Inspirational Writers With Real Experiences

As a writer, I’m constantly on the look out for inspiration. I find it in the people I meet, the articles I read and the experiences I witness every day. I’ve been lucky enough to stumble upon the work of some amazing writers, and even luckier to know a couple. I wanted to share a few of my favorite bloggers – ranging in topics from self-love to finance…there’s something for everyone!

The Quarter Life by Jenna MacLellan
Jenna was a former coworker of mine who had a large interest in finance and the stock market. We were talking one day when we discovered a similar interest for writing. This is when I was introduced to Jenna’s personal blog, The Quarter Life. The blog focuses on a few key topics anyone in their 20s (or 30s) is dealing with: career, money, travel…and life in general. Jenna writes in a conversational tone and after reading a few of her articles, you’ll realize you have a lot in common.

Self Love Beauty, Contributor Gabriella Hoffman
Gabriella is a good friend of mine; our memories started on the preschool playground and have grown to where we are today. As another contributor for The Odyssey’s Self Love Beauty, Gabby’s words speak for themselves in her writings. A pillar of inspiration and positivity, she writes with you in mind. Her stories come from personal experience as she discusses love, careers, and accepting yourself for who you are. Gabriella is an incredibly talented writer and an even better friend.

Huffington Post, Contributor Kate Bartolotta
I was scrolling through social media one day when I kept seeing the same headline: “How to Get Flat Abs, Have Amazing Sex and Rule the World in 8 Easy Steps.” I finally clicked into the article and decided to see what it was all about. Kate Bartolotta grabs your attention with the headline, but shocks you with amazing copy highlighting much more important aspects of life: finding happiness, letting people in, practicing gratitude. A clever writer knows how to find relation, but an even more clever writer knows how to grab your attention. Kate does exactly this in her efforts of being a lifestyle coach and author. Next on my reading list is Kate’s book, “Choose Joy: A Year of Creating the Extraordinary in Everyday Life.

With the piles and piles of information being thrown at us daily, finding an author you can relate to is more difficult than ever. Jenna, Gabriella and Kate all write with meaning. Their words are relatable, their experiences are real and their goal is to help. You can’t ask for anything more than that when searching for quality advice.

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
