As you might have guessed from my blog's title, I'm June. Pleased to meet you! Nope, I was not born in June. My mom just liked the name. In Latin it means "youthful."
Why June's Journal?
I have loved writing from an early age, and this is my personal space to do just that. I also love to share resources. So that is what this blog is all about. I'm also a Web Developer in my day job, so I also blog on website topics over at JDWeb Solutions.com, which is the web agency I own & operate with a small team.
So I'm Web Developer by day, Writer/Blogger by night, and a Mommy, Wife, and Child of the Most High 24-hours everyday! My family & faith are extremely important to me, and I also have a heart to help others by sharing resources. I share my mistakes too in hopes of helping others avoid the same mistakes I made.
Don't wish you knew way back then what you know now?
Knowing truly is half the battle, and we struggle and "perish for lack of knowledge" (Hosea 4:6).
I feel I am always learning. So much to learn! But I truly love learning as much as sharing info.
A Love of Writing
In Junior High School, I wrote short stories and novels that my classmates read on our hour-long bus ride to school in Germany. Yep, you guessed it, I was an Army brat. I'd write a new chapter each week and my "readers" were eager to read.
I won a couple North Carolina Writing Awards in high school, wrote a column for my church's youth group newsletter, wrote plays, and eventually was the Editor of my college newspaper.
I was raised to believe that I should not pursue writing as a career because it was not profitable. I have since forgiven my parents for that, especially after finding out that screenwriters can make millions! Ha. I'm content these days just to blog and I'm writing on my first book.
The trend today is to blog on a specific "niche." I'm a rebel because even though I consult others to do just that in many cases, I blog on rather eclectic mix of topics. I mostly write about my Natural Journey (hair, essential oils, health, food), Faith topics, and general Tech topics.
You will not agree with everything I post. Just chew the meat & spit out the bones as you should do with everything you read. We should all be Bereans and "study to show ourselves approved."
Thanks again for stopping by, and now you know all ABOUT June's Journal!
