Here’s my Brief Blogger’s Bio!
Back before the year 2000, my husband started talking to me about this guy named Drudge. I hate to admit it, but I listened with one ear because I didn’t understand why he was so enthused about him. Then came Election 2000. I became glued to the computer after I discovered the internet had the most recent information about what was happening in that scrambling aftermath. We were living in New Hampshire at the time, but because I’m a native Floridian and a relative was a county elections supervisor in the state (not one of the counties with recount problems!), I wanted to keep up with the latest news. So I began my journey into the world of ConservativeCyberPolitics.
I found Scott Ott’s ScrappleFace blog and started reading my way through his blogroll. In summer of 2004 I took the plunge and began commenting on a political blog. In 2006 I started writing posts for the first of several group blogs that I’ve joined. In 2010 I began my first personal blog to encourage Christian women.
Now I’m branching into blogging on politics with a focus on home and family. Those happen to be two of the hottest political buttons today, and since I’m a wife and mom I do have some definite thoughts on those issues. I have a degree in math education, and I’ve enjoyed dabbling in history. You bring to writing who you are, and I can contribute insight as a Christian woman who has reared children and taught them at home, along with my interests and analysis honed by my mathematics training in proofs and logic. That’s why you’ll find links in the sidebar not only to other blogs, but to articles on reason and propaganda and to resources that include historical documents and current writings on our nation and issues of the day.
Further into my past, you might be interested to know that I was in college during the late 60’s and early 70’s during that time of questioning existence and meaning as war protests and radicals overran campuses. The Left is not a stranger to me—the generation I took classes with and knew then, now walks the halls of power. I became a Christian during those years, and so I encountered not only their politics, but their scorn and disbelief of my faith.
I watched Watergate unfold on television, survived the Carter years, and voted for Reagan. While I may not immediately remember all the details, that means I can at least usually recognize when a talking head is trying to put a revisionist spin on the past!
My husband enjoys reading and commenting on financial sites, although he still checks in with Drudge! He’ll be helping me with comment moderation. Our children are now young adults; our daughter is a freelance artist and aspiring writer, and our son is a computer science major who is also in R.O.T.C.
Thanks for joining me here. I hope you take away some thoughts, information and encouragement!
