A copywriter, a physicist and a mom walk into a bar…

in #introduceyourself3 years ago

They glance at each other, then head off to different parts of the room.

The copywriter heads to a table near the front windows. The physicist takes a seat at the bar, and the mom finds a cozy booth near the bathrooms.

Before long the copywriter is asking to see the owner because she thinks she can help improve their marketing and online presence.

The physicist is irritating the hell out of everyone at the bar. She’s engaged the bartender in a deep discussion about the nature of the universe. No one else is getting their drinks because the bartender is so fascinated at the possibilities he’s forgotten anyone else is there.

The mom settles into the booth with both feet up on the bench and begins reading her new favorite book using the Kindle app on her phone. She smiles at the waitress delivering her the soda she ordered and disappears back into her book – after checking for text messages from her kids.

Now, imagine they’re all the same person. Me.

Surprised? This isn’t that kind of joke!

This is an intro blog post after all. : )

I’m the nightowl writer. I enjoy hearing the click, click, clicking of my keyboard late at night when everyone else is asleep. I consider the night my natural habitat, but kids and work mean I’ve needed to adapt. I now blend my time between day and night.

Though if I’m being honest, and I always am, the most significant part of the three personalities within me is the mom. My kids are the most important part of my life, and I am so grateful to have them. My daughter is at university, and my son is just becoming a teenager. We are all very close and have survived together through many challenges. I’m not likely to talk about them too much here though. I try to respect their privacy because everything that goes on the internet is there forever. And though I may love a story about them, they may not want that online for the world to find should they achieve the greatness I believe them destined to find.

But both science and writing call to me and I will share a lot about both topics freely. I have a master’s degree in physics, and I’ve been writing since, well, since I knew how to write. I’ve finally decided it’s about time I polish off some of what I’ve written and get it published. So, I’ll be sharing that journey here.

I work as a freelance copywriter, helping businesses create online content that helps them grow, so you’re likely to see content on marketing or business too. And of course, I’m excited to write about science topics – physics primarily. I’ve also read some of the fantastic science and STEM content on Steemit and am looking forward to joining that community.

I’m excited to get going on this new experience called Steemit!

Oh yea, I have upvoted you and followed you. Many blessings from @introbot & @bycoleman

Thank you! I'll check all of these out asap.

I like how you made your introduction a story (looks like you really can write) and the text was really easy to read as well as it was interesting :)

Thank you for the compliment. I only wish I could have actually thought of a funny punch line!

But you know, it's best that you don't push it! maybe next time you'll be punching lines😉

Welcome, and good luck to the journey!

Thank you!

Loved the intro. As a fellow writer, I applaud thee. Really pulled me in, especially that title. xD

I'm not a science person myself (failed or dropped science in high school), but I can see the potential in your writing ability. Keep up the great work, and hope to see more of your writing in the future!

I appreciate the feedback, especially from a fellow writer. One of my things is trying to make science not so scary. I teach physics to kids once a month with a goal of making it fun. Smiling faces and laughter is the goal because when you're having fun it makes learning much easier. That's my soapbox for the day!

welcome aboard! Enjoyed your talk as well.
Its really nice to see all this amazing people are joining steemit :)

Thank you! I'm excited to see the community on here too.

Ahhh you like science, and late night writing.. And you just now made it to Steemit? 😄 you'll fit right in here. I hope you do well here. I suspect that you will. Welcome aboard.

I guess I'm a little slow on some things, but I'm happy to be here now. Next, I need to figure out how to put those emojis in my comments...Thanks for the welcome!

Absolutely! Stay active, communicate with others, try to build relationships and credibility. Stay true to those simple instructions, and I promise you will do alright. Don't expect to get rich here. This takes work . Take a look at my profile and wallet. I've worked very hard to achieve a mere couple hundred dollars worth of income in a few months. It's not easy, but it's all about your values. I would enjoy steemit with no monetary gain, and this is probably why I've earned a little bit more than most who just start out. Of course if you have money to invest, it's recommended that you invest. It's just the way this world works, more money will give people the preconceived notion that you are more interesting as a person. As sad as that may seem.

I didn't even realize you could buy your way in! I'm happy to keep up with the grind but I'm curious how that part of it would work. So much to research and learn about!

I have a discord server I dedicate to helping new users. You are welcome to join us if you want. If so I'll give you the link. Also I'm preparing to do my daily dogecoin giveaway if your interested, but you must be quick. Their done within minutes.

Yes to the discord server! And as a newbie I have no idea what a daily dogecoin is or how to be quick about it. I looked it up and saw what you did there! I'll have to catch the next one, once I figure out what my payment address is. : )
Thank you!
