Good Morning Flysters. It’s been a busy month in the world of long john wearing red heads between the launch of Blogger Interactive, getting settled in to my new home, and painting Jack’s fingernails. But today I am sharing with you a few other things that have been keeping me busy.
Today marks my very first article published on the EXP Adventures blog which coincides with my first vlogging debut on The Indie Chick’s YouTube channel. I think I just knocked regular YouTube Tuesday all the way into next Monday.
If you aren’t familiar with these sites, here is your chance to not only check out these outstanding sites, but support your girl at the same time.
I’ve been lucky enough to be in correspondence with the founder of EXP Adventures for about a year now, from whom I have received incredible support, advice, and motivation. So my excitement level about being included in the EXP group of writers is topping that of my upcoming birthday celebrations… for the next five years.
EXP is all about providing daring travelers with challenging and culturally rich experiences. They not only offer their busy viewers the opportunity for truly adventurous, yet attainable travels, but also bring in interested parties with a warm embrace of insight. The Adventures Blog provides vivid views of the all-encompassing EXP travels accompanied by well written, informative, and entertaining articles that resonate with its audacious readers. Please head on over to read my article on staying connected during travels entitled Destination WiFi Wasteland.
Many of you are already familiar with The Indie Chicks. How could you not be? IC is the sexy offspring of some of the internet’s best woman super heroes, not to mention the most devoted blog supporters out there. I’ve been a contributor there for almost a year now, but this will be my first comedy video on their YouTube channel. Watch How to Move Long Distance below!
Don’t think that all of the fun is over after today either. I’ve added a special new widget in the sidebar where you can see what is coming up on 25toFly. So many first are ahead, and I am gladly letting you all watch me giving up my V card. I hope you enjoy it Flysters. It will certainly be a month to remember.

So when I began writing this blog, one of my goals was to try new things this year. I can’t change the fact that I do not yet have the resources to make the move I want, the way I want just yet. So how do I pass the time? I signed up today to embarrass myself at the Color Run this year in New Olreans November 17th. Never have I participated in any kind of run (unless you count running from frogs). Running is not exactly my favorite physical activity, so it will also be a bit of a challenge. Although the race itself is laid back, and you don’t have to run, I’d like to attempt completing the whole thing without having to drop the pace. It is 3.1 miles of “color madness” and the final product is a human canvas turned multicolored splattered masterpiece by volunteers, sponsors and staff. Luckily for me, you can join teams so you don’t have to awkwardly run alone. Who am I kidding, I run like a gazelle. The bonus? After you become the next Pollock look-alike, you can go unwind over on Bourbon street. Read the rest of this entry
Long time no see. Now that I have gotten a split second to exhale for the first time in a week, here I present all the wonderful pictures I took this weekend at Festival International de Louisiane (please note the extreme sarcasm). I have always generally failed at taking pictures of anything anywhere, let alone at an interesting event I will want to remember and share with others. I could venture to the moon and back ending up with nothing to show but a few pictures containing half faces and blurred nothingness.
Not only was I so busy this past week that I had to put the blog in time out, but I was even unsuccessful at documenting my weekend via enchanting photos to make up for it. Typical. This failure happened, embarrassingly enough, also due to
tequila technical difficulties. Unfortunately, I temporarily lost the ability to tell whether my Iphone camera was in picture or video mode, so I basically ended up with these photos below… and a bunch of three-second videos of me posing awkwardly waiting for a flash that never came. Lovely.
I also threw in a picture of the most peculiar Diet Coke box I have ever seen, and a picture of me after attempt to coloring my hair “dark red blond” flying solo. Should I stick to hiring the professionals? I feel a bit… little mermaid-ish.
