Blogging 101 – Day 1

Day One: Introduce Yourself to the World

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click “New Post,” and tell us why you’re here.

Today’s assignment: write and publish a “who I am and why I’m here” post on your blog.

Tessa was born in the mid 50’s. Tessa’s real name is Teresa E. Smeigh (Dean). Tessa is the eldest of 3 children. She has a younger brother and sister, plus 3 children and 4 grandchildren.

Why did I start this blog. To write! That was always my goal in life was to write stories and poems and maybe even a book, who knows?

This is the first blog and I now have a second blog that contains stories and poems that are posted here, but also is dedicated to being an advocate for invisible illnesses. We need someone to stand up for us and remove the stigma that so affects our lives. I post a lot of non-fiction stories about my life. It hasn’t been an easy one, but we still have a lot to be thankful for.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    Tessa, I am so glad I found your primary blog. I feel it would be incomplete otherwise…
