So about a year after I first learned about them, and 6 months after the sent me a short e-mail asking me basic questions, I finally replied and joined the Chicago Blogger Network!

Procrastination for the win!

Seriously though, I’m trying to get better about being a functioning, organized adult.  Though judging by the current state of my condo the success of that goal is, um, debatable.

Anyway, I’m really excited to participate in the events that the CBN organizes.  I’ve been following them on tumblr and facebook for a while and they’re always cooking up something fun and it looks like a great way to meet other bloggers.  If you’re a Chicago Blogger you can check them out here.


Bloggers Block

How can I have bloggers block when I haven’t written anything yet?  I think it’s mostly that I’m over thinking things and wanting to find the “perfect” way to start this blog which, of course, I’ll never find so I guess I’ll just start with the basics.

I’m Maggie, I was born and raised in Chicago though I’ve also lived in Nashville, Boulder, Denver, and London.  I used to be a teacher but now I’m an entrepreneur running my own bridal lingerie and accessory company which I blog about here.

I decided to start this blog at the suggestion from several friends and because, if I’m being honest, because I’m single again after being in a long term relationship so I have a little extra time on my hands.  It’s also a great excuse to get out a bit more and check out all the things that make Chicago great including, but not limited to, bars, restaurants, shopping, and events.

Basically, the plan is for this to be a lifestyle blog about Chicago with a heavy emphasis on fashion.  At least that’s the plan for now.  I guess we’ll see as we go!
