This blog has been in the making for a very long time. I’ve collected information, sorted out topics of interest, planned content, made a blog schedule, etc. I’ve also found a million reasons to NOT post – time, traffic, moving home, a pregnancy, a baby, work, studies (I could really go on) but I woke up this morning feeling determined. My first post…
Unlike other blogs, mine doesn’t have a single focus. It’s a tad random with bits and pieces of topics that interest me. It will be diverse in content but will NOT resemble a ‘headless chicken’
These are just a few reasons why I decided to blog…
- To share my hobbies and interests
- To meet new people who share my passion for art & craft
- To keep my folks and friends in the loop
- To test marketing strategies in social media and hopefully substantiate my degree (in progress) with data and analysis.
I will try to keep my posts relevant, short, colorful and happy.
What’s with the name of my blog?
When I decided the name – which was back in 2011 (yes! this has been cooking for quite some time now) I wanted the name to be different, catchy, easy to remember and related to me.
Shots and socks is the shortened version of ‘Tequila Shots & Psychedelic Socks’. Two things that are distinct in nature and may seem random but have meaning to me – like the content of my future blog posts.
‘Tequila Shots’ apart from their obvious use, signify an alternate approach to life throwing lemons at you. They stand for content in my blog that’s motivational & inspired.
‘Psychedelic Socks’ stand for the rebel in me. While I’m terribly color coordinated & neutral by nature (My home and wardrobe stand as proof) the one sign of dysfunction are my socks – psychedelic and never matching. This represents creativity & diversity in content of my blog.
Now that we have all of that out of the way, I’d just like to say Hi – Thank you for reading this far and hope to see you back soon. xx
