About Tracy

I’m a writer and the creator of a character called Subbie. I’ve tinkered with blogs and websites since 2000 and I enjoy sharing what I know.

About the Blog

In a nutshell, this blog is about the journey to moving up in life. It includes life lessons, articles on habits, tool reviews to build a blog, some humor, and Subbie; the diary of an unknown blogger.

Recently, I’ve developed and interest in everyday fashion and running. Hence, I blog, run and style.

My vision with this website is to inspire the everyday young adult to make small changes that move them up into their best version.

This would be considered a lifestyle blog. I write about:

  • Life Lessons
  • Fashion
  • Habits and Productivity
  • Tech posts on programs and apps I like
  • Social Media
  • Everyday comedy: the stuff that happens to make laughs and I jot it down.

I also have an online store of everyday items that I totally recommend and love. From time to time I have partnerships with different websites and I shave them here with you!
