I have always wanted to be a storyteller. Like most writers, I am an introvert with an ongoing storyline in my head about people, dreams, memories, make-belief, etc. Over the years, my career has forced me to pretend to be an extrovert. It has also forced me to come out of my shell and reveal my personality that only shows up in safe spaces. After all, you cannot be an effective high school teacher without being authentically yourself. Fellow teachers, you understand.

I started blogging in my early twenties. The content stemmed along the lines of the struggles of being single and Christian, searching for purpose/identity, seeking dreams/aspirations, and trying not to become someone’s baby mama. 

Marriage and motherhood have consumed my thirties thus far. We adopted (Stay tuned for our adoption story). We struggled with getting pregnant, went through tons of fertility treatments, and experienced numerous losses. Finally, I was able to carry a baby full term. 

I have quite a story when it comes to my journey of motherhood and just navigating this thing called life. I am eager to be an open book in hopes of encouraging someone else. Oh, and all while continuing to write Fiction in between.

  1. Hello. I am so glad you came by my blog today. I just finished reading your piece on Black American vs. African American and it was great. I look forward to reading more of your wonderful words!

  2. Thanks for the conversation and for following my blog, But, as to the latter, you probably don’t really want to do that. One, I’m too the right of most Conservatives; two, many of posts will come across as racist to you because I don’t like much of what I see or hear of modern Black culture and, while I strive to polite on others’ blogs, I’m fairly pitiless and blunt on my own.

    It’s, of course, up to you though. I like dissenting opinions and dislike my blog turning into an echo chamber.

    1. LOL! Thank you for the disclaimer. I will take my chances. Now, I’m curious to read your stuff. If it becomes too much I can always unfollow. Haha! But, hey it could make for interesting debate.

      1. It might at that…if you can get past the initial response. To help with that – or to drive you off before we utterly hate each other – here’s one of my posts that touches upon my fundamental views on “race” in America: http://blog.jonolan.net/politics/dont-discuss-race/

        Conversely, however, here’s another post that might hit home with you: http://blog.jonolan.net/society/black-beauty/ Warning though, it’s filled with scantily clad women…

  3. Hi Ms. Ebby! Thank you for following my blog. I absolutely agree with you, “the first step to becoming a writer is acknowledging you are one”. I’m still struggling “being a writer” myself.haha.

    1. Hello! It is definitely a struggle. Even after writing two books I was still hesitant to call myself a writer. Crazy, huh? Thank you for your kind words. You have a great blog too! You’re a great writer too. I look forward to following you and connecting. God bless you!
