Who are you?

I’m Shayla, the author of this blog (obviously). I’m in my mid-twenties, married, a mom, and happy. I work at a small newspaper, live in a ratty old work-in-progress house, and spend my spare time taking pictures, writing, cooking, and generally adventuring.

Where do you live?

I live in Northwestern Ontario — you’ll find me about mid-way between Thunder Bay and Winnipeg. It’s a small town with a definite small-town feel, but we travel to the city often enough that I don’t go completely crazy.

Why do you blog?

I started blogging back in Grade 9, as sort of an easier way to keep a diary. Since then I’ve blogged for many reasons. By keeping Northern Exposure, I’m trying to have a written recollection of my thoughts, feelings, and adventures over the years. I have a terrible memory and this helps!

I also spend a lot of time writing for work, so it’s nice to have a non-work outlet to keep my skills sharp.

How often do you blog?

I try to post Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Sometimes I take on challenges in which I try to post every day for a time period.

Are you associated with any other blogs?

Yes! I blogged over on Weddingbee as Mrs. Dragon.

Can I ask another question?

Yes. Email me at the address listed on the sidebar!
