At the beginning of the Iraq war, I found the news, through traditional media, was not enough. I began to search the internet for more information and discovered blogs for the first time. Through following links, I found Where is Raed?, written by an Iraqi. I didn't agree with everything he had to say, but it was compelling to glimpse inside Iraq through the eyes of an Iraqi.
Following links led me to mlitary blogs, and before I knew it, a whole new world had opened up to me.
I was hooked.
I started my original blog, Brainstorming, on September 7, 2003, under the nickname DC.
One problem. I'm a married woman, with two kids, and we own a business. All these things conspired to limit the time I could spend plotting to take over the world through my blog. What's a potential female dictator to do?
In order to see my dreams of world dominance blossom into reality, I needed allies. M.A.W.B. Squad was the perfect answer, a group of female authors sharing the same thirst for blogging power. I couldn't ask for a finer group of co-conspirators.
In my edicts, you may encounter the PiC. It stands for Partner in Crime, the blog name I've given my husband. Since we have one daughter, (high school age), we call her The Girl. Her brother, (middle school age), is obviously The Boy, (though I'm considering Cammo Boy to reflect his wardrobe choices.)
Do our plans alarm you? Sit back. Relax. Take comfort in the fact that we've got things under control. Your Mom always did, right?
