About Me

Why Blog, Right?

I love blogging. It changed my life.
Hi, my name is Marsha Ingrao. 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.
My blogs, this is my personal one, highlight 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.

This is not Vince, by the way.

I write to and for you.

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.
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 my Just Write blog. That frees this blog for more personal topics, photo challenges, service and professional organization activities and how-tos, and trips.

Relationships are important to me

Connect with me and I’ll send you my free newsletter which includes tips like time management, marketing strategies, content writing, building relationships, and solving technology problems. Most important, I’ll visit your blog and leave comments in hopes that you will do the same for me. Like Ralph used to say on his blog, “Your comments are the best part.”

Just so You Know

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.
  • They’re still not great, and I go back and rework them as I learn new writing skills.

          1. Oh. I guess they have four of them a year. I’ve never tried one, but I decided to try this one because it’s only for a month. I have the two blogs. I thought I would switch back and forth between them. I think a person can post too much and too frequently, so I don’t want to do that. 🙂

          1. It’s run by me so it’s going to be a pretty chilled group. Lol…. If you could share in the idea in principal, supporting authors, loving books, posting occasional links re: reviews to the club FB page or author interviews, etc. That kind of thing. Nothing too time consuming. Basically sharing what you already do via the club, and making new blogging friends. 🙂

Nothing too time consuming. Basically sharing whatever posts you want to via the club and or liking other members posts. Just a bit of fun!
