I, Alison Colby-Campbell, created this blog as an outlet for my very active full-brain mind. This means topics will run the gamut from right-brain creative and fantastical with photos and fancy images to left-brain logical and analytical with charts and graphs without a metaphor in sight. Sometimes you will witness the collision of both sides, and those posts will probably be really long as the lobes fight for dominance. This brain thing is also the reason I work in marketing – I love strategy, media planning, negotiations, and market research, but get a little pale when I’ve stayed too long out of the light of creative, big ideas and avant-garde promotion.
I’ve got big love for the three ‘As’: animals, arts, and advertising, as well as nature and photography, so all photos on this blog will be mine unless specifically identified as someone else’s.
Guest bloggers are encouraged, will appear about once a month. I look at submissions of about 700 words, plus a bio, 3-5 photos, and links. Guest bloggers topics are focused on my three passions: ANIMALS, the ARTS, the ENVIRONMENT and outstanding marketing ideas to support them. I have a second WordPress blog The Heartbeat of Haverhill that shares good news from this great city and regularly solicit ideas for that blog, so help a girl out and tell me what you enjoy while in Haverhill.
I claim the entire Massachusetts area, Boston and north, as my home, and consider all of New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Maine up to Mt Desert Island my backyard. My limited number of personal house rabbits, foster guinea pigs, collected rocks, plants, original artwork, and antique typewriters demonstrates that my “hoarder potential” is under control, but can it be called hoarding when one collects only the most wonderful things?
