Many of you  have suffered with my not so great grammar and punctuation over the past four years and I apologize. I have a mild form of dyslexia and the English language was never a strong point for me during my education. I am happy to inform you that things are changing here at the Tiny House Blog with the addition of a copy editor.

Kasey March has joined Tiny House Blog as the copy editor. She graduated from the College of New Jersey with a BA in English and minors in Creative Writing and Women & Gender Studies. She recently began a trend spotting, decoration, & DIY blog Buttonwood Cottage (buttonwoodcottage.blogspot.com). By day, she is a college consultant in Pennsylvania where she helps juniors and seniors find schools that are the right fit. By night, she works on her plan to build a cob home that meets her tiny house needs. When not researching cob building, she is ignored by her cat, Calvin, and adored by her dog, Hobbs, who live with her in southern New Jersey.

Please join me and welcome Kasey to the Tiny House Blog team.
