Congratulations to our newest featured blogger, Cassie!

In her own words:

I started blogging… because I thought that’s how you get a book deal. I’m still waiting.

I’m known for… my hawk-eyed editing skills, indecision, and a former Bon Jovi obsession. That will follow me around for the rest of my life.

I’m working on… a site redesign. It’s time to take things up a notch, and I’m hoping to reveal the new look in the coming weeks!

I’m currently addicted to… my new DSLR. Having the freedom to take tons of bad shots is making me a better photographer. Oddly enough, having it has also made me understand the quirks of my film camera better, too.

I find joy… in nice emails/exchanges with bloggers and readers. I used to be the kind of person who says “I hate people” (and I do, in the general sense), but they’ve made it really hard to maintain that mindset because of how awesome they are. Stop it, you guys–you’re making me question everything I once believed.

My favorite plugin/widget… is Editorial Calendar. My recent guest post series had made for a huge increase in the amount of content I have to organize, and it’s nice to be able to drag and drop all of my drafts where I need them on the schedule.

I can’t do without… puppies. I could never live in a world without puppies.

I’m most creative… when I should be going to bed. Seriously, why do I have, like, five blog post ideas when my eyes are shot and it’s 1 a.m.?

I admire… fearless, honest writing. It’s easy to fall into the trap of only sharing the best sides of ourselves, but that’s so… boring. I need a story. I need a voice. I need authenticity. There’s a lot of that going around in these parts on 20sb, and it’s a pleasure to read.

1) Yay Cassie!  Congrats.
 
2) I also often say that I hate people.  I think the reality is “I hate most people IRL” because I tolerate them much better through a computer screen/blog, haha.

@Delightfully Awkward Brittany Thanks, Brittany! :) Yeah, it’s usually people at the grocery store, other drivers in traffic, and ignorant douchebags I hate. Luckily, there are lots of wonderful people to balance out the shitty folk.
