Welcome to A Broad View!

A newsletter that explores the experience of being a woman in the 21st century with personal essays + conversations surrounding religion, sexuality, love, marriage, divorce, motherhood, societal constructs, non-monogamy, aging, mental illness, mindfulness and spirituality.

I’m the broad with a view.

My name is Monica Danielle. I am a multimedia journalist and freelance writer. You can find my work in The Washington Post, HuffPost, ABC News, AccuWeather and various other online publications.

I’ve spent decades working in TV news, including live producing and writing for ABC7 Eyewitness News in New York City, World News Now, Good Morning America and the AccuWeather Network.

You can dig into my personal essays from the past twenty years on my now retired blog. On A Broad View I write with honesty about my recovery from Mormonism and its lingering effects, marriage, motherhood, sexuality, navigating a high-conflict divorce, falling in love again, non-monogamy, womanhood and all that entails, aging, dealing with a late in life Borderline Personality Disorder diagnosis and more.

A Broad View is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.

Why pay for a subscription if your newsletter is free?

For $5 a month, you will have access to all posts. As someone raised by a single mom who worked several minimum wage jobs and relied on food stamps to keep 4 kids in food, I still struggle with financial trauma.

Although the money from A Broad View helps pay my bills, I don’t want your financial situation to keep you from reading and commenting. I removed the paywall because I want “free” subscribers to have access to the same content as “paid” subscribers.

If you can pay to read, I am endlessly grateful for your support of my work, but if you can’t, you are still invited to the party and thoughtful conversation in the comments is payment enough!

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE for your financial and emotional support over the years of my online writing career, it means everything to me.

Once subscribed, you won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every newsletter goes directly to your inbox. I’m so glad you’re here! Let’s deconstruct some societal conventions and structures together!
