December Blogger Spotlight: Me

Welcome to my series in which I spotlight one of my followers. I’ve always had a deep fascination with people: how they became who they are, the struggles they won, and the hard lessons they learned over time. All of these scars and stories make up a person’s life. While I think it’s important to reflect on your own journey, it is also equally important to hear other voices and see diverse perspectives. In this series, the spotlighted blogger will be able to tell their story through curated questions I’ve asked of them.

Actually, this month’s blogger spotlight will be Continue reading

November Blogger Spotlight

Welcome to my series in which I spotlight one of my followers. I’ve always had a deep fascination with people: how they became who they are, the struggles they won, and the hard lessons they learned over time. All of these scars and stories make up a person’s life. While I think it’s important to reflect on your own journey, it is also equally important to hear other voices and see diverse perspectives. In this series, the spotlighted blogger will be able to tell their story through curated questions I’ve asked of them.

November’s feature blogger has been a regular and consistent supporter of my blog and I wanted to show some love back! Her blog is about thinking out of the box, and answering the questions you never realized were questions, and how to view the world when you have a few miles under your hood. She loves interacting with a community, sharing ideas and thoughts. 

Without further ado, I introduce you to Continue reading

October Blogger Spotlight

Welcome to my series in which I spotlight one of my followers. I’ve always had a deep fascination with people: how they became who they are, the struggles they won, and the hard lessons they learned over time. All of these scars and stories make up a person’s life. While I think it’s important to reflect on your own journey, it is also equally important to hear other voices and see diverse perspectives. In this series, the spotlighted blogger will be able to tell their story through curated questions I’ve asked of them.

October’s blogger feature is someone I greatly admire for her insight and candor. I love how she unabashedly expresses herself through her unique perspective. She is a prolific writer whose work has been featured in Chicken Soup for the Soul: I’m Speaking Now (Black Women Share their Truth in 101 Stories of Love, Courage and Hope), The South Florida Times, The Pulp, and For Harriet. Her writing touches on a range of topics including mental health, marriage, aging, self-worth, social justice, familial connections, and writing advice (to just name a few). 

Without further ado, I introduce you to Kathy Garland from the blog “Kwoted.” Continue reading

September Blogger Spotlight

Welcome to my series in which I spotlight one of my followers. I’ve always had a deep fascination with people: how they became who they are, the struggles they won, and the hard lessons they learned over time. All of these scars and stories make up a person’s life. While I think it’s important to reflect on your own journey, it is also equally important to hear other voices and see diverse perspectives. In this series, the spotlighted blogger will be able to tell their story through curated questions I’ve asked of them.

You meet a ton of bloggers in this sphere, but a small few stand out. The blogger that I chose to spotlight in September is one of them. Everyone has their own reasons for writing or sharing their life story. She is no different. Her passion for sharing her stories and photography with the world is inspiring and contagious. If you ask her, she will say she’s living her dream but I would argue that she’s probably living a lot of other people’s dreams of picking up, leaving the city, and living that quaint life on a farm! She’ll also be the first to tell you it wasn’t without a ton of work and elbow grease, but it is equally rewarding in the end.

This is probably the longest of these features in this series thus far and truthfully, it was much longer than this. I found all of her answers so thoughtful and intriguing so I did my best to cut it down into a digestible post. This was the final product, I hope I did her life story justice (but all the more reason to check her out for yourself)!

Without further ado, I introduce you to Continue reading
