Five years ago, I attended my first Arkansas Women Bloggers event at the Arlington Hotel in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Here’s a recap of all the activities I participated in during three fun days in the Spa City
One of my fellow bloggers I met at this event, Jamie Smith from Northwest Arkansas, is a Writer, Consultant and Speaker. She runs her own business, https://jamiesnotebook.com/ and also writes her personal blog, https://sunflowersandthorns.com/.
Jamie has a category of Chronic Illness/Disability on her blog and often invites Guest Writers to tell their own experiences of living with a chronic illness. She asked me to be a Guest Writer in her Chronic Illness Series and the following entry was published on January 31, 2016.
Update – September 2020
So much as happened in the last few years. I just started a new job as a Library Assistant in the Editorial Department at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette! I really like it because I proof the online editions of the newspaper, so I get to use my journalism background along with my love of the news.
My oldest daughter, Lauren, continues to work remotely for the University of Chicago while my youngest daughter, Sara, just celebrated her first year as a News Reporter for a TV station.
