About Me and Why I Blog

Always Write is not all about me, and not all about you. It’s a combo. Hi, I’m Marsha Ingrao, editor of Always Write. Welcome to a piece of my world. I love blogging. It changed my life. I live in Central California, Tulare County, in the foothill community of Elderwood, north of Woodlake and east of Visalia.

I retired as the Tulare County History Consultant for the Office of Education. TC History Gal. You can reach me most easily at tchistorygal@gmail.com even though I have more professional sounding emails.
In the past year, I have focused more on writing, blogging, and photography for newbies and non-professional bloggers. I write about those topics on this blog, Always Write.
about me
This is not Vince, by the way.


I can’t stop teaching. I love to learn and try new things, and I want to share with others who get pleasure from those same things. Let me help you with (or laugh at my) blogging problems, pains in photography, time management panic attacks, and technology bloopers.
Everyone needs to know that someone follows what you do in life.  That is what motivates me to blog.  I enjoy life, and the connections I make in the blogosphere. I love your comments. I want to use my skills as a teacher, communicator, and social butterfly to help you succeed.
Having this blog frees my personal blog, Marsha Ingrao  TC History Gal for more personal topics, photo challenges, service and professional organization activities and how-tos, and trips.
My personal blog highlights my learning journey into blogging, writing, photography, as well as my life as a retired educator, activist in professional and service organizations, travel, and my personal life with my husband, Vince.

I rarely send out newsletters. Like my blogging friend Ralph  says on his blog, “Your comments are the best part.” I’m easy to reach. I check my email and Facebook daily and respond right away. If you want something published on Always Write. Be sure to leave comments on this blog. Help me get to know you in this big digital world.
First and foremost I’m a teacher.


I’ve published two books.  
Fiction is still on my bucket list. I have written, but not published two NaNoWriMo novels:
  • Girls on Fire, a fiction novel about three women in their 50s and 60s who are looking for new love and a change in life.
  • Winning Jenny’s Smile, a middle school fiction about Jenny’s first months in a new school.
