About Margy

Be warned – I’m an old broad, over 60. That blows my mind, unless you’ve already reached that mark. Go baby boomers!

So, what could you say about me? I’m an online blabbermouth, probably because I love to write. I also like to cook, grow vegetables and flowers and walk in pretty places. And you, curious reader, can follow along because I also have a camera/video gizmo on my smartphone and love to document where I’ve been and where I’m going. I’ve turned a few of those photo expeditions into videos with background music.

On the professional side, I’m one of those accidental entrepreneurs that found her path only after being kicked out of a long-term job. Weird as it may sound, I fell in love with entrepreneurship not long after I discovered it. These days I’m teaching at my town’s community education program, running business networking websites and helping people who don’t know where to start with computers. In fact – I teach WordPress!

By all means, feel free to follow my ongoing adventures, have a good laugh or kick back in a nice park overlooking a lake. Try a new dish and watch my tomatoes grow. Have fun. What else is life for?

Oh, yeah. I live in Arlington, which is a suburb of Boston, Massachusetts in the US. I grew up in Western New York, specifically, Buffalo. My family still lives there. My mom sadly passed away in November, 2013. I miss her.

  1. Hi Margy! I found your blog through a link on Monsoon’s site and loved my visit! We share the struggle/fun of getting back into exercise and also shared the misadventure that was Irene. Looking forward to reading more : )!

    1. Thanks! I just did the same. Love your writing goals and the life listers, too. I’m hoping my ongoing journals will keep me honest with my exercise program, other things, too!

  2. Hey Margy,

    I got an e-mail from Vu (he runs We Heart Music) saying he finally got the WHM podcast on iTunes. Hope you don’t mind I mentioned you in my reply… so, basically, iTunes is the foremost way to get your podcast heard?

    Cimmy will be podcasting again, hopefully soon, but it’s hard to get a properly quiet environment sometimes (as you may imagine).

    1. No problem – glad to participate! iTunes is a podcast player. You can syndicate your podcast to iTunes, which is the best known of this type of service. There are other services (libsyn, for one) that lets you record and store your broadcasts. I’m not sure how syndication to iTunes works, but I would imagine the podcast hosts would make that a pretty seamless process.

      Good luck! Looking forward to more tales from Cimmy.

      1. Yep, I’ve used the iTunes program before; I just can’t use it on Linux. Looking at libsyn… looks pretty good; there’s always hope for me if there’s support for Android. At the end of the day, though, it really does come down to costs, even as low as they are.

        More than likely we’ll just keep fiddling with SoundCloud until free storage runs out. Then we will figure things out from there.

      2. Keep us all posted. I’m also interested in podcasting and dabbled with it over the years.

  3. OMGosh, I love your About Page. I can relate in a number of ways. I so wish you lived near me in Southern Calif. I could really use some in person lessons on Word Press. Since I’m an artist, & more importantly a visual, & tactile learner I need someone like yourself. I guess I’ve gotten lazy in my old age because I hate to read, & follow directions. It must be the rebel in me!

  4. Margy, we’re just about the same age and mind-frame. I like the photos you have posted on your about page. You’ll see me stopping by with regularity.
