About Me and Why I Blog

This page is about me. Hi, my name is Marsha Ingrao. I love blogging. It changed my life. I live in Central California, Tulare County, in the foothill community of Elderwood, north of Woodlake and east of Visalia.

In the past year, I have focused more on writing, blogging, and photography for newbies and non-professional bloggers. I write about those topics on this blog, Always Write.
about me

This is not Vince, by the way.

I WRITE TO AND FOR YOU.

I can’t stop teaching. I love to learn and try new things, and I want to share with others who get pleasure from those same things. Let me help you with (or laugh at my) blogging problems, pains in photography, time management panic attacks, and technology bloopers.
Everyone needs to know that someone follows what you do in life.  That is what motivates me to blog.  I enjoy life, and the connections I make in the blogosphere. I love your comments. I want to use my skills as a teacher, communicator, and social butterfly to help you succeed.
Having this blog frees my personal blog, Marsha Ingrao  TC History Gal for more personal topics, photo challenges, service and professional organization activities and how-tos, and trips.
My personal blog highlights my learning journey into blogging, writing, photography, as well as my life as a retired educator, activist in professional and service organizations, travel, and my personal life with my husband, Vince.

RELATIONSHIPS ARE IMPORTANT TO ME

Connect with me and I’ll send you my free newsletter which includes tips like time management, marketing strategies, content writing, building relationships, and solving technology problems. Most important, I’ll visit your blog and leave comments in hopes that you will do the same for me. Like Ralph used to say on his blog, “Your comments are the best part.”

First and foremost I’m a teacher.

JUST SO YOU KNOW

I’ve published two books.  
Fiction is still on my bucket list. I have written, but not published two NaNoWriMo novels:
  • Girls on Fire, a fiction novel about three women in their 50s and 60s who are looking for new love and a change in life.
  • Winning Jenny’s Smile, a middle school fiction about Jenny’s first months in a new school.
  • They’re still not great, and I go back and rework them as I learn new writing skills.
