Well, here it is. My Very Own Website.

Welcome to A. Musings! I'd like to present the little project I've been working on for several months now. As a professional writer and editor, I felt a need to have an electronic portfolio of sorts, a place where I could display my work all in one handy location.

Then, I started thinking about my blog, Bookish Bent. While I love reading, and writing about what I read, the blog was lacking for me in a couple of ways: 1) After having a baby, I don't read quite as much as I used to, so my posts on books were becoming further apart - and I felt guilt, people, guilt! 2) While I sometimes wrote about movies and sports on Bookish Bent, it always felt off subject (for good reason - it was a book blog!), so I thought I'd open up my blog a bit as a way to comment on my other interests, and 3) Becoming a mother has provided me with a larger group of people I want to connect and chat with about issues, so I wanted a place to discuss some of those parenting ideas.

The site is definitely still a work in progress as I slowly update things like the Blogroll and my Work page. But, with the help of a very generous, patient friend and web designer (shout out to Little Pepper Studio!), I'm getting there. (Feel free to let me know if you have trouble with its usage, even while we continue to work out the kinks.) I'd also like to thank my pal, Kirsten, for designing my lovely web banners - she rocked it!

So, I hope you like my site as much as I do. And please come check in (and follow on Twitter) every once and a while. I'd love to hear from you.
