Best of the web! Times two.

About a month or so ago, I was contacted by an editor of Pocketchange.com, asking if I would be a part of the site's weekly feature, "Best of the Web," showcasing the best blogs of the week. I readily said 'yes!' I was asked to write up a blurb describing myself and what my blog is all about. For someone who writes about people and things for a living, writing about myself was actually hard!

"Offbeat, positive and stuck in the wrong decade, Kristin Will offers a peek into the life of a 25-year-old newspaper editor-in-chief, photographer and baker through bright photographs and narratives knee-deep in emotion on her blog, Quill. Kristin shares her thrifting scores, awkward encounters, quirky crushes and kitchen messes on a regular basis from the honest perspective of an ambitious young whippersnapper making herself at home in Massachusetts’ Pioneer Valley. Visit Quill to see what adventure she’s biked, baked, grown, photographed or thrifted herself into!”

A second "Best of the Web" this week is of my own designation - today Jack's Mannequin's album "People and Things" dropped! And it's SO GOOD and I can't stop playing it! Already. At 9:25 a.m.
Because I purchased a T-shirt at the last concert I went to where I actually died and went to heaven - I mean met Andrew McMahnon - I was given a postcard (above, complete with Andrew's signature!) with a free download of the album. At 8 a.m. I had already downloaded it and was listening. It' so great and I am really loving the tracks "Television" and "Restless Dream" :D

And in two days, I am going to see Jack's play with AN ORCHESTRA at the Connecticut Bushnell! Woo! Complete with my Jack's ladies! Can't wait!

Now I'm off to the dentist! AHH!


  1. Ahh, congrats on the feature!! What a nice write-up! xo

  2. Eep! I also love Jack's new album! Love! They're coming to my city in November; I can only pray I get to meet Andrew! Ha, ha - fan girl moment.
