Jenny Eckton was born and raised in New York, and at age 19 moved to Utah to be in a band with some friends. She’s been blogging since 2005 at formerlyphread.com, and has enjoyed guest-blogging on other sites, as well as presenting at conferences, including BlogHer (2011), Story@Home (2012), and evo (2012). Jenny is honored to have been one of 31 bloggers chosen to participate in the United Nations Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign’s blog relay (#Blogust) which was able to raise over $200,000 for life-saving vaccines for over 10,000 children all over the world. In October, 2012, Jenny traveled to Uganda as a Shot@Life Delegate and was able to see the results of those fundraising efforts as children and families received the vaccines and health care they so desperately need. Jenny and her husband Darin have been married for over 15 years, live in Provo, Utah, and have six children (5 Alive, 1 in Heaven). Jenny enjoys music, triathlons, Zumba, and traveling.
