My blogging career began in late 1999 when I started blogging on Dead Journal and Live Journal. I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread and blogged there for several years.

When my now husband and I decided to get married, I started a wedding site on Bravenet where I would blog about the wedding planning process and provide info for our guests. After the wedding, that site morphed into our family site for a few years.

As with other bloggers during that time, I jumped on the “get your own domain and use wordpress” bandwagon and purchased my first domain ( in mid 2003 and blogged on a subdomain their under KissAss. Since then I have had several different domains trying to find one that fit me. I thought I had found “the one” with blogging on it from 2008 until 2014, but it just didn’t feel right. So I purchased in late 2013 so I could have a blog that is more personal.
