Introducing me: Christina from Christina Q. Writes

about me Christina Q. Writes

By Christina

Recently I rebranded myself, my website, and my blog. That was when it occurred to me that I’ve never written an introduction for the new or old blog. 

Allow me to formally introduce myself. 

If you enjoy the post “Welcome to the Rebranding of my Writing & Lifestyle Business”, you’ll enjoy this one! 

If you don’t know me from social media or here, or from my newsletter, or personally you may have accidentally found me but we should get to know each other.

I would/could write a long story about my life but you’ll get that in bits and pieces instead. I hope this is an enlightened and fun introduction to who I am! 

When you’re done here, be sure to introduce yourself in the comments.
