Hi and welcome to Hometown Betty! As you know from the title of the blog, my name is Betty, but let me give you a little background about myself.
I am a southern girl by birth, but I lived and worked on the east coast in my 20s, married a man (aka “Prof”) from the west coast, and now in my 30s, reside with our two precocious boys (aka “Piano Man and Linus”) in the beautiful Midwest. You could say we experienced life to the far edges of the U.S.
Hometown Betty is a lifestyle blog detailing my personal life and travel experiences as well as sharing creative projects – from paper crafts, sewing projects, party décor ideas, and home design dilemmas.
The blog takes on a unique approach towards building cultural awareness outside of our local community through different craft and design mediums. It also aims to share lifestyle posts organized in the style of a college course catalog. You will be able to find posts indexed on the Course Catalog page.
The blogging process began when we lived abroad in Cyprus in 2012-2013, when I wrote on a blog called The Seoul of Cyprus. (All thanks to my clever hubby who came up with the title.)
I believe we can all learn from one another, and I hope this site is a place where we can do that. Whether you are from the U.S. or completely on the other side of the world, welcome to Hometown Betty. I hope to hear from you soon.
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
From my hometown to yours,
P.S. Just in case you missed it earlier, I am the only family member who uses my true first name, while I have given online aliases for the rest of our family. I still like to keep a little anonymity every now and then.
