About

HI THERE!

Welcome to A Spork in the Road. This is where I unload share the recipes I’m developing, lessons I’m learning, and adventures I’m having. I might weigh in on some heavy topics, and run headlong into all the reasons it’s important to say “You’re Welcome”, while I’m making affordable Ceviche and showing you how to plan the perfect gift for your host or hostess. I also enjoy sharing the occasional short story or poem.

Sometimes I say fuck.

WHAT YOU’LL FIND HERE

  • Delicious Recipes
  • Love letters to humanity
  • Random thoughs
  • Pretty Pictures
  • Destruction of the English Language
  • Oxford Commas
  • WAY TOO MANY ellipses and em dashes

I’M ALSO ON A SEARCH FOR A CIDER THAT DOESN’T MAKE ME FEEL LIKE I SLEPT WITH A TABLESPOON OF SUGAR IN MY MOUTH.

WHO AM I?

I’m so glad you asked, random Internet traveler. I’m Terra, your hostess with the mostest during your stay. I have been blogging since 2002 (that’s eleventy-billion years in blog years), when it made the most sense in my budding marketing career. In my daily life, I run a Public Relations and Event Planning boutique. I just moved my popular food and travel blog, A Spork in the Road, to this site, in an effort to consolidate and live more simply.

I am a problem solving ninja, leadership and cooperative workplace development coordinator, author, artist, autodidact, world traveler, avid reader, apt pupil, and coffee tea addict. I have more than 25 years experience in Public Relations, Marketing, and Event design, plus another 25 in what you would call Social Media, because there were BBS before just plain old online BS. I am an early adopter for all things tech, and have worked on projects for Big Oil, Big Telecom, Big Health, Musicians, Film Makers & Festivals, Attorneys, Authors, Artists, Actors, and Educational Resource Firms.

I am on Facebook, trying to engage you.

Twitter is where I’m witty in 140 characters or less (usually much less).

YouTube is my video archive. Sometimes I spend a REALLY long time on camera being ridiculous.

My Instagram is filled with random signs of life, from beagles to nephews, and all the food, yoga, and places I find myself in between.

I’ve also been known to pin the heck out of some pins on Pinterest.

Sometimes I go crazy on Snapchat.

Anyway, thank you – from the bottom of my heart – for stopping by. If you find that cider, shoot me a note so I can go get some.

 

Oh, and don’t forget to subscribe to my weekly newsletter, so you never miss out on the fun. I promise not to spam you, not even in a recipe.


Much Love,

Terra
