We’ve asked a few bloggers from our 2010 list to impart some quick sparks of knowledge with the theme What I Know Now Is This, in a fun, informal environment.
Harriet Fancott is a communications specialist, writer, arts enthusiast and nature lover. She works at Limelite PR, is a regular contributor to Focus On Adoption Magazine and was recently published in Today’s Parent. She’s been blogging and tweeting for almost three years and values the connections she’s made online and in real life. On her blog See Theo Run, she explores the intricacies of open adoption and life as a mixed-race family. She also posts light-hearted musings and photos of her rambunctious (almost) three-year-old son, who she finds relentlessly hilarious.
Tracey Rossignol is a former 1980s fashionista trying to re-discover her personal style in her 40s. Thankfully the big hair, matching scrunchy socks and hip belts are gone. But where do we go from here? Tracey’s personal style blog Fashion Forward 40 documents her mis-adventures in fashion after 40. She hopes one day she will have the answer on how to balance her love of fashion with motherhood, real life, respect for the environment and gravity. Her daytime alter ego is a 20-year veteran of the marketing and communications industry.
Amber Strocel is a writer, dreamer and social media evangelist. She lives in Coquitlam with her husband and two children. In her extremely rare and precious free time she grows things, attempts handcrafts and eats rather a lot of chocolate. She chronicles her life on her blog at Strocel.com, which she has been writing since May 2003. Through blogging, she found inspiration and support, leading her to create an online tools for moms at Crafting my Life. She’s also proud to be the Content Manager for VancouverMom.ca, helping connect local moms with this fabulous city.
