About Us

This blog actually began sometime back in 1985. Madonna didn’t yet need Botox, Michael Jackson was only on his second nose, and ARPANET–the daddy of the internet–was just coming into use. And two little girls from opposite sides of the same town met when they were placed in the same program together, thus sparking a lifelong friendship resulting in–ta da!–this blog.

Unbelievably, this is the only picture of the two of us together that I could find! Faces hidden to protect the innocent.

Born a week apart, we are both classic Virgos–perfectionists, analytical, organized, and definitely not risk-takers. We also have a problem with decision-making, which is why it took us six months to come up with a name for this blog, but we do love our lists. We also share a love of writing and the flaw of putting our own needs behind everyone else’s. We conceived of this blog as a way to channel our creativity, give us “deadlines” so we couldn’t put our needs/desires on the back burner, and provide a platform to share our thoughts and spark discussion.

Also, it just seemed like fun.

Here’s a little more about each of us (in case you really, really want to know):

Meet Katie

Co-Queen Katie TestaDaydreamer and procrastinator extraordinaire, Katie is also a freelance writer. She’s married to her high school prom date and they have a pretty cool kid. After nearly ten years of living in the South, they’re back in their home state of Connecticut. Katie has a varied background that includes law and social work, and she has always found a way to incorporate her love of writing into her work. Currently, she contributes articles to various online publications, including local news sites and small business blogs. You can check out examples of unique content for sale on GhostBloggers and in her profile on Constant Content.

Meet Lynn

Co-Queen Lynn T.Lynn is a mom of four and the wife to a military man. Her life path has taken her from pulled together career woman to scatterbrained domestic engineer–and she doesn’t want it any other way! When she’s not battling grass stains and crusty sippy cups, Lynn is a freelance writer whose anecdotes have been published in Fit Pregnancy and Catholic Digest. She has blogged for various sites, from dieting to parenting to entrepreneurship. She also has an essay published in an anthology, “Remembering Our Angels”, and writes an occasional column for the local paper. She writes from Frederick, MD–when her kids allow her.
