TMC welcomes Katie, author of the blog Sluiter Nation. She is without a doubt one of those supportive bloggers who has been with me from the launch of TMC and I’m honored to feature her today! She’s also a fun tweep to get to know on Twitter, so be sure to connect with her and check her out! Here is how she describes her blog in her own words:
“Sluiter Nation started four years ago as a little blog that I referred to as our “family website.” I had no idea that there was such a thing as a blogging community. I just knew that Blogger let you set up your own page where you could write and upload pictures, and I thought that seemed like a pretty good idea. We had lost my husband’s dad and I had suffered a miscarriage and we had gone on trips in our first two years of marriage, so we thought we needed some way to keep everyone updated with things all at once.
The first three years I just updated maybe once or twice a week with my mom and a handful of friends reading. Then I reconnected with a friend from high school who knows a thing or two about blogging and I joined Twitter. The next thing I knew I was a blogger. Not just someone with a blog.
Four years after sitting down and signing up with Blogger, I have moved to WordPress with my own domain, I started a book review blog and a memoir/creative writing blogging space, and I joined the lovely leadership team at The Red Dress Club.
Before, my blog was for family updates. Now my blog is a safe harbor for my words. It’s where I tell my stories just hoping to find my place in this crazy world. It’s where I find other people who get me…who have been through what I have been through…who can relate.
It’s where I find you.
And it’s where we can laugh and cry and then laugh some more.
It’s Sluiter Nation.
It’s my home.”
