Writers

Marj

Marj Hatzell isn’t a writer but she plays one on TV. She’s a Domestic Engineer, Total Babe, and SAHM of two boys with Autism, ADHD and a variety of other acronyms. Marj was picked last for dodge ball in grade school, was a band geek (she played the flute, and one time, at band camp…), and prefers dogs more than people, which means she has STELLAR social skills. Marj can be bribed to do anything with potatoes and/or bacon. Usually both. Marj also refers to herself in the third person, which is kinda creepy and all Silence-of-the-Lambs-like. If you see her with a bottle of lotion, run. When she isn’t Aiming Low, you can find Marj at her non-paying day job, the wildly unsuccessful blog The Domestic Goddess, on Twitter, and on Facebook.

 

Chris

A self proclaimed “free thinker”, Chris has spent most of his life doing what he wants. He wears lovely velour shirts at will, and he rarely brushes his teeth. If you find something at a thrift store that you feel needs to be modelled, please let him know, and he will tell you where to send it. When he is not being whimsical, he can be found in “The Cocoon” with his forgiving wife, and his dog Blue. Well, except for when it’s time for romance, that’s when Blue has to skedaddle. You only make that mistake once. He can be found at Change The Topic, on the ultra-cool Google+The Twitter, and sadly, Facebook.

 

Alexandra

Alexandra is a writer who has found the secret to getting rich as a blogger that she’ll share with you for just $9.99. When not taking her checks to the bank, Alexandra blogs at Good Day Regular People about life as an overanalyzing mother of three boys trying to go unnoticed in her small town. The most important things you need to know about her are that the internet saves her daily and that she believes the most you can ask for in life is to arrive at the end of it all with your hair messed up, out of breath, and not throwing up. Alexandra is a contributing writer for TikiTikiblog and FunnynotSlutty

 

Lizz

Lizz started blogging at Am I a Funny Girl in 2005, and thought she was late to the blogging thing back then. Now that it’s morphed into a full-blown social media obsession (oh, and actual career!) she blogs all things to all people, as long as you are a suburban 30-something mom who likes the Beatles, baking and photography. She spends her daily commute into San Francisco trying NOT to take photos of the weirdos she encounters on the train. Also, as a word of warning, Lizz is taller in real life than she appears on the internet.

 

 

Kristina

Kristina is a type-A lunatic and a culinary klutz. She has many opinions, most of them about bread. She’s awesome at setting nachos on fire and drinking beer. This in mind she’s the brains at the food blog OnBlank.com. She dabbles in graphic design, self-help writing, bad poetry and working her husband’s wood. (No really, he’s a fine woodworker. You know, like a carpenter? Sha…buncha perverts.) She live-tweets meltdowns at @onblank and is always trying to keep her cheese from slipping off her cracker.

 

 

DJ

D.J. Paris is a writer who believes he’s the funniest blogger on the planet. He’s not wrong, but he’s also writing this bio. Currently #1 in Google for “dick stories” he’s got nothing else to brag about. Well, maybe his hair. He writes every day at ThoughtsFromParis  about the most fascinating subject he knows—himself.

 

 

Meghan

Meghan is an over-sharing writer from Atlanta that has been blogging since 2007. Most people know her as JaMonkey. They don’t really know why but if Dooce can do it so can she. It’s actually the name of her blog where she writes about her family and other random crap Mom’s go through. She also writes about travel and entertainment at Yeah Let’s Go!  When she isn’t writing and social networking she’s trying not to neglect her adorable girls. You can find her on G +Pinning and Twitter @JaMonkey.

 

Karen

Karen is a professional Supply Planner by day, but in 2008, tried her hand at writing as a contributor for Graco Children’s products, Heart to Heart blog.  After sharing a few fun parenting stories, she was hooked on social media, and her personal blog In The Kitchen With KP was born.  Happily married with two children, Karen does not hesitate to rebuff her family’s hungry advances at mealtime, while she styles and photographs their dinner to share on Instagram.

In The Kitchen With KP is full of family friendly adventures around Atlanta (and beyond), plus simple recipes everyone can feel comfortable trying.  In fact, her whole family participates in the cooking/baking fun on a regular basis.  Along with Instagram, you can find Karen feeding her compulsive social media addictions on G+Twitter,Facebook, and Pinterest.

Stephanie

Stephanie Jankowski loves words, hates math, and has a penchant for making people uncomfortable with her honesty. An English teacher by trade and a smack-talker by nature, Stephanie’s family often tires of listening to her speak. Fortunately, her blog,WhenCrazyMeetsExhaustion, affords an acceptable medium to verbally vomit all over the Interwebs. She has written other stuff for different sites, but no one cares. You should be her pal on Facebook and Twitter because that’s what a decent person would do.

Meredith 

Meredith Spidel blogs at TheMomOfTheYear, dedicatedly earning her title one epic parenting fail at a time. When her kids aren’t busy pummeling each other with Legos or requiring their 16th sippy cup refill of the day, she tries to offer quick, relatable laughs for fellow parents of the world and all their empathizers. She remains entirely terrified by crafts, promises to never share any useful household tips, and is fully committed to a less serious look at the world of parenting. Social media is beyond her comprehension, but she makes a pass at Twitter and Facebook. – See more In The Powder Room!

Lindsay

Lindsay MaloneLindsay Maloan is a Jill of All Trades. She can take purty pictures, arrange the snot out of some flowers, sew a dinosaur hoodie for your wee T-Rex, and she knows most of the words to “Baby Got Back.” If you are lost in the woods, Lindsay won’t help you survive, but she can name the tree you lay down to die under.  A former zookeeper and current public servant, she’s familiar with all the stops on the crazy train. A good thing, too, considering she’s got twin girls baking in the old lovin’ oven. She lives in New Orleans with her husband, preschooler son, and dogs. You can find more of her many words and deeds on her blog, With A Little Love and Luck

Stephanie

Stephanie Ross headshot One time Stephanie Ross let the thrill of getting her passport stamped propel her into a two-year stint of living in Poland with her twin sons and husband. No, she does not speak Polish. At all. She bought groceries via a series of grunts and interpretive dance. Now that she’s back on terra Texas, she’s also back to teaching middle school English. When she’s not avoiding grading, she’s avoiding writing on her website TalkingIsMyPrimaryFunction.com

Meredith

Meredith Bland lives in Seattle, WA where she does mediocre writing, mildly offensive parenting and writes the funny on her blog Pile of Babies.

Noa regularly performs sketch and improv with her troupes: Atlantic Pacific Billy (get it: three oceans) and Dick Pony (it’s a pony made of dicks). She is, as you assume from reading this, a regular embarrassment.

Dana

Cindy

Cindy Reed avoids actual pants and is overly fond of a jaunty fedora. If you visit her at The Reedster Speaks, you’ll find her blogging almost exclusively about her underwear. She’s also a contributing editor atyeah write, a weekly writing challenge for bloggers. If you still can’t get enough of her, you could follow every pearl of wisdom that drops from her lips on TwitterFacebook, and Google+. She has exactly one rap video. She lives in Asheville, North Carolina, the cesspool of sin.

Unger

Unger, (known by his first name “Ryan” to only is parents), spends his time exploring consciousness and pondering important questions like: “Why are we here?” “What’s the meanng of life?” “Where’s the rest of my LSD?” Always a lover, most times a dancer, never a fighter. He’s morally against stress, and advocates a Zen mind. Residing right outside New York City, Unger tries his best  to avoid the consumerist culture that infests Manhattan by spending his time writing vulgar poetry. Unger will tell you he finds it incredibly fascinating that poetry is the route that life has taken him.
