Hi, I’m Nicole Olea, I first began blogging in 2007. This site used to be my personal blog, but I’ve got other plans for this space, and I’m now blogging at When I Was Clever. I’ve always been a lifestyle blogger and though I do plan on continuing to share stories about my family’s adventures as my husband and I navigate his serving our nation and the quasi-nomadic life we have with our three children. I want to share more about how I’ve crafted a fearlessly creative life, When I Was Clever, will be the way I do that. I learned a long time ago if I’m not creating, whether it’s: writing, crafting, planting flowers, taking pictures, planning parties, or even doodling poorly, my happy meter tends to go down. I need to create. I believe we’re all meant to be creative, and the best part about creativity is that there are no rules. You can be creative how ever you wish. For example, I’m not an artistic person, I can’t draw to save my life, but I do write, I can craft and make things pretty; here at When I Was Clever, I’ll share how I do that and try to live my best creative life.
What’s my brand of creativity? Typically you’ll find craft posts, DIY projects, photographs, creative celebrations, and since I’m an avid reader you will definitely find book reviews and other book-nerd geekery. As a writer, I also share my personal stories about the craft of writing. Occasionally when the mood suits I will sprinkle in a cocktail I came up with, or even a favorite recipe.
I’m a freelance writer (ghost writing too) for hire. When I Was Clever is PR friendly and open to sponsorship through sponsored posts and guest blogs.
Do you have a web copy you feel could be made better? I would love to discuss my copy editing service with you.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you’re interested in collaborating, hiring me, or advertising on my site.
