Evelyn and I started this blog in March 2011 after I called her and shouted into the phone:
“WE NEED TO START A BLOG!!!!”
Luckily, Ev didn’t think I was crazy. She agreed with me and we set out to become little journalists. Both of us writers, but not in this respect. Evelyn is an academic scholar and I am a poet. Between the two of us, we had to find our online voice.
But I think it’s working. Here’s the year summed up in numbers. I hope they tell you a little more about us and what we’re about.
- Charish Halliburton
- Evelyn Reynolds
4 hours spent on working on that little favicon
thing you see in your browser. Then I found out only 29% of readers can see it.
I spent $10 on the domain “salonnaturelles.com” but didn’t understand how to use it.
If someone out there can help us with this, please drop me a line
