I wasn’t crunchy until I became a parent. Sure, I worked out, I ate right, but once I got pregnant and realized how important my job was — my new job was — I wanted to do everything in my power to do the right thing. Figuring out what’s right, however, isn’t as easy as it seems. Our culture conspires against us. I’ll be using this blog to sort through all the noise and bring a little attention to some subjects that I hold near and dear.
In my day job I am a writer and an editor. You’ve read my work under my byline — Karen J. Bannan — in almost every major consumer publication from The New York Times to Parents to Marie Claire. I also do quite a bit of custom work. You can read more about me and check out some of my work on my Web site: www.karenwriter.com.
