About Ally

• + • + •

Light-hearted, but willing to snark when necessary, Ally Bean, a somewhat extroverted introvert, has written a personal blog most years for well over a decade.

With a B.A. in English and a M.A. in Communication blogging came naturally to Ally.  She began her kickass blogging career when she woke up one morning and found herself living in a suburb of a large conservative midwestern city.

In that moment it dawned on her that she could add pizzazz to her life by connecting with people elsewhere via what was then a newfangled thing called blogging.

Despite a few setbacks that have threatened to end her blogging career, Ally Bean perseveres in her own charmingly cynical way, having learned to take blogging platform troubles + trolls + content thieves + spammers in stride.

Today, still a free spirit living in suburbia, she continues to write her quirky personal blog based on the idea that life is in the details, so pay attention.

Long live The Spectacled Bean.
