Who’s behind this “Hints of Green Blog?”
Good question! My name is Kelin and I am the main author of the Hints of Green Blog. I plan on utilizing the expertise of others along the way, so there may be other authors featured here in the future. For now, I’ll tell you a little about myself and what prompted me to start the Hints of Green Blog.
Things I love include- snow, palm trees, photographs, ladybugs, green tea, college football, travel, coupons, mojitos, snail mail, mountains, beaches, homemade popcorn, exercise, basil, key lime pie, recycling, dangling modifiers, Skyline chili, and red wine.
Things I detest include- misplacing my keys, a dirty windshield, whiskey, encountering spiders, pollution, hypocrisy, au jus, automated menus on the phone, rollerskate shoes, fast food industry, hurricanes, luggage fees, and text messaging.
I have a BS from Radford University and an MA from University of Idaho. I’ve lived in Ohio, Virginia, Idaho, Washington, and now Utah- as well as Ireland. I love to be outside- my stomach tickles when it snows. I’ve taught English to college students and coached high school girls Basketball. I enjoy taking photos, reading books, riding a bicycle, and watching college football.
I am a publications specialist for an organization in California but on the side I have an envelope-making business called YellowGreen. This is my creative outlet- I make fun envelopes out of old atlases, calendars, books, etc. All reused materials. I’ll feature them in a blog post one day 🙂
I hope you enjoy the tid bits I share here. My goal is simply to spread some helpful knowledge to people who are interested in making healthy changes in their lives and the lives around them. I genuinely believe every little bit helps and sometimes people just need suggestions as to what actions to take.
Enjoy – I look forward to getting to know my readers so please comment and share your own helpful hints of green! 🙂 ~ Kelin
