The Snob Profiled on SheThrives Network

Recently I gave an interview to SheThrives, a new web site for women, about my life as a writer and blogger. Here's a snippet: 

... the blog really resonated with people. They really enjoyed the content and it validated me because I felt, when I was in journalism, it was really hard for me to breakout. I worked for a lot of small town newspapers and I lived in small markets. And, it’s really hard to get the attention of major magazines and publications when you go to a no name university and you work in Bakersfield. So, the internet was really a way to level the playing ground for me to show that I did have the type of skills that could resonate with a larger audience. That could transfer on a larger scale nationally and without the internet, I don’t think I would be able to do that. I think I’d be still be stuck. Small towns, I probably wouldn’t even be in journalism anymore. I don’t know what I’d be doing if it weren’t for the website.

You can check out all three parts of the interview here. (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3)
