Welcome HubPages readers!  So glad you took the time to stop by and check out my posts.

Please take a moment and sign up to follow me. You won't be disappointed.  I would like to think of myself as an accomplished freelance writer and I hope you enjoy reading my stuff as much as I enjoy writing it. 

Just a little about me. I love people, especially my family. I am a wife, mother and grand and GREAT-grandmother (yes, really! I mean it.) My work experience has been as a high school guidance counselor, assistant marketing director and school administrator in various roles. In  my early years I worked for a company that provides sound, lights and special effects for the entertainment industry! (I know what a "lighting truss" is, do you? :) 

My blog is Ducks ‘n a Row, dedicated to helping women get their lives in order, laughing as we go.  Our motto is “The beauty of an organized life"

Now, back to HubPages, which I love! Part of the fun of writing for Hub Pages is the community of friends that you can meet.  Feedback through fan mail and comments is so encouraging .Forums bring great help and support from fellow hubbers.  And, you can even make money!  

One thing you can do for all of the Hubbers whose work you like is to promote our hubs for us and, if you become a Hubber, we will do it for you. Tweet them, Like them, Stumble them, Share them, Vote them up, useful, beautiful or whatever.  Let people know!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
