Join me on Facebook

I finally took the plunge and created a separate Facebook page for Family Chatter. I had previously been sharing my posts to my personal page but as this blog grows I figured I would like to have a dedicated space for readers to interact with me outside of my personal page.

If you’re interested check it out and like my page. You can look forward to seeing teasers of blog posts in your news feeds as well as shared posts from other bloggers and news sources that I have found interesting.

I’d love to connect with you. As time passes and readership grows I’m sure I’ll separate my other social media accounts, but until then you can still find me on Instagram and pinterest under my personal accounts.

With just a month to go, summer’s end is nigh

It is hard to believe it is the last week of July already. When I moved to Sarnia at the end of May, I thought that this summer might crawl by and that I would have loads of time to get all kinds of things accomplished.

But now that I am in the height of applying for full-time jobs, in the blissful throws of a summer romance, and trying to figure out how far I want to move away from my family come September, I am shocked at how quickly my summer is disappearing.

In the last week while working in Chatham, I have been able to utilize some of my web knowledge and get a blog and Facebook page for CTW off the ground. This has been one of the most exciting things I have done this summer at work. The experience has definitely made me realize that online is where I want to be. There is just so much more to think about, so much more to update and so much more I can do.

I applied to a newspaper in Red Deer, Alta. last night and received a follow up e-mail about half an hour ago. I thought I might feel panicky about actually hearing back from a publication so far away, but I think my experience in Sarnia has taught me that I can go anywhere and I will be okay. Tonight I will prepare an application for a paper in Haliburton and the paper here in Chatham. I hope to hear from the Toronto Star regarding a year-long internship position this week.

With just a month left in southwestern Ontario, I feel confident that my future holds bright prospects, that in time, I will accomplish great things through writing. God has given me this gift and I know I will be able to use it for his glory – even if that does mean I’ll be moving to the other side of the country.
