Becky’s writing

Writing background

When Becky Blades graduated from the University of Missouri School of Journalism, she knew two things for sure:

  1. writing with objectivity is the most important quality of a journalist, and
  2. she did not want to be a journalist.

Becky likes choosing sides. She likes to make a point, champion a cause, and yes, sell a product she believes in. After a career writing for brands and businesses, Becky now writes to celebrate the causes she loves most: the art of starting, the joy of creative living, and the impact of humor, kindness and community.

Becky collects old typewriters, and sometimes begins writing projects on one of her favorites. Don’t be surprised if you see some of these hand-typed words show up in her art and social media.
