You might already know that I decided to host a giveaway to celebrate my blog’s first birthday. Woo hoo! Leslie Jackson, CEO of And Inspirations supplied the prizes for the winner. Isn’t she the sweetest?!
All in Fun
The Quirk Life is one year old. Wow!
I remember when I started thinking about doing this. I needed my own platform. I’d written for businesses and magazines but the process was starting to exhaust me. I always had so much to share but was boxed into a certain writing style or topic when writing for other people. I’d had enough.
I used to go out all the time in my early 20’s. Seriously ALL THE TIME. Hang out all night and still be at work by 8 AM – not a problem at all. Drive 3 hours just to party with my friends at their college – no biggie. I didn’t even buy groceries because I was on the go so much. Looking back on it I couldn’t even imagine living that way now. I never cared about the domestic side of life. Cook and clean? That was for my grandmother’s generation. I wanted to travel, dance, build memories with my friends, play in my makeup, get tattoos and get pierced. Glad I got all that out of my system!
There I was minding my own business looking for comforter sets and Brazilian wax coupons when it popped up…
A Groupon deal to a Janis Joplin show at the Fox Theater. Whoa! I got so excited. Say whaaat, you didn’t know I loved me some Janis? I do! The first song I heard by her was Mercedes Benz. I was fresh out of high school and getting paid to transfer some music between devices for a CEO I knew. I was so focused on the job itself but at one moment it dawned on me to actually listen to some of the music. And that’s when I heard that husky voice and I was blown away. A white girl who could sing it all.
I have to thank you again and again for letting me touch your life through this little blog. It’s great to be able to connect with so many people and businesses from all over.
However, today is about you! I’ve been getting questions about a few different topics and I’m working on blog posts to answer them. In the meantime I want to encourage you to keep sending questions. It can be about anything. If I have an answer you’ll get it!
I mentioned before that this blog isn’t all about me. You play an important role and this is a community. Feel free to drop questions in the comments below or email me.
