My favorite Momstyle forums: Shop smart and save money, recipes, women's health and Community of Hope for cancer survivors. I am a three-year breast cancer survivor and it is nice to have a community of support.

I use the internet most for: Blogging, microblogging, finding great deals, coupons, freebies, and I use it to stay in touch with friends and family.

I got my first e-mail account: We bought our first home computer about 14 years ago. I knew nothing about computers, e-mails or surfing the net at that time. My husband set up the account for me to communicate with my sister overseas.

Other sites I love to visit: My favorite website is I spend quite a bit of time on, and is a favorite for me too.

I knew I was computer proficient the first time I: learned how to cut-and-paste and open and send an attachment. It took me awhile, I have never been technologically savvy.

My favorite thing about living in Central Ohio: It has so many wonderful things to do, like the Broadway Series, fabulous shopping, restaurants, COSI, concerts, Ohio State University, professional hockey and soccer. Central Ohio has it all.

One thing I would change about living here: The weather. I am not a fan of the cold and icy winters.
