It's Time to Start Taking Influencers Seriously
I remember sitting with my dad, this past Christmas Eve. I was bracing myself for the inevitable, yet dreaded question: “So what is it you’re doing for work?”
2021 Spring and Summer Fashion Trends - What to Watch For
Trends in the fashion industry are ever changing! I first started paying attention to them when I was in my early teens. Back then mustaches and chevron patterns were ALL the rage! Style has obviously moved on from then, and trends for this coming year range from neutral and versatile to bold and colorful!
How I Got My Article to Be a Top Google Search Result
About two months ago I had hit a block in my writing. Inspiration wasn’t flowing as it had before and I found myself in a slump of creative nothingness. In my time of desperation, I began writing about any and all topics that crossed my mind. My documents folder grew thick with titles like “The Craze Behind Squishmallows” and “Who Haunts the White House.”
In the Passenger Seat of My Discovery
The concept of a hometown is a broad idea. Some people find solitude in the places they were raised, others in the places they found along the way. But for some of us, the hometown idea is not only a hard one to grasp, but a hurtful one to think about.
I Started an Instagram Blog During Quarantine - Here's How It's Going
Instagram. Love it or hate it, it’s one of the fastest growing social media platforms and most popular amongst Millennials and Gen Z’ers.

Let's Talk About Bigfoot...
I embarked on my journey towards finding the truth in the otherworldly at a young age. Most of my early years of research were spent in front of a TV, gawking at ghost hunting crews. But at 17 I set out on what was supposed to be a routine day - and my entire perspective and research method has since shifted. For the past five years, I’ve had to reimagine what the paranormal means to me and how so many people nowadays have it all wrong! Some of the most common misconceptions in the fields of the paranormal and cryptozoology surround one monster in particular - The Bigfoot.
My Top 4 Easy Day Hikes in Washington
I’ve resided in the pacific northwest for over 22 years now, more specifically, Washington state. I developed a love for the outdoors early in life, thanks in part to my dad who put my 4-year-old self into ski lessons. Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to explore the most amazing and remote parts of the state and every location leaves me in awe of the earth’s natural beauty. But for now, I wanted to cover some of the easier hikes in the state for those just looking to get into the outdoors! I’ve taken dozens - possibly hundreds - of hikes, so I had some decisions to make.
What I've Learned From My Two Years Writing on Vocal
Since I was a kid, I've always known that I wanted to be a writer of some sort. It began as the ramblings of a teenage girl, and eventually grew to a slam poetry interest in high school which then grew into an essay and article interest now in my early 20’s. When I decided to take my writing from my laptop to the world wide web, I wasn’t sure how to begin. I tried building a blog, but with little to no social media presence, it was difficult to get people to the page. I tried entering contests and pitching ideas to publications, but again, with no experience and no college degree, I was left in the dust. That is until I found Vocal!
