Welcome to Giddyupandwrite! Here’s the story…

                            Hello to all of you lovely people stopping by to read my VERY FIRST blog post ever in the history of the world! (That is the qualification my eight-year-old requires to determine how excited he should be. I think his reasoning is that if it’s actually never happened EVER, then geez-it must be awesome!)

  1. I don’t know if this will be “awesome,” but I’m fairly certain you’ll enjoy coming along for the ride.
  2. Horses, reading, writing,  family and maybe a smidge of support group for hopeless candy addicts. (I may have a friend who needs some help…ok, fine. It’s totally me. If the blasted stuff were only health food… I would be sooooo healthy. Don’t judge-we just met!) Anyway, these are the topics I’ll be rambling on about.
  3. At the end of the day, I just want to make some good people smile, whether in recollection of their own comparable tales, or just because mine are pretty amusing. And of course, I’ll share some helpful tips relating to aforementioned subjects.

(except the candy addiction. I’m open to any of your hints though)

I’m super excited, to tell you the truth- even though the idea of starting a blog scares the apples right out of this technically challenged newbie. But, I’m pursuing a career as a freelance copywriter- and let me tell you, apparently “one MUST have a blog!”  At least according to the courses I’ve been taking, and most sources offering start-up advice. “Social Presence,” and all that.

At first, I was just going to skip the whole blog thing. Concentrate instead on LinkedIn, and my website. (neither of which I’ve set up yet-EEK!!!)

 *Yay! I have remedied that! Feel free to pop on by:


My LinkedIn

Especially after reading all of the awesome blogs out there- I mean,


what in the world would I write about?

   “Pick something you’re passionate about, Sara.”

  Um…ok, but the only problem there is, I am quite a passionate person, and I love LOTS of things! AND if the whole purpose of the blasted thing was for my copywriting then how would narrowing down my passions to horses, reading, writing, and family,  (not necessarily in that order) even correlate remotely?

     I mean, I totally get that it’s the actual writing that’s important, but the whole blog happy, rich, and successful copywriting coaches and crew are just going to be astonished when this girl becomes a smashing success sans blog…I thought to myself.

   Then how are you reading my blog at this moment?

Well, here it is…I was laying in bed, my brain going a million miles an hour (used to go a million and three, but I’m not as young as I once was, and I’m missing a uterus. Hormones mess with your brain speed, but that’ll keep for another post) and all I kept thinking was that

I wish I could just really let loose and be exactly me. 

    Is there a blog in heaven, shining a glorious celestial cyber-light on my problem? As I lay there hearing a chorus of keyboard clicking and a soft snore, (the Hubs- sooooo irritating, but I love that guy so I’ll put up with it, mostly) I realized that THE BLOG was my answer-duh, stupid me.

    So, if you can forgive my epic intro- this blog is gonna be

just exactly me.

And I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that in passion, heart, humor, and whimsy, I may not be the only one looking to be that version of themselves too…

Now enough Dr.Phil-ing it up in here!

Let’s talk HORSE!


Please rest assured your email won’t be shared with anyone,
because that is super annoying- I know!
