About Ally Bean

 Hello and thank you for reading my personal blog, The Spectacled Bean.

 I’m a free spirit by nature. This means I do my own thing here and everywhere, but because I’m a conscientious woman I do my own thing neatly. With a bit of style and planning.

 I started my first blog in 2004. Since then I’ve come to understand that personal blogs need not be narrow and predictable, so I write on a variety of topics in a myriad of ways.

 I’ve been told that I’m charmingly cynical which I believe is a good thing. I’ve also been told that I’m subtly subversive. I rather like that idea, too.

 I’m married to my college sweetheart. He studied Economics, then got a J.D. I studied English Literature, then got a M.A. in Communication. Today we live in a quirky suburb of a big midwestern city.

 I’ve come to realize that my current motto is: do no harm, but take no shit. If this idea resonates with you too, then welcome to my world. Happy to meet ‘ya.
