Em Van Moore’s First Post on Her Shiny New Website! OR:

How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Blog

Isn’t this pretty? I was told I needed images and I didn’t put any makeup on today so… here’s a pretty person who isn’t me!

Welcome! Bienvenue! Bienvenidas!

That’s it. That’s all the French and Spanish I know, despite taking a year of each in high school.

Oh, I can also ask to go to the bathroom (in French), ask how your day is (in Spanish), answer how my day is (in French), and then tell you that I don’t speak Spanish (in Spanish). So, I’m not exactly what anyone would consider fluent. Im great at speakings and writings in the Englishes though. Unlike Hillaria Baldwin, I know the word for “cucumber” too! (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out this article.)

At this point you might be asking yourself “what is the point of this blog post??” And don’t worry, I’m right there with you. But I assure you I have a purpose. 

The topic for this very first blog post is simply: 

“Hello, I’m Em, a writer and novelist who will be regurgitating words onto your screen on a semi-regular basis so please subscribe and follow me on my socials to keep in touch and be the first to know when I’ve posted new things!” 

(As you can see already, I am excellent at being concise). 

Writerly image: Check. Rainbows: Check. Bubbles: Check. Happy Emmy: Check.

What I lack in ability to write or speak in any other language, I make up for with my ability to utilize English to nth degree. Some of it makes sense. Some of it doesn’t. All of it will be at least mildly entertaining (if only to laugh at my love/hate relationship with the Oxford comma).

That means that there will be many more blog posts to come! 

While I am a writer, I won’t be writing about writing. There’s smarter people out there doing a much better job of blogging about writing, and I don’t add anything useful to the conversation. I belong to an amazing group called The Motley Writers Guild and that’s where you’ll find writerly posts written by me and others.

So on this website my blog posts will be just like me: eclectic and random, with a distinctly silly twist. All will be thoroughly researched with sources cited though, because I’m a Nurse first and a Writer second, and we nurses are an evidence based profession. Oh, I’m also a Mom, and a Wife, a BFF (shoutout to the amazing Leona Nicholson!), a Daughter, a Sister, an Auntie, a Homesteader, an Activist and an Olympic Hopeful (did you know that anyone can just say that? You don’t even need to play a sport!). I wear a lot of hats, and in this blog I intend to wear none of them because I actually do not like hats. I prefer wigs.

Enough about me (and my wigs). On to the information!

I just really like bubbles, okay?

As you can see, I’m a rather silly person who likes to write about a lot of different things. My list of disinterests is quite short, as a result. So, feel free to drop me a line and tell me what topics you’d especially like to see.

And don’t forget to follow me on my socials for the most up to date info!

This post needed at least one more bubble.

Stay tuned for my next blog:

“Of Course Electric Vehicles Work In Cold Climates, You Silly Goose!”

Expect to see it being posted in the next two to twenty weeks. And after that, who knows!? (I certainly don’t)

My opinions in this, my first ever blog post, are meant to be humorous. I do not intend any offense to anyone reading them, and I hope you understand that they’re meant to be jokey and silly. Please take what I say with a grain of salt. I assure you, my novels are usually much more serious than my online presence would lead you to believe.
