Karen Ballum is a freelance writer, editor and community moderator. When asked in a job interview what gets her out of bed in the morning she replied, "Words." She is BlogHer.com Community Moderator which means she spends her days reading, promoting other women's words and forgetting to write on her own blog Sassymonkey.ca. She lives in Ottawa with her husband and cat. They may, or may not, be fake.
