On June 1st, 2005 I started a little website called Sarah and the Goon Squad. My first post is loaded with bad grammar. It sounds like every bad blog you have ever read and assures you that it will probably be my first and last post.
Almost 1800 posts later (and that is just on this site, since then I have written for at least 20 other websites) I am still here.
Life takes you in crazy directions. Impulsively signing up for that blogspot blog changed my life. I have gone places I never would have been, I have met amazing people and been given really cool opportunities. I have been in the photo pit at a rock festival, I attended a WNBA draft, I met John and Roger Taylor, I ate at The French Laundry, I have spoken on panels all over the country, I cooked with some underprivileged little kids and a Top Chef, I drove across the United States, I edited posts that were written by Ronnie Lott and I got to go to The Winter Classic. I have made a lot of very talented friends. I have become a writer.
You don’t have to buy me anything for my birthday/anniversary, but I would love it if you would send me some more pictures to add to my flickr set.
Thanks for reading. I can’t imagine that I would have kept this up if it weren’t for you guys.
