It’s finally happening! In 2019, I’m going to launch my advice column: Ask MommyK8 right here on this website! I’m ironing out a few details, but I hope to get it running in the next few weeks.
Why do I think I’m qualified to give advice? Well, I’m glad you asked. First off, people ask me for advice all the time, and I have been told for years that I should start an advice column, so – people already trust me enough to ask my advice. Secondly, I’m old and I’ve done and seen and researched a lot of things. For example, I’ve been married for 18 years. I have 2 kids. I have a chronic illness. I’m a published writer with an MFA. I am a voracious consumer of media and literature of all types, genres, viewpoints, and faiths. I think it’s time to put some of that knowledge to use and maybe help some people!
As always, I will address advice-seekers with humor, but I will never be mean. This is in good fun, and not meant to be any sort of official health, legal, etc. etc. advice. This means – don’t sue me. Ultimately, I would like to launch a podcast someday, but let’s see how this goes first.
I will need content! Until I get my official e-mail address going, if you have something you’d like my advice on, please email Kate dot Kastelein @ gmail dot com. (written out to prevent spam bots.) Let’s give this a shot!
