Kandy began blogging back in the Salad Days of the online blog, back when a few people were still quaintly referring to it as "web blogging". That was nearly 13 years ago, and she hasn't stopped blogging since. While it began as a fun pastime, her online journal built up a following of readers/voyeurs, and it wasn't long before she realized that she wanted to write for a living. As foolhardy as this endeavor seemed, she pushed forward and was hired as a reporter for a series of upstate New York weekly newspapers, and within a couple of years of honing her journalistic skills, she found herself in the enviable (albeit frustrating) position of being offered almost more work than she could handle. During her time as a local news journalist, she wrote countless articles on a variety of topics including local government and elections, events, art gallery openings, interesting local personalities, environmental issues, and town/village board coverage. She also wrote a monthly column for a local daily paper focusing on small businesses, real estate, and towns of interest. Most recently, Kandy has been writing for a popular upstate New York real estate/lifestyle blog. Kandy has over a decade's worth of experience not only writing for her own pleasure, but for the pleasure of others, and both remain equally fulfilling.
Kandy's specialties include blogging for laughs, newspaper journalism, real estate writing, music, health, and the arts.
Kandy has a degree in music with a focus on classical voice performance from the University of Michigan and has been performing on stage since the age of five. Additionally, Kandy has a keen interest in health and nutrition, and she is currently studying to become a certified yoga instructor. She also loves to read, run, swim, make music with her fiancee, write comedy sketches, explore ruins, look at real estate listings for houses she'll never be able to afford, and play Scrabble with her 10 year old daughter, Madeline.
