Thanks for visiting my blog. Let’s get some awkward introductions out of the way.
I’m Ashley Strehle Hartman. I’m a freelance journalist and writer. I have a background in journalism and have worked at local newspapers in Nebraska and Kansas. I’m currently a freelance nightlife columnist for the Omaha World-Herald in Omaha, Nebraska. What’s a nightlife columnist, you ask? Basically, I review area bars but I try to be nice about it. All in all, it’s not a bad gig.
If you want to read more of my journalism work, please check out my professional website. Here, you’ll find my newest Omaha World-Herald articles, my work portfolio, a link to my LinkedIn page and all of that serious, professional writing stuff.
You won’t find that sort of stuff here. Here I write for fun and not for money (though I mean, I’ll take some money if you’re offering it).
In this blog, I share my opinion, just my opinion, or well, opinions. I have a lot of opinions mostly about nachos and The Golden Girls and Leslie Knope. But occasionally, I’ll touch on some more serious things – namely politics, feminism and how we all (including me, obviously) need to try harder to be kinder to each other.
I hope you like my blog and if not, I hope you don’t bother reading it. Life’s too short to spend time reading things on the Internet you don’t like. Go find some videos of puppies or something instead. Or go read The Bloggess. Everything she does is wonderful and magical and amazing. Or go watch reruns of the Great British Baking Show. These are all good suggestions.
But if you want to stay here and read awhile, I’d really appreciate it and I’m glad you stopped by.
P.S. Yes, that is a photo of me devouring a turkey leg in the photo above. I have no good reason for choosing this photo.
