Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Alright, so I would like to get started with some important information for anyone who uses Instagram... I created my own account today and I'm excited to begin sharing photos with everyone!
For those who may not know, Instagram is a mobile app that allows users to share pictures with the world. I've had a personal account for a few years, but it's a private account that only friends and family have access to. Today, I decided to create a public account to help boost my image on social media.
I've been trying to figure out ways to improve my social media presence for quite some time now. Of course, I blog daily, and I have a Twitter account and public Facebook page, but I want to be able to reach more readers who may have an interest in the writing that I put out. I decided that since I already feel comfortable with Instagram, that should be the next way I try to connect with the world. So if you're an Instagram user, please check out my new profile @Taylor_Faith_Krigsman and follow me there!
I've decided that I'll start sharing behind the scenes looks at my writing process, both with children's books that I'm working on and my Young Adult novel that has been in the works. I might share photos of illustrations that I'm working on, or share a sneak peek of a chapter title... the possibilities are endless. Of course, you never know what else I'll find to share just for fun, so I'm looking forward to getting a lot of use out of this new account.
Now, something that I should have definitely taken a picture of (but I totally didn't think to do so) was the pizza that we got tonight for dinner. Let me just tell you that you should never, and I mean NEVER, take your local pizzeria for granted. You don't realize how difficult it is to find a good pizzeria until you've moved states away and start an eight-month-long search for some good pizza. I'm serious. We've lived here for eight months and have tried some different pizzerias in the area, but we just couldn't find anything that tasted half as good as what we had in New York. That is, until tonight.
We realized that there was a pizzeria not too far from here that we hadn't tried yet, so we gave it a shot tonight. Let's be honest, it still wasn't perfect... it wasn't New York pizza, after all. But it was the closest to perfect that we've found since we moved in down here. Amazing crust, just the right amount of cheese, warm and delicious; thank goodness we thought to try this place! It's great timing because in my family, we observe the "no meat on Fridays" rule for Lent, and we've been bouncing back and forth between pasta and Pizza Hut for the past few Fridays. Now we finally have an actual pizzeria to go to instead. I love Pizza Hut and all, but it's not real pizza, you know?
It's the little things in life that make my family happy. I hope that all of your families had a nice Friday night as well, and here's to a great weekend!
Your continued support means the world to me. From foster care to novels, and family to work experiences, I look forward to sharing more of my life with you each day. Don't hesitate to share your own stories with me or ask me questions about my life. Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
