About Think Spin

Lauren headshotWelcome to my crime scene where thoughts splatter the page after spinning from my head. Temporary insanity I like to say. The evidence is overwhelming. I’m guilty of a different way of thinking.

A lifelong ADDer and pop culture enthusiast, I launched Think Spin in 2009 during the dark days of unemployment, to help me make sense of a world rattled by the stock market crash that knocked me off my feet. Somehow, my family, blog, and I survived, but barely.

Eight years later, we’re all still here, but struggle to make sense of the new world order and the fundamental changes it has caused. Though Think Spin and I have gone through many transformations along the way, we still follow our core beliefs. Observing the ironic, iconic and often moronic in everyday life and writing about those experiences with wit, to wit, but I won’t digress. Instead, let’s move on to the next paragraph. A short jump below, I hope you’ll join me.

In addition to crafting blog posts, I write dark short stories, humorous and satirical essays we well as prose.

I’ve had essays published on Huffington Post, AtomicReach.com, BlazingMinds.uk.co, ByLine Magazine, MomBloggersClub.com, the Front Porch Syndicate, InspireToThrive.com and the News-Times, and Sammiches & Psych Meds. My noir short, “Priming Pamela,” was published in Shroud Magazine.

When you have a moment, please check out an excerpt from my memoir at Huffington Post. What do you think? Please let me know.

I am truly grateful you stopped by here during your busy day. Hope to see you again soon.

    lol the tubes are definitely clogged with shit – it’s up to us individuals to try and break out with our own versions of liquid plumber to get through it all 🙂

      Thanks Phil!

      I haven’t been around lately. We went to Florida this past weekend and then it was busy when I returned to work on Tuesday. Breathe I’m going to catch up on my blogging this weekend.

    I have been following Lauren since her first posts, and while her blog as transformed its look over the years, her humor, attitude and sharp wit as stayed on point. I believe we both started our blogs for the same reason, unemployment. While I sold my blog off, years ago, I am happy Lauren kept hers going and growing. So for me, Think Spin is as comfortable as my favorite pair of worn out jeans.

    Cheers to the next 5 years of Think Spin

      Hi Glenn,

      I can’t begin to express my gratitude for your kind words. I really appreciate that you’ve been hanging with me all these years and reading my blog. Your words mean more to me that you can imagine.

      Thank you again for being a regular reader and for saying such nice things about me and my blog.

      I’m glad you’re back! I love the new site. I guess not that new.

    Lauren, I find your blog very informative. I think it is a great idea blogging. I want to do this, but I have no time. You’re a big fellow that made ​​the site. I appreciate you. There are a lot of blogs, but information there is unnecessary. It is hard to find what you need. Your blog helps people to understand things differently. Tell me please, how much time do you spend on writing posts?

    With best regards, Diana.

      Hi Diana,

      I’m not a fellow. lol!

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Sometimes a blog post can take a day or two to write because I let it sit after finishing a draft. Other times, writing a post can take several hours. I write slowly. It helps to have a headline or idea before I start writing. I write extemporaneously. I keep my editor switched off while writing the first draft.
