Name: Jennifer K. Oliver
Writer & Web Designer
Hello, and welcome! Most of my blog posts are about writing, reading, editing, publishing, and rejection, with a little web design and a smattering of every day life thrown into the mix.
You can comment using OpenID, Facebook, or Twitter. If you're looking for something specific, check out the tags.
On the subject of friending: go for it, you don't have to ask first.
