The Blogger in Me
I was an avid blogger from 2003 until 2017. I wrote about my travels, art, writing, music, activism, and eventually, parenting. Specifically, parenting a child with a disability; and eventually, parenting two kids, one disabled and one able-bodied.
As my children grew older, more independent and in control of what was shared about them online, I wrote less and less about them and eventually stopped posting all together.
The blog had started as a way to express myself creatively and to document my travels while teaching “overseas.” When my son was born, it became a way to connect with family and friends all over the world, and eventually to a community of families similar to ours.
With the arrival of social media, blogging became less about connecting with others and more about writing. And I wanted to write elsewhere.
So, I’ve retired my blog, Free As Trees.
