INTRODUCING THE CULTURED COW…AGAIN

It’s been more than five months since I posted anything here and it feels so good to be back!

I had to take a step back to figure out what I wanted to do with this space. I was struggling a little and was posting just because I thought I should. Beyond the new look (which I hope you love as much as I do) I want to devote more time to creating content that really says something, that speaks to you – and to me. Content that inspires and elevates and teaches; that requires intentionality and more of me to create.

I love to write, to share my thoughts and experiences, to engage with you, and to use my content and platform to support small businesses, local businesses and build a community. I’ve been doing a lot of that on Instagram, now I want to do more of it here.

ASK ME ANYTHING – GET TO KNOW ME

A few weeks ago I asked you guys to ask me anything on Instagram, because I figured it would be a good way to get those of you who are relatively new to The Cultured Cow to learn more about me. I wasn’t prepared for the number of questions I received, so I did the only decent thing: I decided to make it a monthly feature on the website so I could answer more of your questions more frequently.

So at the beginning of each month, I’ll put up a questions sticker on Instagram stories inviting you to ask me anything. It could be themed, it could be random, but I’ll select 15-20 questions and answer them as honestly as I can here. This is basically co-curated content, which is super exciting because I have no idea how it’ll go or what you’ll ask me!

Here goes, part one, Ask Me Anything.

SHELVE IT

I’ve had a shitty couple of weeks, and I feel like curling up in bed and only getting out for food. In fact I’ve just had a drink to calm myself down after a session of bawling my eyes out because I feel so…overwhelmed by everything, mostly a string of bad decisions that I’m paying for now.

‘TIS THE SEASON TO CELEBRATE SOMETHING AFRICAN

I can’t believe 2020 is over, can you? It feels like just the other day I was struggling to make it to work on time, trying to tiptoe into our small office in heels. Now I just wear leggings or shorts and a shirt and work from our dining table. My feet must be flatter from being in full contact with the ground 24-7 (I’m already horribly flat-footed), my heels are gathering dust and I’m pretty sure I’ve forgotten how to walk gracefully in them. But we move, and we look forward to a better year, because 2021 can’t be as bad as 2020 has been, right?
