Blogger, writer, and social media maven. I love the internet and have been blogging and writing online since 1996. I've been on Hubpages since 2008 and have really enjoyed being a part of this unique writing community. My Hubs cover a lot of territory, but I often write about, graceful aging, interesting places, self-care,food,and my personal favorite,how and why to stop smoking. Can you tell that I am a former heavy smoker who after many attempts managed to kick the habit?
