So I used to blog regularly, at carolynturgeon.blogspot.com, where you’ll find posts from me dating back to 2006, about all kinds of misadventures (and before that I had a blog on Livejournal that I started in 2004). Then in 2011 I started my mermaid blog, I Am a Mermaid, and instead of personal stories started posting interviews with everyone from Tim Gunn to Alice Hoffman to the Magnetic Fields to the mermaid from Beach Blanket Bingo. I still love mermaids—who doesn’t??—but now, with the launch of this new website, I’ve decided to start blogging again about the human world, in all its tailless beauty. So look here for little stories and the occasional bit of writing advice, and please email me if there’s anything you’d like me to talk about.
