A Little About Me & This Blog
Hello and welcome to The Great Canadian Housewife. My name is Kadie or Kirsten if you’re coming from A Story About A Girl. I started this blog in late February 2020 as a place for me to write about things that I did not necessarily want to write about on my personal blog A Story About A Girl. After years of being miserable in my job as a call center agent and trying a failed career change, my husband and I made the decision that I would go back to school and do what I really want to do, web development.
We also made the decision that I would stay at home rather than working during this time and concentrate on school work and the blog I wanted to start (this one) and so I enrolled in Computer and Information Systems at Athabasca University full time minoring in Web Development. I am taking a full 4-year undergraduate program and blogging on the side part-time. I hopefully intend to make it into part of my journey into web development and start my own company.
It the meantime The Great Canadian Housewife was born. This blog is a combination lifestyle, chronic illness & mental health blog where I will/am blogging about brands and products that I love, doing reviews on products, services, and books, blogging about crafting and DIY, recipes, blogging tips, chronic illness, mental health and more. I am hoping over the next few months and years to develop my writing and blogging skills, collaborate with some great brands, find some new ones, as well as post about topics that people find helpful or interesting.
If you are interested in working with me you can contact me through my work with me page. I can also help with setting up WordPress and creating or editing themes, writing content, and many other things. Contact me here if you have any questions about anything you find on this blog or have any questions for me.
