Hello friends, glad you could stop by. My name is James, but everyone calls me Jim . . .or Tony . . . or Jimmy, no wonder I haven’t found myself yet, I don’t even know my real name! But seriously, welcome to Blogging Around With The Original Domestic God, I can’t wait to meet you. Now a little bit about myself . . .
I have always loved to write, but only as a hobby. I believe it was because I had the mindset that I wasn’t a good enough writer to ever make it. I studied music and the performing arts for many, many, years right up through college. That’s when I became . . . “A mailman” Yes, you read that right and for the next 23 years that was my full time profession. I did however; teach dance, choreograph and perform as my part-time job (I liked that one the best!) up until 2011 when a serious, life threatening, injury ended my career as both a mailman and a dancer.
Over the next two and a half years I would have 8 major surgeries, 2 blood clots, years of physical therapy and a staph infection that almost killed me on Halloween night 2012. All before the age of fifty. That’s when I became disabled, or as I like to say “Perfectly Changed” and took my rightful place as “The Original Domestic God!” Considering that I had a great deal of down time to look forward to I decided to pursue my writing career. Hey, better late than never, right?
In 2013, I self-published my first ebook “How To Apply The Law Of Attraction” on Kindle and also had my very first song go live on iTunes as part of a Christmas compilation album. You see, “Disabled” doesn’t have to mean dead. The next part of my writing journey was to become a Copywriter, a Copywrite Specialist to be exact. I love to create and writing sales pages or fundraising letters for both print and online mailings was a natural fit for me. I am always looking for new clients so please be sure to contact me with any questions or opportunities.
So much of my writing comes from Life Experiences and the challenges and triumphs that make us who we are. I have been married for 30 years and have been blessed with 3 beautiful daughters, a granddaughter and grandson.
