Why am I here?
I want my writing to make you laugh, cry, get angry, scratch your head and say "I didn't know that" or any number of reactions -- other than apathy. I haven't done my job very well if I make you yawn and say "Next!" That would be as horrifying for me as a cook not getting a belch for a job well done.
The other reason I'm here? I must write. No, nobody is holding a gun to my head and demanding "Write something now!" I have to write the way I have to breathe. I'm dead without the latter, but without the former, my life becomes dull and listless. Writing is my one great passion in life and has been since childhood.
Who am I?
I actually do have a name. It is Lisa Kroulik. Nybride710 is the user ID that I have for everything I do online. Had I known how quickly I was going to get sucked into this site and that I wouldn't be able to change my user ID, I would have registered to publish my articles under my actual name. Oh well, such is life.
There is a story behind Nybride710, of course. In July of 2010, after a whirlwind romance, my sweetheart and I were married in Niagara Falls, New York. If you want to know more about that, you're just going to have to read my hub about online dating.
What can you expect from me?
The topics I gravitate toward writing about tend to be emotional abuse and personality disorders, history, health, finances, Christian testimony, and the life of a freelance writer. This isn't to say that I have myself pegged, because new ideas float into my brain every day, just vying for the time it takes me to come here and share them with you.
I am certainly passionate about women leaving abusive relationships, and to back this up, I have made the decision to donate my Hub earnings to women's organizations at year's end.
What a Year it Has Been
I found Hub Pages in February 2011, some content writing sites like Textbroker in March 2011 and quit my boring job in April 2011 to make writing online my full-time occupation. I have been doing that for one full year now, and I can't imagine life any other way.
Thanks for reading and Happy Hubbing!
