Bar JD is a staple name with my family. It could be considered our family CREST. Many, many years ago, we registered a brand (yes, a livestock BURN brand) in Wyoming. It looks like this: .—JD
We didn’t have much for livestock. A few horses were marked with our brand, using tiny, delicate branding irons that didn’t burn as much as a tattoo needle. Our brand is not currently registered in Wyoming, but it is registered in Missouri.
We branded more picnic tables and tools than animals. And, I took the brand as a BRAND name for my virtual assistant practice. That’s the short story.
Bar JD for Business
I’ve worked as a virtual assistant since 2003. At that time, I lived in a remote area in Wyoming. The connections made through internet exposure were wonderful. Because I liked the internet, I also liked websites, especially. When WordPress became a stable platform, much loved by Google, I learned to work with it. While building WordPress websites is no longer the focus of my practice I still use the platform exclusively.
Exciting and Welcome Changes Come to Bar JD
In 2019, I moved to full-time blogging. I enrolled in The Elite Blogging Academy. I thought at the time, I knew all about blogging. I quickly realized that was an inaccurate assumption. I’ve worked on multiple projects and found an unexpected niche. In 2020, I joined Nick Pavlidis’ Ghostwriting School and Hope*Writers. When you subscribe to Bar JD or the other blogs, I promise not to BURY you with nonsense emails. I use a fantastic email service, FLODESK
I review books at Cardinal Bluff Reviews. Reviews include non-fiction and fiction, with a focus on ‘clean, flinch-free’ reading. We have been experimental gardeners for many years, continuing among the humid rocks of the Ozarks. I blog gardening thoughts and information at The Legacy Gardens.
I live and work in rural areas. The first was in the high deserts of south-central Wyoming. In 2004, we moved to the Missouri Ozarks. We have lived on a small ‘patch’ of nearly 4 acres. We are currently moving to rural northeastern Colorado. We hope to be all settled there before Thanksgiving.
My name is JudyAnn and I live on a small ‘island’ of land near Mansfield, Missouri, right at the Crossroads of the Ozarks and of two major highways — US hwy 60 and Missouri hwy 5.I’m joined on this little spot in the Ozarks by my husband, companion dog, Sandy, several cats, some chickens, and a couple of horses.
