Bye-bye blogger virginity: let the adventure begin

Talk about late to the party. This is my very first blog post! Surprising for a PR pro, you say? …don’t judge!

Today was my third day on-the-job with the ADK Chamber. To take you back to the beginning (yes, that was just three days ago)… I confidently strode down the sidewalk to my new office Monday morning, glanced down and noticed… I was wearing mismatched boots. Seriously. How does this happen? I mean, for how many years have I been getting myself dressed and booted without an error of this epic proportion?

…this time just for fun!

Using a phrase coined by my dear friend Kraig Kleeman, “Head on is dead on“, I snapped a picture of my snafu and made the world of social media aware. On Day Two, I wore these (see 2nd pic)… just for fun. Choice is good. So is laughing in spite of yourself.

Bye bye blogger virginity. Welcome to The You Evolution™, where my aim is to challenge each one of us to embrace our own unique journey so we may contagiously enjoy community and relationship with each other. …….Ready?

    Welcome to the blog world… i started about a year ago, but only got “serious” a few months ago.. it’s a pain in the arse but it’s also fun and kind of addicting…

      Thank you, Glen… DEF getting the “addicting” piece right now! Got any suggestions for ways I can better promote my blog? Love!

    Hi Donna!

    Of all the people I’ve ever known, you would make the best blogger. You’re such a gregarious person, and your love for life and everything living is so inspiring. The best of luck with your ventures!

    PS: At least both of your shoes were black. lol

    • Donna Smaldone says:

      Haha… believe it or not, Michele… one was black and one was brown! But you’re right, the most ridiculous part was the mismatched toe shapes! Too funny! Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement. Luvya! xo

  3. I saw your virgin blog and just had to be the first person to comment on it for real (Mr Anonymous doesn’t count does it?).

    This whole story cracked me up! Nice to know that people do this stuff in real life, not just in movies and on TV.

    Happy blogging!

      What do you mean Mr. Anon doesn’t count! Whew… gain some sensitivity, Andrew! Thanks for the comment. Love blogging thus far!
