A native Texan, I live a heartbeat north of Dallas in Plano, Texas with my husband, three kiddos and two four-legged dogs where one thinks she’s human and the other thinks she’s a cat.

Meryl first joined the Internet pre-revolution in 1992 with Internet in a Box.

Why the name

I racked my brain to come up with a name that would stick. Alas, nothing came. Ironically, I love to read about names and the meanings behind them. I’m even a professional namer! Yet, I couldn’t name this electronic baby.

I never had a nickname, a big hobby or a way for making up a creative name using my name. For example: If your last name was Boot, then a good Web name would be “Reboot.” Although I had a handle from my BBS (pre-Internet) days, I was embarrassed for ever having used it. Considering “meryl” is so uncommon considering the lifetime of misspellings and mispronunciations, I used it thinking a better name would come later. No brilliant idea ever came. So, meryl stuck.

Not So Vital Info

Bio: The cool version

I’ve been hanging out on the pre-Internet aka BBS since 1986. (I appear in BBS: The Documentary, which landed me my own page. Color me shocked.) I met the Internet in 1993. In digital years, that would be the 1800s. I fell in love with it at first text.

I’ve written for anything and everything relating to Web design, technology, content marketing, writing, automotive and buffaloes (not kidding).

I’m the president, CEO, CIO, CMO, CFO and founder of, writing, editing, digital marketing, content marketing, email marketing, social media, tech fixer-upper, and all that extra stuff services.

I’ve blogged about living life as a deaf person. You can find this southpaw in the Lone Star State … not wearing 10-gallon hats.
