GET BLOGGING! I'd love to read yours! Miss you!
Since finding that simple message in her inbox in June, 2005, Jenny Eckton has treasured the experiences brought into her life through blogging.
Jenny Eckton grew up in a tiny town in the Southwestern corner of New York. At age 19, after a short stint in the Chicago suburbs, she decided to move to Provo, Utah, with a friend to create a band, in which she played bass guitar and sang. Living in Provo was supposed to have been a temporary stop in her journey through life, but she finds herself still living there and liking it, now a wife of over twelve years, and a mother to six children (5 alive, 1 in Heaven). Getting to stay home with her kids is what she’s always wanted to do, and that’s what she’s doing.
In the midst of changing diapers and all that goes along with that scene (favorite: laundry; least favorite: floors), Jenny still makes time for her own interests which, surprisingly to no one more than herself, include preparing for and participating in triathlons. She enjoys music – singing, playing, dancing, listening, you name it, and is eager to have any opportunity to pick up her guitar. Jenny enjoys traveling (doesn’t everybody?), hiking, comedy, TV (DVR makes her a better mom), writing, letterpress, laughing, farmers markets, Trader Joes, IKEA, radio, concerts, quilts, planning her dream house, red, and getting mail. She comments around town as ~j., her twitter handle is @formerlyphread, and her blog is formerlyphread.com.
Jenny blogs to write, to connect, to laugh, and to exchange and express ideas and ever-evolving opinions. She has written guest posts on Segullah and Light Refreshments Served, and was featured as a Monday’s Maven on inevergrewup.net. Most prized have been the friendships which have been created through the blogging process.
