The Versatile Blogger Award

Last week we were nominated by Hookup Culture for the Versatile Blogger Award! Thank you so much for the nomination! We love your blog and are so glad you like ours too 🙂 (Rules for nominees at the bottom of the page)

7 Facts about us:

  1. Our origin story: Samantha, Stanford and Carrie went to high school together, Stanford and Carrie also went to university together while Samantha and Charlotte were roommates at university for four years. Miranda and Samantha met at work and started DTT6 to replace the post-shenaniganry coffee updates taking place all too frequently.
  2. Charlotte has a photographic memory….when it comes to memorizing shopping malls and online inventories.
  3. Samantha can name the winner of every season of survivor (and is very proud of this fact)
  4. Miranda‘s sneezes are so loudly she could both wake the dead and scare the living half to death.
  5. Carrie has never had the chicken pox so don’t expect any dates with her to be anywhere near a coop or a farm.
  6. Stanford can say the entire alphabet backwards.
  7. The five of us have never been in the same room all at the same time.

Yay for Thought Catalog!

Samantha – Something pretty cool happened recently that I wanted to share with you guys. A few weeks ago I sent in my post, “Mr. Disappearing Act” to Thought Catalog on a whim.  I’m pretty proud of the piece and think it’s quite relateable, which is why I took a chance and submitted it for review. This seemed excessively scary at the time, but as one of the first “emotional” pieces I’d written, I was worried about how it would be judged.

Well, much to my surprise, I received an email two days ago that my submission was posted….YAY!!!


I know this isn’t that big a deal, but I’ve never submitted a piece of my writing to be published before, and was also very excited that  – aside from the title – little to no changes were made to the original piece.

Snaps and claps for Samantha, professional blogger-in-training!
