It’s A Bird…it’s A Plane… Naah, It’s Just Me

High above the bustling metropolis of Ocheyedan, a lone figure casts a silhouette against the moon’s eerie glow. An Iowa breeze causes a cape to ripple as the masked hero keeps watch over the citizens below. She is none other than Power Femme, protector of the underdog, guardian of the downtrodden…

Meanwhile, back in reality, a woman sits in front of a computer screen, writing a blog for the first time in her new position as reporter for the Daily Globe.

Greetings and salutations! I am Robin Baumgarn, and I’m the newest addition to the Daily Globe writing staff. I will be covering both education and news in northwest Iowa. I am a native of Lexington, Kentucky and have lived here now for almost six years.

I live with my husband, Ryan, and our adopted four-legged children: Missy, Samwise and Fidget. I have a small jewelry business with my best friend of 15 years, Beccie, called Dovesland Creations. We travel all around Iowa and Minnesota peddling our wares at various festivals and online at

In my spare time, I enjoy video games, online roleplaying, spending time with family and friends, cross-stitching and in general most things nerdy. I must confess, I can’t tell you who shot first, Han or Greedo. But, if you want to debate who played the better Dumbledore or why the Lord of The Rings trilogy was more than just three movies of people walking, I’m your girl.

As of late, I’ve taken a trip back to my youth and started watching WWE again. Yes, I know it is fake, but it provides mindless background fodder while I am playing a game. That is until Roman Reigns enters the ring then the rest of the world disappears for a few minutes while I swoon.

I find myself taking those strolls back to yesteryear more and more. Perhaps it is because this year marks 15 years since I graduated high school.  It could be I’m not ready to admit I am a grown-up or that my favorite grunge music is now on the oldies station. But I digress.

For now, rest easy Daily Globe subscribers, Power Femme is always watching…
