My name is Margaret. I am a writer, and a blogger, and a woman. Just Margaret is my personal blog. This means I write about whatever strikes my fancy on any given day. Often it’s family, or the day-to-day. I don’t generally write about writing per se. My projects are currently each in various stages of creation, and as such are not ready for prime time, if you know what I mean.
So here on the blog, I am Just Margaret. Some of the more common things I blog about include: (This is under construction. Currently these links bring you to my old blog, but I hope to have them updated to reflect their new home very soon!)
Education. Specifically, my kids’ education. I’m the mom of two highly intelligent creatures who give the public school here in Podunk a run for their money.
Family and Parenting. I’ve got those great kiddos mentioned above, two more great stepkids, a husband, siblings, in-laws…it goes on. I generally keep my stories about my own perspective, though.
Media and Feminism. I am a feminist, and I am not a huge fan of Mainstream Media, though I am a consumer of it. Sometimes I write about it.
Books and Reading. We’re a big reading family, and without books, well, I’d be lost. I read all kinds of stuff, and am pleased to be among BlogHer’s cast of Book Reviewers.
Me. Come on, I blog–isn’t it all about me? Personal victories, life’s challenges, housekeeping (or lack thereof), random thoughts, humorous moments–everything’s fair game.
