has to say.
Glynis Jolly @Speculations Impressed
Glynis Jolly is working on some fun and healthy recipes that she knows we would all enjoy. She is an unpublished writer working on her first fictional book. She’s married and has a son and a stepdaughter. She’s lived in Colorado, Crete (Greece), Michigan, and now lives in Tennessee for the second time with her husband and three cats. Keep a look out for these recipes; I know you’ll love to see what she shares.
Pat Ruppel @Plain Talk & Ordinary Wisdom
Like me, Pat loves to write short stories, so that’s what you’ll be seeing from her in the near future. She believes it’s possible to make a difference in the world through writing to inspire and to warm the heart. That is what she hopes to do as well on Finding Our Way Now.
Pat believes when we’re most relaxed with family, friends, catching up or exploring conversations with new people, that’s when magic happens. Pat feels anything is possible when we find a common bond, whether it’s talking around the kitchen table or writing a story. Hearts are touched and connections are made when we identify with one another enough to trust and share. I couldn’t agree more.
Lenie Hokansson @Frugal For Everyone
Lenie will be presenting us with some great recipes that will be easy, delicious and inexpensive. She resides in Ontario, Canada where she learned to live frugally, born out of being a farmer’s wife, a mother of seven boys and an executive director for a non-profit charity. She believes life should be lived to the fullest, starting each morning by giving thanks for another new day. It will be fun to see what she brings to the table.
Heather Lee @The Little Design Lab
Heather is a contributing Graphics Designer to Finding Our Way Now LLC. She has had many years experience as a graphic designer in both the advertising and publishing industry. She enjoys helping others by providing solutions to visual problems for print and the web. So keep an eye out for some of her images in some of the upcoming guest posts.
I have to say it again, I am grateful! Not only to these amazing and generous friends, but to the many who have offered their help and support. I am very much blessed. So starting in August, you’ll be seeing these writers. Sprinkled here and there will be a few guest posts that will be just plain fun. When you see one of these contributing writers pop up, please give them a shout with a comment or two, offering them the same support they have offered me.
I am grateful as life’s journey continues…
