Dear Reader,

Welcome to my online space!

On Vernitra’s Notes, I share nature photographs, reflections, and words on books and other things that interest me. My favorite form of creative expression is writing—reveling in words, piecing together sentences, trying to tell a story. I blog to express my thoughts, to capture moments in time, and for the pleasure and therapeutic benefits of writing.

I’m glad you stopped by, and I hope you find something you like or can relate to.

Sincerely,

Vernitra

Photos of Me

I was born in the 1980s and grew up in Houston, Texas. For as long as I can remember, I have loved reading, writing, and creating. I have a bachelor’s degree in history and a master’s degree in library science. After college, I interned at MTV in New York City, where I wrote episode summaries and promotional copy for MTV shows on MTV.com. I later briefly worked as an office production assistant in Hollywood. I have also worked as a teacher, public children’s librarian, and adult reference librarian in Houston, as well as a children’s librarian in New York City.

In the early 2000s, I taught myself basic HTML and built a simple website from scratch. In 2009, I created my first blog, on the Blogger platform. In 2012, I started blogging on WordPress.com. Writing and creating content are two of my favorite pastimes.
