About Jen

picassoglasses1Welcome to Jen on the Edge!

Hi there. I’m Jennifer. Also known as Jen.  I blog from Jenworld, which is my house and the tiny bit of land it sits on and it’s sort of like my very own country in the middle of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Sometimes Jenworld is a democracy and sometimes it’s a benevolent dictatorship (and sometimes not always benevolent). We Jenworld folks don’t have a military, because we are a more or less peaceful nation with only four residents — me, Pete (the resident husband/ dad /co-dictator), Graceful (the older daughter, who is 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13), Elegant (the younger daughter, who is 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11).

So, why “Jen on the Edge”?  I started this blog in early 2007 during a time when I was under a lot of stress and needed the outlet.  Believe me, blogging is way cheaper than therapy.  Some people might not agree that it is as effective, but it works for me and, generally, the people who tell me I need therapy are the ones who actually need it most themselves.

Besides blogging here, I also write at Eco Women: Protectors of the the Planet! Eco Women is about saving Planet Earth one eco act at a time and I hope you’ll go check out the blog and try to do your part to save Planet Earth. I do  some freelance writing and copy editing.  Find out more at Jennifer McDonald writes. Still want more Jen? You can find me on Facebook and Twitter too.

I can be quite snarky and I have an odd sense of humor.  You’ve been warned.

I hope you enjoy your time in Jenworld.
