Between The Lines; it’s My Turn…

“When I started blogging five-years-ago, one of the first blogs I came across was Katherine’s Corner. We had more than a few things in common and I knew I liked her. When she put the word out that she wanted to do a series on mid-life women bloggers of course I wanted to be part of the fun!”

The series is called between the lines.


Please stop over and read about the featured bloggers…

I started blogging while I was working on the second draft of my first book. Back then I posted excerpts from Bristol boyz Stomp and shared the news of my youngest two granddaughter’s births. I cannot believe they will be 6 & 7 the end of this month.

I’ve had technical difficulties along the way but I was determined to ‘get it.’

While writing the last draft of my second book, The Stranger In My Recliner it was clear to me that I wanted to write full-time. I needed to earn a living so I turned to something I enjoyed, my blog. I started writing content for brands, business blogs, ghostwriting and studied to be a writer/blogger/marketing coach & consultant, a job I LOVE!

What I love most about blogging is the friendships. Mid-life woman are fabulous! I have met quite a few and look forward to meeting many more.

Once we drop the competition and start connecting with one another, gain confidence and share what we’ve learned with each other, amazing things start to happen!

I hope you will visit some of the other women who are featured. You never know who you might meet.

Thank you so much Katie, for featuring me today and for all you do!

Would you like to win a copy of The Stranger In My Recliner?  Leave a comment here and on Katie’s post and share away. I will choose a winner on Sunday.

  • Hello Doreen, It is such a pleasure to meet another “Between the Lines” blogger. Congratulations on your writing accomplishments! I loved your comments about dropping the competition and sharing with one another. So true! I have been blogging for just over a year and find it difficult to be truly consistent with my posting. Hoping to get it together more and begin to monetize! Teresa

  • Hi Doreen,
    I love the picture of all the ladies at the table. You are right, once we let the competition BS go- we can be a great support to one another. Congrats on publishing two books! I’ve only been blogging for 6 months and post only once a week. I’m lost when it comes to the techy stuff and have yet to monetize, but I have faith it will come some day. Nice to meet you in this series.

  • Hi Doreen—It was fun to read your interview for the series.
    As a fashion blogger, I definitely think you ought to wear your pearls with a tee—it shows my favorite style of dressing which is dichotomy (and it breaks all the rules we learned as youngsters!!)
