One of the best ways to end a summer day is to watch the sun set on your front porch. However, your porch may be less of a summertime hangout and more of a sight for sore eyes, as it probably hasn't been sat on too much all winter. Now is the perfect time give your porch space a little TLC.

Story
Tagline
I have a passion for writing and life. I'm a crafter and a traveler, and a full-time blogger.
Introduction
My name is Courtney Gordner and I'm addicted to writing.  I went to college to get a degree in Journalism at Penn State University and now my pen ink bleeds blue and white.  But practicing journalism 40 hours a week hasn't been enough.  I am also a freelance writer and professional blogger to supplement my time off of writing with more writing.  

In addition, I'm a blog editor for a couple of publications as well as run my own personal blog, Talk Viral.  Talk Viral covers a variety of ramblings from yours truly, but also aims to provide writers with the essentials to marketing themselves as a writer, promoting themselves through Public Relations, as well as helping businesses grow from your content. 

Also, I am obsessed with the idea of traveling the world, while my reporting allows me some international travel, I'm always craving more.  I also love DIY crafts and spend way TOO MUCH time on Etsy.
Bragging rights
I've been to three different continents. Try and guess which ones!
