Feature: Smart, Pretty, and Awkward!

I often find myself wormholing through blogs for really lengthy amounts of time, but it’s fairly rare that a blog catches my attention for long enough that I decide to follow it regularly. So, following that train, it’s also really rare that I’ll go through every post in the archives of a particular blog. Smart, Pretty, and Awkward definitely fell into that category, though. It’s the brainchild of the wonderful Molly Ford, where she imparts on readers truly brilliant advice on being (as the name suggests) smart, pretty, and less awkward.



What inspiration do you take from your own life and experiences when giving advice to others?
Everything I write about is what I have either observed or experienced myself. So although I feel super-cheesy using the word inspiration, since my daily life is what I use to get ideas for Smart Pretty and Awkward, then I guess it's also my inspiration! I'm almost always thinking about things to use on the blog--I carry around a running list in my Blackberry and am always updating it.


“It is impossible to keep a straight face in the presence of one or more kittens” —Cynthia E. Varnado


I am absolutely in love with the quotes you pick. What is a quote you are inspired by?
Most of my favorite quotes are music lyrics. "And in a thousand years and a thousand tears, I'll come find my original crew," from the OAR song "I Feel Home" is probably my overall favorite. It always reminds me how much I love my girls, and wouldn't change them for anything. Plus, the entire song pretty accurately describes growing up in a small town, so it always reminds me of home and gives me a sweet feeling. (What a sweetheart, right?)


“Never grow a wishbone, daughter, where you backbone ought to be” —Clementine Paddleford


What’s the best piece of advice (smart, pretty, awkward, or otherwise) that you’ve ever gotten?
From my parents--buckle your seat belt! Can't ever go wrong with that advice. (Too true!)
