My name is Karin Porter. I am from Newton Upper Falls, MA. Writing has been my life long passion. My favorite writing is in my personal journals. I have regular day to day life journals, and others for my work experiences, gardening, childhood memories, and dreams/poetry. From 1991-2001 I wrote, edited and published "What's Brewin'", a fan newsletter all about the Boston Bruins hockey team. In those early Internet days, my newsletter helped connect Bruins fans from all over the world. I made many friends, having become pen pals with many of the people who subscribed. I started my blog "Life is What you Make it" in 2011. It is not a money maker, but it brings me personal satisfaction. I write posts about everyday life, and thinking positive. I am a certified Activity Director, who plans and implements activities for nursing home patients. My hobbies include photography, drawing, painting, cooking, and gardening. I LOVE animals more than life itself. God has been good to me!
