Linda Sharps

Hello! I've been a blogger since 2002, a parent since 2005, and a reluctant LEGO expert since 2012. After over a decade in marketing -- my last position was with the Omni Group -- I became a freelancer in 2010. I'm currently a daily writer/weekly columnist at The Stir, and my past work has included marketing communications and brand management (Jaali Bean, Oakley, and Sway Group are recent clients), social media management, and corporate blogging.

I've also been a contributing writer for Cherokee USA, TakePart, Work It, Mom!, ParentDish, Edelman, Kimberly-Clark, ClubMom, Gather.com, Daily Grommet, Lemondrop, and more. I was voted one of Babble's Top Twitter Moms of 2011, and a Babble Top 100 Mom Blog in 2012.

I live in Eugene, Oregon with my family, where I spend my days wrangling two rambunctious boys, furiously typing into my overheated laptop, and ignoring the laundry.
