Hello and welcome to my blog, you can call me MJ. This is my first foray into the world of blogging and at 50, well I am in a learning curve. I have been around computers since computer screens were 8 inches big, had a green screen with a blinking green cursor bar and had to be booted up with a DOS disk, but blogging is still new to me so please be patient while I work out the kinks. Feedback in the form of comments would be most helpful. I am open to suggestions.
My blog was born on August 21, 2015, and was created out of the things I love and care about so it will be about family, beauty (inner and outer) makeup reviews and tips (love these), subscription box reviews (love these too), lifestyle topics, clothing (minimalist), footwear reviews (I have small feet) so, how they fit, the quality and durability. I also intend to include the weird and odd things I find, like my blog title, mjsoddballblog, I like all things odd. I am full of useless trivia so there may be days I include that too.
I will post pictures of everything I review, lots and lots of pictures and I will do color swatches on me. I am kind of a warm neutral olive/tan complexion so my foundations and foundation reviews will be geared towards that end of the spectrum, but all other products are fair game.
I am by no means a food critic, a fitness guru, not an extreme sports/adrenaline junkie. I like my food simple, I’m from a small southern city, we like our food comforting and straight forward, my fitness simple (thank you Planet Fitness) and no adrenaline unless something is chasing me and about to eat me.
I can tell you what you will not see, you will not see a banner that takes up half my page and follows you down as you go. There will not be those weird floating link blocks, no auto play videos either. Flashy annoying adds that will give you a seizure, nope not here. I will try and have fast load pages that don’t take forever. In other words, make a site that is easy to navigate and appealing.
In closing, thank you for taking the time to visit me and my blog, and by all means please contact me via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, in the comments section, Twitter or Facebook or tag me on Instagram at #mjsoddballblog if there is something you think I need to see. Also, if there is something you want me to write about, please ask and I will do my best to answer that request. I am always open to new ideas. I am an introverted obsessive compulsive so when a new idea catches my attention I tend to get a little carried away.
Product disclaimer: All reviews are done by me and are of my own creation. I am not affiliated with any products I review. Everything you see on here I have purchased myself and these are not paid reviews, obviously, because some are not so stellar. So there we go, this is my disclaimer.
