The Ides of March

Today is the one year anniversary of the day that changed my life.

In the last year, I have:

Become a writer
Started a blog
Talked with countless strangers all over the world who have been moved by my writing
Published a book 
Become a photographer 
Gotten ~1,600 Instagram followers (doesn't sound like a lot but, man, those are hard to get and keep)
Been featured on the Grooming Lounge's website as an expert
Bought and created: 

and, most recently, (thanks for the idea, Mean Amazon Hater)

My blog has had over 150,000 views from more than 20,000 unique visitors.

And, I have sold over 100 copies (it's a start) of a book that I didn't even plan to write.

As I said in my first blog post, The Idea, not even a year ago, "I can't tell anyone how or where to get an IDEA. But I can tell you, leave that door open, because you never know who might just walk through it and change your life."

Thank you for being on this journey with me! I am so grateful!

  1. This has been a wonderful year for you. Congratulations

  2. I look forward to every article. Keep it up, Jen, you are very interesting.

    1. Thank you so much! I am excited about the next one. It is going to be a nice story. Now I just need to sit down and write it!

  3. Was curious about this site after seeing your Tinder profile. So friendly, refreshing and open-minded, when it is easy to be defensive and cynical based on your experiences. Adds to your beauty inside and out. This single dude learned a couple of things. Congrats on the past year and wishing you more success in the future. Will definitely check on your blog going forward.

    1. Thank you so much Ken Fillmore. Your nice and supportive comment brightened my day. You put a smile on my face. Please keep reading and sharing your thoughts with me!
