10 years ago, jill-writes.com was the platform that gave words to my thoughts. It was the place where I documented life in Dubai as an expat’s wife and mum to a baby girl. But over the years, laundry, kids, procrastination, life took over and I was doing nothing (for the site) except paying for domain and hosting. Overtime, the site was infected with virus and consequently died a bad death, taking away all my precious words and pictures.
When I wanted to re-start writing, there were many excuses that held me back – I needed tech help, my English is sometimes embarrassing, how much exposure should I allow for the kids, the laundry, what should I name the site, the struggle within on why would anybody bother to read stuff I write, the monkeys, etc.
And then she said it. “I want to support your writing. I will sort out all the technical stuff for you. What name do you want? What design? What font?” And in just a matter of days, THIS was set up. Laverne, you’re amazing, you know that?
So here I am – still tech challenged, English still embarrassing, still can’t decide on how much I’ll write about the kids, still don’t know who would bother to read stuff I write, but hey, I have a name alas. So, with this post, I present to you, jillogy.com.
