Introducing Helen from Hel On Heels.
What made you decide to start blogging?
I had a blog in college, but I didn’t keep up with it–posted once
every few months and never really knew what blogging was about. I
started again after I was asked to come speak to college seniors about
finding a job and what to expect when you have one. I wrote a post to
accompany my talk, remembered how much I liked blogging and decided to
start again. I’m new to the professional world, living on my own for
the first time, and taking life one day at a time. I blog about the
things I figure out along the way.
How is life in Atlanta?
It’s wonderful! I lived in the Atlanta area growing up, but I went to
college in a teeny-tiny little town. Seriously, it is miniature.
BONUS: Honey Boo Boo lives there and photobombed my senior pictures.
Needless to say, after four years of small town life, I couldn’t wait
to get back to the hustle and bustle. Atlanta is such a fun city and
we have great restaurants. There is always something exciting going on
here. I even saw Ben Affleck filming a movie at the laundromat near my
house the other day. I wasn’t actually at the laundromat since I have
a washer/dryer in my apartment…but when I heard he was filming, I
decided to make a detour.
I wear so many different hats working at a non-profit, which is a
great way to gain experiences in a lot of different areas quickly.
Plus, I work with kids, so that’s always entertaining. I get a lot of
laughs from the hilarious things they say.
How would you describe your blog in three words?
Food, Fashion, Fitness, and Finesse. Ok, I cheated and used four, but
those are the words I use to describe my blog to other people. Finesse
is anything that doesn’t fit into the first three categories, but I
liked the alliteration.
What is a favorite post you’ve written recently?
I think my favorite post I’ve written recently is “Having
a Hard Last Name.” My last name is really complicated to pronounce
and actually means “little yellow weed.” I wrote this post exploring
the pros and cons of having a difficult last name.
