Katie Hinderer

Katie Hinderer is a freelance writer and social media enthusiast. She holds a degree in Journalism from Marquette University. Over the years she has transitioned from traditional publishing to online writing. To be honest, she owns too many social media accounts and posts frequently to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. After years of 9-5 writing in New York, Katie transitioned to freelance writing. Desks are too confining. She now contributes to a number of online publications and maintains a style blog at www.ModlyChic.com.

Texting to save lives

We read and hear enough about the disastrous effect of text messaging. Of course there are those that text and drive (I’ll admit to being guilty of this).
