life, levity, & the pursuit of natural

This week’s throwback is to one of my very first blogger awards! Since then, my art has become my main pursuit and my music has become a welcome hobby. ¡Todavía estoy aprendo español!

Three Things About Me:

  1. I hate bananas–the cold mushy texture, the afterthought of a flavor. I rebuke it. Give me fried plantain any day! I can’t remember ever liking bananas, but I do remember many a standoff as a child refusing to eat my “fruits”.
  2. I’m an aspiring music producer. I’ve had an on-again off-again love affair with the piano since preschool. Today, I’m pursuing a career in music production.
  3. “I’m currently learning Spanish”…has been a perennial saying of mine for the past two years.

Thank You: 100 Followers


Thank You 100 Followers

This one just snuck up on me. It wasn’t that long ago I did my last follower appreciation post, and earlier this month WordPress notified me that I reached 100 followers.

If you are one of the people that made this happen, thank you! We all know how it gets with blogging–you can sometimes feel like a lost signal in a sea of noise. But it is a good feeling to know that in some small measure your signal was received. A single subscriber,  a single comment, and even a single like can be gratifying.

I’m especially grateful for everyone who enjoyed my content enough to share it on other platforms and to those who took the recent survey on illustration and blogging.

The Shoutouts

And now the best part! A very special thanks to the subscribers featured above. Each of them have received full-sized portraits. I admire their depth, intelligence, wit and honesty, and they have all encouraged me to see the beauty in my individuality.

Please check out their sites and follow them on their social media platforms for content on writing, editing, mental health, photography, poetry, and of course natural hair.

If you’re a fan of The Pursuit, make it official and subscribe!  Comment, like this post, and share. You can also follow me on my other platforms. Links in the sidebar.
