Creating this blog was intimidating because I wasn't sure what I wanted to write about.

The thing is, I'm a journalist! I spend hours every week writing news, sports and entertainment stories. A journalist should have plenty to write about. After my newscasts are written, rewritten and edited I read the stories on the air Monday-Friday on a major market radio station. I love my job because I'm writing history, but these are not my stories.

My great grandfather, Hubert Evans, was a famous Canadian writer and he always said "write what you know". CanLit icon, Margaret Laurence, called him "the elder of our tribe" (so I think he knew what he was talking about!)

So what do I know?

I know I'm a 26-year-old career woman who recently moved back to the big city to pursue my dream job. The happiest day of my life was when I married my best friend. Family and friends are really important to me and I'm blessed because I know love, life and adventure. And that's what I'm going to write about!

Welcome to my blog "Starring Alyssa as Herself".
