It’s taken me a long time to come to terms with the fact that I’m addicted to challenge. The harder a problem, the more I want to solve it. This may be the only way to explain the other issue I have…which is…I have too many projects on my plate at one time, always.
But let me back up a minute. My name is Julie Stoian. Here’s the part where I say I’m a “blogger” or a “designer” or a “writer”, but I’m having a hard time with one word.
In essence, I’m potentially your new best friend, or your worst nightmare.
If you hang out with me, you’ll never be bored. I love to educate people about tech, blogging, and design. I have a habit of ranting about the state of religion, women, and food in this country. Randomly, I’ll come up with some brainiac idea like using a birdbath for a fruit bowl or starting a new curriculum, and you’ll either be infected by my energy or enthusiasm, or hate me for it.
Now, here’s the part where I can brag a bit because after all, the goal of all this writing and helping is to become rich enough to create a room in my house outfitted with every Apple device on the market. And if I were really honest, I’d say I’d like to be just a teensy bit famous too.I have some stuff you should know about me. Here’s my adult life in list form.
- I went to college at University of New Haven and earned my degree in Clinical/Community Psychology. I got a 4.06 and received the award for the highest GPA in my program.
- During college, I worked with Regional School District No. 4 as a technology assistant, and this is where I started to learn about computers and design. I implemented Powerschool (an Apple-based student management system) and thus…a geek was born.
- I took a few web design classes in college so I could say I have “official” training.
- When I graduated in 2003, any hope of a career was not in the cards as I walked down the aisle five months pregnant with Evan.
- This is a good spot to insert the fact that I grew up in a very conservative christian environment, which explains in part the young married and pregnant status. Don’t hate me for that statement.
- We had three children very quickly and I embraced life as a SAHM.
- AHAHAAHA. Not so much. I actually felt like a caged animal ready to gnaw my eyes out. By the time the 3rd was born in 2007 (with a severe congenital heart defect), I was close to losing my mind.
- At the end of that year, I began blogging…to survive. I had no idea about the blogging world — I just needed a way to talk to the outside world.
- New York Times interviewed me about social media addiction
- US News & World Report quoted my work during a short stint at InformEd as a tech-education blogger.
- I’ve been quoted on Social Media Examiner, featured on BlogHer, and worked with GoDaddy because of my Fabulous Blogging blog.
- I was asked to be Anderson Cooper’s blogger of the day several times during season 2 of AndersonLIVE.
- BBC World Have Your Say brought me on-air during their radio broadcast about surrogacy and abortion (in response to a piece I’d written).
- I’m a HubPages apprentice alum. I was accepted into their paid writing program and learned about SEO, content writing, and more.
- I spoke at the BlogHer14 in the Geek Bar this year.
- I’ve been interviewed for several CNN parent articles including a discussion about private/public schools andgovernment intervention into child deaths as a result of being left in a hot car
- Featured on In the Powder Room for an article on Google plus
- Interviewed by A Cookie Before Dinner about Tribe mentality in blogging
- Interviewed for Everyday Family about what I want people to think of me when I’m 80
- University of New HavenClinical Psychology, 1999 - 2003This was my actual college education. I received my Bachelor of Science in Clinical Psychology and was awarded highest honors for my GPA in the program. Gotta brag somewhere right?
