I started Kopping an Attitude at an early age, so it seems only natural I would one day build a site with that name. (Yes, the spelling is correct; it is a play on my last name.) I am, among other things, a dreamer, outdoorsman, RC Cola addict, bicycler, hiker, writer, photographer, gardener, and accordion player. I love home and family, wide open spaces, puffy white clouds piled high over the mountains, and small furry animals, especially rabbits. I put my own spin on life and tend to view the world a little differently. My other blog, everthedreamer, was intended to record my journey to becoming an author, a diary of sorts listing triumphs and struggles sprinkled with tidbits of advice. The struggles were many, the triumphs were few. The more I learned about “Writing” and all that the term encompasses, the more I realized how much I would NEVER know and how unlikely mine would ever provide a living. As a result, I had little advice to offer save what NOT to do, most of which most writers have already discovered for themselves. Then last summer I came up with ideas for humorous posts from, of all places, my garden (A Tale of Two Quails and the Red Menace; and, The Incredible, Edible Zucchini). Not only were they fun to write, people enjoyed reading them. Thus was born KoppingAnAttitude, life as I see it, encompassing everything from humor to reflection. Welcome aboard!
