Friends, family, unicorns. Welcome to my little ol’ blog.
(pssst. You should have figured that one out from the title. But if you didn’t, don’t worry your pretty little balayage ’bout it. Just raise your eyebrows and tap your nose once whenever I’m moving a little too quick for you and I promise to explain it super nice and easy in these little bracket things. Yunno. Just like this.)
You may remember me from such blogs as Emma Shot This Photo and the MYOB Pulse. (oh come on. Who doesn’t like a little bit of accounting blogging with their morning coffee? Anyone? *crickets* Whatever punks, I was Editor in Chief and you fools do not know what you are missing.)
This is my latest venture. It’s been one of those ‘gonna do it eventually’ things on my life goals list since, oh about September 1997, but it’s the incessant insistence of the lovely lass who has the pleasure/bad luck of sitting next to me for around 40 hours per week that ‘you should so start a blog’ that finally gave me the motivation to put pen to paper. (actually, fingers to keyboard but that sounds slightly, uh, inappropriate….)
First up, full disclosure. (because after four or so paragraphs we’re totes friends now, and you should definitely tell your friends all your dirty little secrets.) I currently work for Nike. They pay me to be their resident Social Media nerd, and so sometimes I might get a little carried away gushing over how oh-so-pretty-the-new-sky-high-dunks-are. You’ll get used to it.
And if you don’t, quite frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn. Go and start your own Nike free blog. (what a boring, dull place that part of the interwebs would be #justsaying)
But here’s the thing. Social media nerd – that’s not just who I am. I write. I yoga. I take photos. I sing in the shower and I only buy black and white bed linen because I’m convinced it makes me classy and I couldn’t keep a pot plant alive if my life depended on it. I cook, I travel, I take a lot of photos. I have opinions. Oh boy, do I have a whole lotta opinions. I buy too many shoes and I’m obsessed with the labels on bottles and I own more skinny little gold rings than one lady will ever need in one life time.
So here’s a little insight into my life behind the MacBook Pro. All my adventures, far too many photos of my pooch and the things I’ve learned along the way. (which is mostly: don’t buy jeans a size too small no matter how discounted they are because you’ll never give up ice cream long enough to fit your butt into them, and tequila shooters are always a bad idea.) Strap yourself in, because while I can’t promise to always make complete sense, what I can promise is that this is going to be one heck of a fun ride.
*insert witty and hilarious sign off that will eventually become my signature quote*
Your friend, Em x
