Meg Lemke is awesome

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of visiting with Meg Lemke on the telephone.  She was so gracious and accommodating during our interview.  For those who don’t know her, she is the editor-in-chief of Mutha Magazine, guest editor of The Illustrated PEN , chair of the comics and graphic novels panel at the Brooklyn Book Festival, and a freelance editor and writer.  She is also married and has one daughter.  You can read my previous post here.

The thing about Meg that I got from our short conversation is that she is so positive and has this incredible energy.  She doesn’t have this “woe is me” attitude that some of us busy mothers have.  BUT, she doesn’t play it off as “holier than thou” either.  She loves her job(s) and loves her family, and with a little creativity, she makes enough time for both.  I don’t want to speak for her, but I got the sense that she leads a very fulfilled, satisfied life–home life, work life, creative life.

We talked about so many great things yesterday, and I can’t wait to share more with you.  In the meantime, check out the links above and follow Meg on Twitter @meglemke.

It’s been quiet around here…

I’m sorry it’s been a little quiet here on the blog.  I’ve been reading an amazing book, Blogging for Writers by Robin Houghton, so I’ve been working behind the scenes to make the blog even better.  The world of blogging is completely new to me, and this book has been perfect for me.  It’s geared toward writers, but I think anyone interested in starting a blog could benefit from reading it.

I’ve got some exciting interviews coming up.  I’ll be visiting with Meg Lemke, editor-in-chief of Mutha Magazine soon.  She also programs the comics and graphic novels at the Brooklyn Book Festival, which is this weekend!  Oh, how I wish I could be there!

I’ll also be talking with Lauren Lim of Photography Concentrate.  You can see my previous post about her here.  She has been such a pleasure to visit with so far; I can’t wait to share a little bit of her interview with you.

I’ll also be talking with designer Erin Flett.  She was featured in the September 2016 issue of Better Homes and Gardens. She was featured as one of the Style Makers of 2016!  I absolutely love her style, and I can’t wait to get to know her better.

So, stay tuned!  Many great things to come… I’m learning lots about blogging and the blog is getting better everyday, and I’ve got some really great interviews coming up that I am so excited about.  Can’t wait to share them with you!
