Note From the Author:
Thank you for stopping by our humble little space on the internets. My name is Andrea, and I am a freelance writer, grad student, and creator of Indie Maven. I am blessed to be surrounded by incredibly talented people – some business people, some artists, some chefs, some just creative souls. Recently I began to become frustrated by the lack of exposure these brilliant people were getting, and I thought there had to be a way to start networking and showcasing this talent. Hence, Indie Maven was born. According to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED to the dorks),”maven” is Yiddish for an expert or a knowledgeable enthusiast – I don’t claim to be an expert, but I am an enthusiast, and I hope to become your knowledgeable enthusiast on all things indie. I welcome your comments on the types of content you’re looking for and especially your experience with our featured indie geniuses. I only ask that everyone be respectful – my hope is that this can be a positive space, where inspiration is nurtured and independence celebrated. I also believe in the power of the written word, so as much as I love photographs and will feature them here, this isn’t a photoblog – so I hope you will plan a little extra time to savor Indie Maven’s longer-than-a-blurb posts
Thanks for stopping by, we hope to see you again soon!
