FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: January 2, 2004
New Web Site for Wives of On The Road Truckers
Kelly Livingstone, webmaster of A Truckers Wife, knows first hand how different life can be as the wife of a long distance truck driver.
“The wife, or girlfriend of an on the road long distance trucker does not have an easy life,” says Kelly. “Running a household, raising children or just dealing with being alone can be a daunting task when your man is home
and away.” As a trucker’s wife, Kelly wanted to meet other women in the same situation and offer them resources to help with this lifestyle.
ATruckersWife.com was started in September 2003 and offers resources, poems, online cards, articles and a wonderful community message board. The site is open to additions and submissions from other trucker wives.
Through the community message board,
trucker wives are able support each other and chat about their lives. One
trucker’s wife said, “Nice to have another experienced trucker's wife around!
It's very helpful to those of us who are new to the whole thing to see those of
you who have done it for years and made it work!” Another wife mentioned, “I
have found everyone to be supportive and pretty funny around here. You are sure
to get a few good belly chuckles!”
ATruckersWife.com is running a contest for
submissions of photos and articles/stories beginning January 1, 2004. Visit the
site for more information.
