Kaitlyn Anderson: an introduction.steemCreated with Sketch.

An Introduction

Hi Steemit!

Allow me to introduce myself. The cliché "My name is..." feels a little awkward, but here goes nothing...
My name is Kaitlyn Anderson and I attend school in Massachusetts. I live on a farm with an eccentric but lovable family. I'm interested in joining the steemit community to learn and share my passions. My blog is going to be a smorgasbord of all my many interests, from my poetry, art, and opinions, to lucid dreaming and conspiracy theories. Basically just a big page of things I like. I love learning and hope to share my finds with my fellow steemers. Most importantly I hope to express my most authentic self here on steemit.

I have been writing and drawing for as long as I can remember. I have always been the girl whose schoolbooks are more full of doodles and poems than actual notes, and walls are full of taped up art. I remember even in preschool, I would spend my recess drawing obsessively and teaching my friends tutorials. During car rides, I either had my nose stuck in a book or my head caught up in my stories (all of which had unicorns back then). I never outgrew these habits, and to this day, my passion for creativity only grows.

These are some of our first doodles:

And here are some more recent sketchbook pages:

Today one of our hens hatched four new chicks into our ever growing family, and more are on the way. On days like this I can't be more grateful to live how we do, life would be so dull without our animals.

Here is mother hen with her four new babies.
Here is the tired mother hen and her new babies.

Here is one of the chicks. Any name suggestions?

I'm excited to share my thoughts with you all

Welcome to steemit. I hope you will have a great time here :D

Welcome to Steemit!

Welcome, I'm sure you'll fit in super nicely here on SteemIt. It also sounds like you have a ton of things to share with us! I look forward to seeing your post especially the post on conspiracy theories! I don't typically believe anything from them but I find them very interesting none the less.

Hi @kaitlyn.anderson i introduced you in one of my posts as well check it out if you can thanks.

25 Best Minnows Steemians to follow last Week of June 2017

Heyyyyy Kaitlyn I'm on steemit now love the intro post

Hello! Very nice to meet you. I am very happy to have another artsy person in my list! Looking forward to seeing all your "best of the moment" type posts.

If you lived at my house, your new chick's name would be Chicky, another would be Clucky and then Henny. You'd have to go read about my Molly dog to truly get the naming joke.

·

Nice to meet you too! I couldn't find your story about Molly but I really like your blog. Great content!

·
·

Did you notice I'm a little all over the place? I get a little excited about people who are willing to bring all their gem sides in and sparkle. They're always more fun!

Oh the Molly story, I'm sorry. It's actually named My day in 3 parts Part 3 in which everything goes sideways blue

Also, if you like the "you see, i see" style of writing that I use in some of my posts, you (and anyone else) are welcome to try it out. ... ohhh I have to go edit my last post and include that invite and link the very simple "how to"

Alright, I'm gone to do that. You can shoot me a message anytime on any of my current posts.

Enjoy have fun!

You are awesome! Welcome to steemit!

Welcome too SteemIt. Do you have many farm animals? Looks like your first post is off to a great start! :)

I'm a big fan of your crazy brother! look forward to seeing your content!

·

He is quite crazy but in the best way. Thank you!

Welcome lil lady!

those chicks are too cute. Welcome Kaitlyn. I am new here as well. I have only been here 10 days longer and love it. SOOO much better than Facebook. I feel like I am actually meeting new people rather than the same old people I see every day. Look forward to keeping up with your posts!

·

Thank you! Welcome as well! I already love this community better than my other social medias.

·
·

me too. Facebook and instagram actually make me feel bad/depressed. i have gotten off them all together

I'm also in love with those chicks!! Super cute! Following you!

·

Thank you! I will post some more chicks for sure.

Welcome to Steemit! Hope you enjoy it here!! 😉👍😃

Great introduction! Welcome! I just joined yesterday, and am still figuring out my intro!

·

Thank you! Welcome as well!

Doodles and chickens.. Slice of life.. That is so lovely! :)
Looking forward to your posts! Have a great and blessed day @kaitlyn.anderson . Much love from the Philippines. ^_^

Super nice to meet you! Love your sketches. When I was 9 years old I wrote an article called Dreaming Your Future, where 9 year old me wrote about how I liked to draw and would become a famous artist over the course of the next 5 years. I encouraged other young women to think about making their passions work for them. I am not a famous artist, but I still remember how drawing made me feel peaceful and centered.

·

Thank you! I find art to be a great way to relax and express youself, I'm glad I have it in my life!

Welcome to steemit! :)

This is my sister!!!

Kaitlyn! That was fun to read and I'm excited to see your conspiracy theory articles. I love that stuff and I am trying to be my most authentic self too. Starting soon. All I have written so far, at least to public, was my introduce myself post. I think it's nice like talking between friends. We can all use more of those.
Wow it's so late I need to get off. Time flies on Steemit. Have a lovely day.

·

Thank you! I'm am still wondering about what to do for my first real post as well, but so far am really enjoying meeting new friends on steemit!

Team Work Makes The Dream Work

·

Thank you! I'm all about the dream team

Wow, you're good at posting and also beautiful with cute eyes....

hello Kaitlyn, welcome to steemit! I'm intrigued about your mention of lucid dreaming, do have them often? This is a great community you joined, with plenty of helpful people and interest groups of anything you can think of. Hope you have a good time here and meet new friends. Good luck!

p.s. you should name your chicken fuzzy, much cooler name than what our new chick names will be.

·

Thank you! Ever since learning about lucid dreaming I was completely entranced by it. Unfortunately I've only had a few, but am working to have more! I love learning and sharing about the topic. I also love the name fuzzy. It suites him.

·
·

awesome, have a good time here I'm sure you'll fit in here great.

Welcome to Steemit Kaitlyn! :) I'm new to Steemit as well! I can see you're passionate for animals! I am too 😊 I hope to have a small farm just like you one day.

Welcome Kaitlyn

I love how personal and interesting your introduction sounds! Feel really excited for what is yet to come! :)

Hi Kaitlyn, really nice drawings. I would be delighted, if you named one chick as "Kornilov", because I declare myself as chick also. Let me know your decision. I'm impatiently waiting for a good news. :)

A name suggestion for the little chick...how about "Picky Penny" or just Penny?
:D
Dave

·

Adding the names to the list. Thanks!

Welcome! I vote to name the chick Puffy McFeatherton.

·

Another very suitable name!

Can't wait for the poetry posts! Welcome to the club! I just joined this month too! <3

·

Hoping to post some soon! Welcome as well.

Following you right now! Welcome to Steemit!

The chicks name is "Toby" can be female or male.
Love the art by the way. Really cool stuff.

·

Love the name because we can't tell the gender until its much older. Thanks!

Hii @kaitlyn.anderson, Nice to Meet U
by #aceh Steemit Community


@muftykutink

Nice post. How about Alice or Jimmy for names?

·

More names! Love it! It's going to be hard to choose!

Welcome @kaitlyn.anderson - I see you art has come a long way, but the first drawing has a certain freshness about it :) Welcome to the community. Following!

Welcome!! 👍

Hey Kaitlyn nice to meet you, you are pretty cute, greetings from Argentina, welcome to the site. Btw your "hello Steemit" with flowers was awesome.

What other animals do you have? I helped a friend take care of ducks and turkeys one time! For the chick's name...Thrognaught the Mighty seems to fit quite nicely.

·

I love the name! Currently we have two horses, too many chickens, bees, three cats, and a dog, and are looking into goats. I would love to get ducks though, they are the cutest.

·
·

Bees are awesome!

Welcome to Steemit @kaitlyn.anderson! Great introduction post. Love that you live on a farm and look forward to seeing more posts about the farm life. Wonderful sketches. I really like the one with the girl surrounded by flowers. I think you should name the chick Rocky the Rooster from the movie Chicken Run. If it is a girl chick then Ginger Chicken!

·

Thank you! Hopefully I can post some more art soon. I love those names!

Those are cool chickens! I've always wanted to live in a farm; I'm sure it's more peaceful than the city. I like your drawing and you are also cute! :]

Hi! I LOVE art as well and love to sketch... im sad because I've kind of neglected that part of me due to work and always on the go. Its so relaxing to just sit there and draw... your artwork is beautiful, and so are you!

@kaitlyn.anderson hello and welcome to Steemit!

Hello and welcome to STEEMIT! Hope you follow your dreams and become a great artist!

Welcome to Steemit, @kaitlyn.anderson!

Hope you enjoy being here!

This message was written by my introduceyourself bot.

You could name it Sir Frost Eggington !!!!!

Kaitlyn, I have an idea. To keep all followers happy could every chick have multiple names, like an important queen or king. What do you think? :)

Hi kaitlyn. I'm also a newbie here. I hope we can be friends :)

Welcome to Steemit Kaitlyn!👍

Nice to meet you @kaitlyn.anderson I am new too.

Hi Kaitlyn, I am brand new to Steemit and just came across your post. I really am a bit reluctant to say this ... but that orange fluff on the top of the chick's head kinda reminds me of someone who gets a lot of press coverage these days ... :) ... but hey I won't go there, let's name the chick: Ginger Plum Muffin

Welcome to Steem, @kaitlyn.anderson! I love living on a farm...left mine behind with caretakers so I could come on a 5 year adventure to Japan with a job that I applied for and got! I sure do miss my chickens and goats though! I love your comment about having your feet on the ground, head in the clouds...wonderful! Following.
