About Vanessa Smith

I'm Vanessa.
  • I blog. 
  • I've written and published five books.
  • I write about exploring creativity in the context of chronic health conditions, exclusively for my Patreon supporters.
  • I occasionally vlog and podcast.
  • I write a fake "mom blog".
  • I'm teaching myself digital art stuff (what art exactly? I don't know, it's all part of the learning process).
  • I have a RedBubble store.

Sometimes I blog serious things. Sometimes I write satire. I don't believe in niches and I'm interested in lots of things. 

I hate the word hustle and I think shiny object syndrome is a way of working, and not something to be "overcome". 

I've been blogging on www.normalness.com since 2012, but writing online in various formats since about 2003. 

I've started a Patreon account so that those who want to can support me in the many works I create.
Goals
$4.16 of $40 per month
When I reach $40 per month, you'll have helped me cover the cost of hosting, social media scheduling tools and all the stuff that goes into making all the stuff I make!
