I think I’ve got this Figured Out


Hi Everybody,

I think I’ve finally got the whole http://www.thewritesteph.wordpress.com thing figured out. Actually, my nephew helped me understand why thewritesteph is still happily chugging along even though I’m not paying. WordPress.com is free…I was paying for the domain name http://www.thewritesteph.com. Ohhhhhhhhhh, now I get it!

Well, in that case, I think I’ll occasionally write on this site, but my main site will be http://www.sweetgumlife.com. It’s self-hosted and therefore has more bells and whistles. But sometimes I just like the simplicity of this free site, right here.

I am, however, going to direct you to today’s post. I wrote the first part of a suspense story right here.

Hope you’ll drop by and tell me what you think. No, really…I could use some constructive feedback.

Thanks, and hugs,





www.SweetgumLife.com February Blog Launch Extravaganza!

Dear Readers,

I proudly present our www.SweetgumLife.com February Blog Launch Extravaganza!

Every business day (Monday-Friday), you will have a chance to win wonderful prizes from some pretty amazing people!

Here’s how to win today’s $25 Fandango gift certificate that I purchased to launch www.SweetgumLife.com!

Please visit www.SweetgumLife.com, my new web site, to be a part of the contest.

I’ve not only got a new name and site, but now I also have the same name on Instagram and Facebook!

After several years of writing for www.thewritesteph.com, I’m going “self-hosted,” so I’ll only have theWriteSteph up for just a few more days. 🙂 Kinda sad, but upward and onward!
