About Me

Hey there! My name’s Michelle—but my friends call me Shelly.

I’m a 22-year-old freelance writer and editor who works from home 100% of the time. I blog about my life, my marriage, my puppy (!), and everything in between. Thanks for stopping by!

I grew up in a small town in northern Virginia, where I’ve lived most of my life. In 2017, I graduated from my hometown college (go Hornets!) with a degree in English and went on to work at various local newspapers before I found a career as a full-time freelancer. I’ve edited everything from full-length novels to 350-word news pieces and everywhere in between—and I’ve also published several of my own poems, short stories, and nonfiction articles.

If you’re so inclined, you can learn more about my work history here.

In 2018, I married my high school sweetheart, and later that year, we adopted a border collie named Dakota. As you can imagine, life got hectic. I had previously been blogging at MichelleAdamsBlog.com about college and lifestyle topics, but I fell out of the hobby as I took on more freelance projects and frankly, lost my inspiration. (After all, I was a college blogger—what would I have to write about if not study tips?) But as part of my effort to be more mindful of how I spend my time, I’m jumping back in with both feet.

That’s where this blog comes in! Scroll down to take a look at some of my recent posts.
