About the Blog
I’ve been blogging since 2003, and at worldwidewatercooler.com since March 2005. Most of my archives are online.

This site chronicles a bunch of my life, beginning in a time before blogs were considered “part of the media.” It includes posts from a great deal of my misspent youth, through some dating adventures, meeting my husband, traveling the globe, having a kid, and relocating from Canada to the UK. In-between there is a lot of food, fun, photography, and utter nonsense.

This blog still isn’t “part of the media.” I have done some solicited product reviews and played with ads, and ultimately decided they’re not really right for me. I primarily use this site as a place to play with ideas, keep up with old friends, and perhaps make some new ones.

Do we still do that? Make friends from blogging? I hope so! (ps. lovely to see you, your hair looks really nice today!)

Why WorldWideWaterCooler? I read the phrase somewhere, and loved it. I’m sorry I didn’t make a note of where I found it – if I remembered I would credit the clever monkey who coined it. If I stole it from you – sorry, and thanks!

The water cooler idea pretty much sums up my attitude toward blogging. Originally, the concept was that if I had co-workers that I liked, the things I posted would be what I’d normally talk to them about around the water cooler.

Welcome. Can I get you a glass?

    Hi,

    Just a head’s up to let you know that I’ve added your blog, worldwide water cooler, to the British Columbia Blogs directory and aggregator at publicbroadcasting.ca – if for any reason you do not want your blog listed, please let me know and I’ll take it back down immediately.

    Cheers,
    Justin

    Hello Jen

    I was hoping I could chat with you about your blog.

    I work for a word of mouth marketing company called Matchstick and I’m researching popular Vancouver blogs to get a better idea about the culture. If you have a few minutes, would you mind if I called you with a few questions about your blog and the world of blogging as well as to get your feedback on a new tech item? It shouldn’t take too long.

    Thanks a lot Jen!

    Jeff
