Thanks for stopping by!
Who runs this joint? I do! My name is Daneen and I'm a fiftysomething divorcee (do people still say that?) living in New England but dreaming of moving to far away (and much warmer) places. I’m a Jane of all trades, mistress of none; seasoned job interviewer and frequent boot-getter (seriously, it's a thing). I don't really have any hobbies, just lots of interests--like my unbridled passion for writing and this here bliggity-blog!
Born and raised in bougie Greenwich, Connecticut, two of my strongest subjects in school were English and Creative Writing. One of my earliest career goals was to write for the children's magazine market (think: Highlights), but life took me in a much different direction.
Married at 23 and divorced by 33 (and raising three children on my own), I learned some extremely valuable life lessons, had a few successes and many failures along the way, and yet somehow managed to muddle through it all relatively unscathed (phew!). Today, I'm on the other side of 50, confident and secure in who I am and where I'm at in life, and why I decided to start this blog: to share what I know, learn what I don't and become familiar with everything in between.
I'm proud to say that we're an award-winning women's lifestyle website, having won both a Blogger's Choice Award and a Blogger Recognition Award for being one of the best women's lifestyle blogs on the web. At Home With Daneen is focused on topics such as health & beauty, fashion, food & drink, house & garden and other lifestyle interests for women of all ages. Our readers enjoy the conversational, tell-it-like-it-is writing style of our articles, and we hope that we convey our blog's mission throughout our pages: to be one of the best all-around women's lifestyle websites by educating, motivating and inspiring women, and to build a community of friendship among us all.
Welcome aboard! We're really glad to have you here.
