A paid writer

Back in January of this year, I became a paid writer for the Patch. is an online newsletter/local newspaper of sorts that is spreading like wildfire throughout the country. A friend of mine was working on a fundraiser, and the editor. Abigail (who is now my editor - I Love saying that!) for Patch was covering the fundraising event. Editor Abby was looking for local moms to be on the mom's council - we would be given a question every week about being a mom and it is now a weekly article.

My thoughtful friend, Dee, had remembered I am a writer, and when Abby mentioned they are looking for writers for Patch, she informed me of this opportunity. That was the beginning of my writing for profit. My weekly article is called Patch Picks. I have a different topic every week. My most recent article was on local parks for families to visit. Much like my recipe for french toast, I spice it up to make things more interesting. By using my own flair, sense of humor mixed with good advice to go with my selections, I feel proud of every article I do. I am grateful for!
