“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.”
– Jimmy Johnson
Oh my gosh, I can breathe again. I have a website! That works!
I am going to leave it up to you whether or not you want to choose the choice of pressing ‘play’ on the following Welcome Back Kotter theme song while you read. I won’t force you? Because I really feel like not everyone can get behind this ’70s moment the way that I can? But think about it.
So if you weren’t aware, One More Thing has undergone a total website overhaul and I’ve been working (tirelessly) on converting it for months in order to grow her to the beautiful girl she is capable of being. It’s just taken … so much longer than I ever anticipated. But fear not, I have been backlogging blogs for weeks now and I can’t wait to share them with you soon!
Let me interject about the new site. Picture a nineteen year old me. Super sophisticated and clever for her age (wink). Not a girl not yet a woman, you know what I mean? I was working at a summer internship and was so desperate for a creative outlet. Condé Nast still hadn’t responded to my application for a potential head editor position at Vogue (Rude?). Plus, my dreams of being the next JLo weren’t panning out. So I started a blog.
Three birthdays later (three! crazy!) with Wordpress.com, and OMTKP started to really grow in traffic, opportunity, and most importantly love. Aw! Unfortunately, I felt that the old site in which I had no ownership was just not emotionally nor physically equipped to handle these elements. I decided to convert everything over to a site in which I do have ownership. Fundamentally, I can reach a greater audience, I can advertise, and overall I can control every finite detail because I’m neurotic and that’s the way I like it. Hmph.
I am so excited to give everyone a little update of the last few months as to provide proof that I haven’t fallen off a cliff or wound up lost in Nordstrom, but be patient lovers and friends, it will come.
As of today, we are officially launched. And to my awed and welcomed surprise, have a lot lot of new followers! Welcome everyone! For the first post of the new site, I’m going to post our “About” section (which you can also find at the top of the page). In the mean time, play around on the new site and let me know what you think! Although, I know you’ll love it. Because if you don’t I don’t want to hear about it. Hello?–Did you not just hear me say how hard I’ve worked on it? Besos.

Whether you’re a fellow blogger, consider yourself someone who is inspired to try new things, or you’re one of my friends and family that I’ve paid off to read my articles, this blog is aggressively perfect for you.
There’s a theme here (the blog is called “One More Thing” for a reason). As much as I can I’m going to try to give y’all one more thing to try, think about, learn, create, etc. in your lives. So fun, right? I speak to those who are both winsome in style and fashion, mad men in the kitchen, and who are also unapologetic in their pop cultural awareness. If this is you, I welcome you to join the One More Thing with KP family! If this isn’t you, let it be you and become you. Trust.
One of my goals with One More Thing is to get y’all to interact both with me and with each other. So comment your heart out and don’t forget to subscribe to get my blogs sent directly to your email.
I won’t send nudes. I probably won’t send nudes.
I’m so excited you’re here, and I sincerely hope you love reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
