I’ve been blogging since 2006 but always anonymously. I want to change that, so this is Emily Birch’s blog. I’ve been alive for some time now, which means I could easily write a long book about myself. I won’t. Suffice it to say that I live in Pennsylvania, and I love books, writing, cooking (when the mood hits and I have time), and a bunch of other things you’ll discover if you read this blog. I hope you will. I also hope you’ll occasionally comment on it.
