James C. Marshall

Hi there! I’m James. I’m from the Atlanta, Georgia area with a background in business management & related. These days I work more as a consultant and enjoy a bit more free time to work on reading, learning, and of course…more projects at home!

I’ve been an amateur writer for a number of years but more recently decided to put together a website that reflects what I’ve learned about fixing things, solving problems (or messes!) around the house, and sharing that with others.

Anita Pereira

Anita is a marketing professional by trade and has an interest in home decorating, do-it-yourself (DIY) crafts, and natural recipes or natural solutions to common everyday home issues. Anita is also a writer and enjoys sharing helpful articles with people out there just like you!

She especially enjoys using essential oils, vinegar, and common everyday things to keep a home fresh and clean. 

What the site is all about

How to put up garage shelves example image

An example of the kind of topics we love to help with: “How to put up garage shelves on the cheap.” There are a TON of questions out there, and MILLIONS of people looking for answers. I hope Home Upward can help you find answers!

I found myself searching for answers to many questions for home topics. I’m also a guy who’s into projects at home and I ran into problems when looking for answers fairly often.

Sadly, it turns out that the internet isn’t always a great source of help. Lots of topics are considered “not important enough” to the big websites out there. Even worse, some people put out lousy or even wrong info. Good grief!

It seemed to me like someone needed to start a good site to help others just like you and I find the answers we need.

It’s about what people are looking for help with

I sort through tons of questions & answers on the internet then use those as ideas for new articles to help you. I enjoy writing good articles – although it takes time & effort to do it right.

Together we work to help you take your home upward and make it better than ever.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to reach out if you have questions, topic ideas, or other things on your mind.

Have a great day!
