About Joules

me

The non-cartoon version of me.

Growing up as Julie, the only nickname I had was Juls. In college a (nerdy) friend of mine decided that it should be spelled Joules (def: scientific unit of energy) due to my spazzyness. So, it’s been Joules ever since.

I started my blog, Pocketful of Joules, in early 2011 as a place to give marketing and business tips. Since then, it has evolved into so much more — including my story of losing my job only to find one that is so much better for me, pregnancy & working mom craziness, and home improvement projects. It truly has turned into a pocketful of me in blog form.

So, what’s the deal with the cow butt?
Well, I was driving through the country taking pretty pictures one day when I pulled over to take a photo of cows. As soon as I put the camera to my face… a cow started smelling it’s own butt. That’s right, no boring farm pictures for me. I get the one that makes me laugh so hard that tears run down my face! That is pretty much how I approach life — and this blog — things may not work out exactly as I expect but I typically end up laughing hysterically.

I have to toot my horn for just a moment — I am incredibly proud to have been published in the Life Well Blogged series, To Bliss and Back.This honor allowed me to fulfill my dream of becoming an actual published writer. Hopefully it is just the first in a long list of (eventual) writing credits! Something else I’m super proud of is that Pocketful of Joules was named a finalist in the 2013 Bloggie Awards under the category of “Best Kept Secret Weblog.”

So, toot toot.

For your cheat sheet into who’s who in the world of Joules: I have a wonderfully awesome husband (Travis) and a super adorable son (Jack). We also had a furry son, Potter, but he unexpectedly passed away in July 2013. We adopted Ollie (aka Ollivander Rutledge Dellinger) from a shelter in August 2013 and he is fitting into our family quite nicely.

    Your nerdy friend and I think alike. My first thought when I saw ‘joules’ was chemistry related. So, I thought, “Well, maybe this is a chemistry blog?”. I was excited about that prospect as well, but I have found an even better blog than I first imagined. Well done and great name!
