579611_origWelcome! Whether you accidentally stumbled upon us, or purposefully joined us here, we are glad you could make it.  My name is Jessica and I am a college graduate with a love for reading, writing, and helping people.  You can learn more about me personally on the Meet The Author section of the blog.

A few years ago, I decided it would be fun to start blogging. I wasn’t sure what about or how I was going to begin this new journey.  I stumbled upon Blogger, which was an easy and simple platform for beginners like me. I created a funny blog name, a journal-style for my posts, and started blogging away.  I quickly outgrew Blogger and needed to find something that suited my style more.  One of my classes at Kent introduced me to WordPress and it was obvious this was the next step for me.  From there, I decided that a new name was in order- Thoughts of Jess! This title embodied the feel that I wanted for this blog- a fun site with fresh ideas on everything from organizational tips to book reviews and thoughts on current events.

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
― Ernest Hemingway

My hope for you, my readers, is that you can appreciate, enjoy, and learn from the posts here on this blog. The learning process works both ways, and I hope to hear from you all, whether it be from comments on the posts, or emails about things you would like to read about. Life is not stagnant, and neither is this blog, and it wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for you.

So thank you from the bottom of my heart, and make sure to follow Thoughts of Jess to keep updated on this fabulous adventure!
