“Hi, I’m M.A. Bell and I’m writing this blog to chronicle my transition from full-time Mom to successful graduate of the intensive Web Technology A.E.C. Program at John Abbott College, and, hopefully, on to a job as a web designer.”

Wow. I wrote that in March of 2009. And I’ve come a long way in the years since then!

I did reach my goal of getting a job as a web designer. That was interesting but I found it very restrictive (and quite boring since I never got to meet any of the clients!).

So I set out on my own and created a successful web design business, Digital Insite!

I live in a small town on a small island just west of Montréal, Québec.

When I’m not designing a new website or blogging here, I’m usually found either at the stables with my horse, Chips, in my garden (when there’s no snow on the ground!) or reading a book.

I’m not going to tell you how old I am – numbers don’t really matter that much to me – but I am definitely in the “Second Act” of my life.
