As most of you know, I started this blog in the summer of 2015 with the intention of sharing my travel photos and stories, and also reconnecting with my passion for writing. If you’ve been following my journey, you know that recently that passion has blossomed and resulted in many publications and even my first chapbook!
It is for this reason that I wanted to announce my new website, www.karaknickerbocker.com. This is a more professional site where I will list my publications, upcoming readings & events, author news, etc.
I will continue to have this site for my travel blog and other experiences.
Those who have stuck past me the past year and a half, I want to extend to you the most heartfelt thank you. I never knew what your support could mean to me.
I may be taking a break from traveling, but don’t worry- you’ll find me in some corner of the universe soon!
Hi y’all, I have great news to share!
Two articles have been published this week.
Check out a past blog post that made it into Thought Catalog here.
And read on to discover What Keeps Us, published on Odyssey Online. I’ll be posting weekly articles there as well. Please be sure to comment and share! I’d love to hear from you.
Thanks for following! Stay tuned for what I have up my sleeve for next time;)
Whoa. Exactly one year ago I created From This Side of the Sun. I had zero clue how to use WordPress, let alone how to blog, and no idea what would happen once I let this baby out into the world. All I knew is that I had to do it. I had to create an outlet for my voice.
Since then, it’s been nothing short of an incredible adventure in itself, and my saving grace in its own right. I’ve been able to share my stories of traveling, my struggles and accomplishments with running, my poetry, and even opened up about my health issues. I’ve written about my passions and my most embarrassing moments, from wild adventures to every day life. I have connected with so many individuals across the country, and surprisingly enough, this blog has brought me even closer to those already here at home.
So a massive THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart, for following along these past 365 days, being an instrumental part of my continuous growth and support of strength, and letting me share my world with you.
New here? I got ya covered. Here’s a snapshot of some of my favorite memories (both old & new) of posts from August 2015-now. Time really does fly when you’re having fun, huh?
Flying out from Chicago.
Spoonbridge & Cherry.
Can’t wait to see what’s next!
