One of the best compliments I’ve ever received when it comes to my writing is when someone will say, “me too.”  That happens to me, too. I’ve felt like that, too. I’m so glad I’m not alone here. Building community, making connections and reaching people where they are – those are the main reasons I put myself on display in this crazy land of the internet.

Sometimes the best place for that is here, and sometimes the best place to reach people is somewhere else.

This is where you can find some of the recent articles I have written for other sites and publications. Sometimes content originally published on my blog is accepted, and other times they are pieces that I wrote specifically for that audience.
