You might be wondering what I’m about.
Well, I am happiest when I am writing. I blog to help people show up online in real and engaging ways.I like to show my readers how to make their blogs feel better. Be liked more. Be read more. And how they can use social media to get their brand out there in the world.
I write to release my true stories in the hope that they will help my readers learn how to survive life and live to tell about it.
You can stop reading now if you want. Really, you can. But in case you are curious:
7 things you’d probably rather not know about me but I’m going to tell you anyway
1. I can speak four languages.
I know French, English, Spanish and Swahili. (Okay, I can only say ‘Four knives will be sufficient’ in Swahili, but you never know when that will come in handy.)
2. I have written three middle grade children’s novels.
They are sitting forlornly on the shelf, still in rough draft stage. Someday I will finish them.
3. I was attacked once by a mob of angry mosquitoes in Senegal, West Africa.
After I had fallen asleep, the college intern who was joining our team for the summer had come into the hotel room we were sharing and opened the window because she was ‘too hot!’ I woke up looking like Elephant Woman.
4. I can sing some very strange songs.
Because I used to teach first graders, I can still sing ‘I’m a Little Pile of Tin, No One Knows What Shape I’m In’ all the way through, complete with the hand motions and honking sound effects. Since leaving teaching, I have only sung it once in public. It was in a place called the Silver Dollar Bar somewhere in Montana.
5. When I was in third grade, I wanted to be an interpreter at the United Nations.
Different goal. Strange child. I got laughed at a lot.
6. I’m a reader, a feeder and a collector.
In my spare time, I like reading 19th century novels (Have you read Les Misérables lately? It’s fun!), preparing gourmet meals for stray cats and collecting those little snow globe thingies.
7. When I get bored, I like to make things up.
I love turning the sound off old movies and voicing new lines of dialogue for the characters. Old 40s movies in black and white work the best. All that drama! Seems like they were always arguing about something.
Oh, and I’d love to connect with you on Twitter. My Twitter name is JudyLeeDunn. We can talk about stuff over there, too!
Or email me anytime. I’d love to hear to hear from you.
