Welcome to my Substack.
I have no idea what I’m doing here and am learning as I go, so this should be fun. Why substack? I still have my blog, but consider this a hybrid between my weekly newsletter and the personal stories I shared with my newsletter subscribers. There are stories I am not comfortable putting on my blog, so those will be featured here, in this more intimate community.
These posts will be archived instead of lost in the inboxes of the subscribers that receive them. In the end, I think (and hope) this content will be a bit more helpful.
I will share what’s new each week both in my life and on my blog - the things that are on my mind along with recent finds and I’ve heard this is a better option for Q&As so I’ll give that a go, too.
And about me.
I’m Danielle. A mom of 3, childhood cancer advocate, and the former co-owner and cofounder of The Everygirl and The Everymom. I sold my half of the company after my daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia, and started living a life in-line with the things that matter, and the way I want to live. I basically went from managing 2 blogs and a team, to managing 1 blog and 0 team members, and it’s been wonderful.
I now only take on the partnerships that I align with, share the things that are meaningful to me, and finally have that balance I spent years chasing. It turns out I just had to find the thing that made me happy.
I’m a “vintage” blogger – I’ve been at this since 2007. It was nice to have a chance to grow something, but going back to my roots, and sharing the things that I love, my stories, and now, experiences as a mom, is what I love.
This is all very new to me and I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing, so this should be fun.
