Silver Petticoat

In recent years, I had the opportunity to become a contributing writer for Silver Petticoat. I am thrilled to have found this chance and am loving writing for such a classy and informative site. It's an opportunity to write about different things - or at the very least, write about topics in different formats, plus the ladies who run it are fabulously helpful and great to chat with. In case you are unfamiliar with what kind of content Silver Petticoat puts out, their tagline is, "a hybrid online magazine that is a mix between a blog, an entertainment magazine and a journal."

Should you be interested in any of said content, below is a list of articles I've provided thus far, everything from TV recaps to reviews.
