In Which Ramona Tries to Pull Off an Author’s Page

All of my writer friends have author’s pages. They’re amazing! Mine is a start.

Constant Commoner

My Substack newsletter. The name comes from my badly neglected blog of the same name. This seems to work better for me and this is where you’ll find me most often now. Please sign up. No gimmicks, no sales pitches, just more of the same from me.

Some of you may know that I’m a recent widow. I need to write about that, too, so I’ve added a section called ‘Widow’s Walk’. I invite anyone to share their thoughts there. It’s not a community any of us would choose, but there’s a kind of comfort in knowing we’re not alone. It’s here.

My political blog. I’m a Josiah Bartlet Liberal and I love The West Wing. I began writing this blog on Barack Obama’s Inauguration Day in 2009. I ended it on Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day in 2021. It’s all archived because there’s still some pretty good stuff in there.

Essays on life, writing, and activism. And they pay me! I like a lot of what I write there. I hope you will, too.

Welcome to my Newsletters:

Newsletters are the thing now and this is one of two I currently host. (See below). I love the newsletter format. Because it goes mainly to my readers’ mailboxes it feels more personal than a traditional website, or even a blog.

I called it something else at first but now it’s Constant Commoner, the name I chose for a blog I kept for a long while but is now defunct. I like the name. It fits, I think. I’m an ordinary blue-collar Midwesterner with no illusions about my place in the universe, and everything I write comes from that place.

I would love to see you there. No fees, no commitment, no pressure, but if you subscribe you’ll get each post in your mailbox as they’re published. 


Writer Everlasting is my Substack newsletter for and about writers. I’m a long-time writer, teacher, and editor and I think I still have something to offer. Our community is a safe-house for writers who are serious about their craft and want to turn it into art. We’re a sometimes raucous, always professional houseful of writers with plenty to say. Come on over if that’s your thing!


How I see myself

I’ve been writing forever but started getting paid for it in the 1980s, long before the internet. I’ve been at it for a long time and some of it seems to be okay, so I’ll keep on doing it.

This is my About Page at Constant Commoner. It tells you all about me. Or as much as I want to tell. https://ramonagrigg.substack.com/about
