About Me/FAQ

Hello! I'm Lecia Phinney. This space contains my journaling about parenting, marriage, food, and life in general. Thanks for taking the time out of your day to stop by.

I grew up in Alaska. I went to college in New York City and attended graduate school in Seattle, and Seattle is now my home. I live with my husband and two boys by the ocean. I like cooking and eating, and sharing a table with family and friends. My favorite food is peanut butter.

I'm new to blogging/I'm thinking of starting a blog. How can I get started?

Blog about what you love. If you do, whatever it is, that passion will shine through. You will enjoy doing it, and others will respond to it.

This is a great post that just about covers it all. It is entitled food blogging, but is applicable to blogging in general.
