“Write drunk, edit sober”

Tuesday, November 27, 2012



A little over two years and four blogs later, I’ve decided enough is enough. I’m ready to blog what I want, what I feel, what I LOVE!!

For some reason I’ve always thought a blog and its title/content/expression needs to be on one topic; on one subject. Cohesive and consistent. But you know what, I’m over that thought.

I’ve had a total of four blogs now: one highlighting events, one highlighting my social media experience, one about my love for baking and my most successful blog that documented my training for my first marathon. 

This blog, my most recent, I’m going to be keeping it and sticking with it. I named it “Take Your Pic” for a reason – and that is exactly what I am going to be doing. I’m going to take MY pic(k) and write about what I love, what I enjoy, what I want to share, WHAT I FEEL.

A few months ago I came across the Ernest Hemingway quote “Write drunk, edit sober.” The day I read that quote, it really did change my life. I’m not going to go into my interpretation of this quote, but from experience (sad to admit) you usually say what you mean when you’re drunk. So here I am, drinking away on that funny cool aid!  

After talking over dinner with my friend Jessica Lawlor - who has an INCREDIBLE blog by the way – she said something to me that I took to heart. She said “You know what, I write about what I want. If people want to read it, GREAT, if not, they can always click off the page. It’s my blog and I’m going to do what I want.” AMEN SISTER.

So here I am, making a pledge today that this blog is going to have a bit of a transformation and HOPEFULLY more content, more frequently. I’m a true believer to trust your gut and that is something I should have done almost two years ago. For content (which is what I ORIGINALLY wanted to do) I’m a big lover of themed days: Mission Monday, Tunes Tuesday, Website Wednesday, Text Thursday and Fun Friday. (Why didn’t I just do this from the start, I’m not too sure.)

Of course there will be random posts, missed entries, lame weeks and completely random stuff on here, but so what, that’s who I am – LA DOLCE VITA!

Thanks to my bff Ashley for taking the photo, here I am getting my "La Dolce Vita" tattoo back in September 2010 in Baltimore. It's one of five tattoos I have. Did you know I have that many?!?!  SURPRISE! 

I’m ready for the new ride, the new feel, the new taste of expressing who I really am and what I really love to blog about. 

I will leave it up to you: “Take Your Pic” at what you want to read.
