Back in late 2015 I started a blog.
I realize that there are a ba-jillion blogs out on the interweb, but I didn't care. This wasn't a lifestyle blog, I wasn't planning to make money off of it and I wasn't going to be collaborating with any products, services or companies.
I simply started the blog because my life was about to take a major upheaval. Leaving my life, job, family and friends all behind in the city I grew up in to start a new life with my fiancee in his hometown of Grande Prairie, AB.
Fast forward to 2018, two and a half years after moving here, my life has significantly changed. One child, a wedding, 2 jobs, 3 nannies, a basement renovation and a partridge in a pear tree later, my life is finally starting to feel as normal as it can at this stage.
But the intention of the blog was really just a very public platform to vent and share my personal stories (hello, is anyone out there?). It allowed me to express myself in a way I've never done before and it gave me something to do because I went from having worked as a professional for 15 years to doing absolutely nothing. Besides redecorate my new home/husbands former bachelor pad.
I write about everything - business, marketing, motherhood, food, friendships, hot topics, travel - you name it. Anything that I'm passionate about or anything that either directly affects me or things I've experienced in life, I'll write about it.
So here we are. I'm in some way shape or form, blending my personal life and career because really, they influence one other. Plus, if Google my name, I can't really hide anyway. It's out there for everyone to see. It's the cross I bear I guess
In a nutshell, I wanted to create a similar platform for my career (the one I'm trying to resuscitate), sort of like a LinkedIn on steroids because it gives me more control of what I want to share about my professional life, the work I've done and since I'm now in the throws of yet another transition, a place where potential employers can go and find out everything they need to about the work I've done.
