It’s weird to talk about yourself, isn’t it? Especially when you’re not actually having a conversation with anyone, you’re just typing, trying to keep in mind who might visit your ‘about me’ page and what exactly you’d want them to know about you.
I guess I’ll start with this: I’m a writer! HEYYY-OHHH! No clickbait ‘surprising facts about Gina’ headline needed here!
Truth is, I’ve been writing since I was a kid. I wrote a story once in the third grade that included the line, “and then I ate my cereal. It was stale…I think.” Which prompted my teacher to comment, “Wonderful description!” This kind of unfounded ego-massage prompted me to decide I was the next Judy Blume, and I submitted my idea for a new Benjamin Rush Elementary school song, and lo and behold, it became the damn school song. I’ll sing it for you if you ask nicely.
As an adult, I spent 8 years as an editor at MSN.com, and then I started blogging as The Dynamom (see my post on why I recently gave up my moniker). I had a number of articles go viral on syndicates like Scary Mommy and HuffPo, and then my bylines appeared on sites including The Washington Post, Redbook, POPSUGAR, Woman’s Day, SheKnows, Buzzfeed, and more, and I decided…hey…I should probably have a blog of my own.
And now you’re here, and I’m really grateful.
Outside of THAT, I’m a mom of two wonderful human beings, my insanely funny and bright daughter Holly is 23 and doing incredible things, and my son Jax is 11 and just about the most kind, clever kid you’ll ever meet. I have two dogs (Ruffell Wilson and Sunday, yep, both on Instagram because I’m a big nerd), and we live in a Seattle suburb.
As of this writing I’m single, but obviously not for long, because I made a Relationship Vision Board with the words ‘handsome, hilarious, thoughtful, brilliant, and confident’ on it, so clearly MAH’ STATUS ‘BOUT TA CHANGE.
And, as always, you can find me at Target.
