Let's try this again!
Greetings from Marysville, Washington.
I've been blogging since 2009 and today I write three blogs...
Keep the Tail Wagging | http://www.keepthetailwagging.com
Adventures in Blogging | http://www.adventuresinblogging.net
Through the Lens of Kimberly Gauthier | http://www.kimberlygauthier.com
I'm also a featured blogger on Dog Culture dot net and Girl Power Hour as The Fur Mom (http://girlpowerhour.com/category/guest-bloggers/the-fur-mom/)
I use my blogs to connect with people, build my Life's Abundance premium pet food business, and to have fun. I love photography, our dogs, and blogging. I didn't start this to be a professional, but that's the path that I found myself on and I appreciate the challenges.
What I find most interesting about social networking is that people aren't always welcoming at first, but when you get you gain a presence, people start to listen. I'm going to use my growing presence to promote dog rescue and responsible breeding.
On a personal note. I'm an accountant by day and take the train from Seattle to Marysville each evening. We live in 5 acres next door to cows, horses, goats, ducks, chickens, and dogs dogs dogs. I grew up in NE Portland and never thought I would give up living near a big city, but I love the space, the quite, and when I look up all I see is stars (when it's not raining).
I'm excited to connect here, because I have one black friend. Really! I'm starting to get more and more black friends online, which I appreciate, because there's nothing like connecting with people who get me on a level that some of my friends and part of my family (white) cannot. I look forward to meeting with you, sharing with you, and growing because of you.
I was recently interviewed and received a lot of great feedback from members of this site and from social networking in general: http://www.adventuresinblogging.net/2012/04/02/sharing-easy-blogging-tips-an-interview-with-black-bloggers-connect/
