Thank you for reading the Paddock Post (which used to be called It’s As Simple As That)- an informational website devoted to a variety of topics: food, innovative products, books, culture, education, travel, and more.
The products I write about have been purchased – not given to me – and I don’t receive anything from vendors or publishers whose products I endorse. There are many small businesses making excellent products and so I pass along this information.
Food is fabulous and since it’s such a big part of all our lives, the making, eating, and enjoyment of sustenance is of endless interest to me – especially when the making part isn’t complicated. Through the years, the site has evolved to a more vegan centered focus in line with my own personal journey.
Books of all types – fiction, non-fiction, young adult, and children’s – are a passion of mine. There are so many talented writers who have written exceptional books and because there are few things I enjoy more than a great book and having the time to read, I can’t help but write about books.
Traveling is an adventure and after spending nearly a decade living in Europe, many people ask me what to see and do,and so I pass along the information I learned – primarily what to see, where to eat, and what to do with kids.
And, finally there are a variety of other topics I find infinitely entertaining: running, sports, current events, movies, education, health, and especially, my family, friends, and pets. They provide me with both serious and humorous topics to write about although I do try to protect their privacy by not writing too much about them.
On the personal side, my name is Anne Paddock. After graduating from college, I worked for 5 years, realized I didn’t know too much so I took the GMAT, quit work and went back to school, earning my MBA from Duke University. I went into banking and stayed in that field for 12 years before moving to Europe. Now back in the States with my family, I hope to share what I find, read, and learn through this site.
It’s As Simple As That.
