Who I am & Why I’m Here!


This is me, Ashley Kagaoan! I’m an LA girl living in a small condo with my husband, two daughters and pug-dog. I practice yoga and meditation. And I’m currently addicted to the show Lost. Please, don’t tell me how it ends!

I am 31 years old, a stay at home mom with a high school diploma. I went to community college on and off for years but never seemed to finish. I consider myself a student of life. I love learning. I read a lot of self-help, children’s literature, poetry and articles online about healthy living, writing, parenting, etc.

Lately, I spend most of my time trying to keep my children entertained. I want to make sure they have the best summer ever! It is important for me to give my children happy memories and experiences that bring us closer as a family.

I have been blogging on and off for six years. I am here because I don’t want to quit. 

This blog is my stamp saying, “I am a writer!”

I am finally ready to claim it, even though I have no college degree or book to sell.  I am a writer because I feel compelled to write and share my passion with others.

I am here to produce something of substance. To be of service to others, while working toward fulfilling my dreams of writing and publishing books.

I believe in making your passion your purpose. I am here to support and believe in myself. And I am here to believe in you too.

This blog is for aspiring writers and mothers, who feel like they have more to offer society, people who want to better their lives, who support and encourage one another, passionate people who love to read, write, dream and have the courage to make their dreams come true.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey!

Peace & Love,

Ashley Kagaoan

  1. There is a lot of truth in the work you shared above. I wholeheartedly agree you do not need a degree nor a book to be a writer. Writing makes you a writer, nothing else. If your dream had been to write directions for shampoo bottles you would be a writer just as much if your dream had been to write the great American novel.

    Work hard and work hard to write well and I think you’ll be ahead of the game when it comes to “creat[ing] a life [you] love, one that [you] can be proud of.”

    Thank you for sharing.
