I’ve been writing blogs on Box Office Poison for about a year now, but I previously wrote for a couple of businesses I worked for, as well as an LGBT+ blog as a teenager (which you will never find, ever, as long as I shall live, that skeleton is BURIED MY WRITING WAS SO BAD), but I find that most of my inspiration for writing blogs has come from the endless list of independently-run lifestyle/topic specific blogs I’ve stumbled across.
