I am a strange and unusual soul with a day job and a mortgage, trying to make the most out of life. This blog has really evolved out of me trying to prove to myself that you can still be interesting even if you wear a suit to work. I’m always on the hunt for unusual places to visit, events to attend, and entertainment to break up my workweek. Everything I post is something I’ve actually visited, tried, eaten, drank, or worn.
There are four different types of posts you can expect to see here at Everyday Strange:
Muse of the Day: An offbeat inspirational or just unusual quote. I loosely stick to a theme each week, and will choose just about anything that strikes my interest.
Strange Acoustics: Each Sunday I choose a different musical performance to feature. In the past I’ve written about everything from classical musicians covering pop songs, ballet and ice skating paired with alt rock, and avant-garde musicians.
Strange Wednesdays: These are my middle of the week free for all posts. Designed to give you a little boost when the week is starting to feel long, they give you one weird thing to brighten your day, and four other things to look forward too. I always include a new show or movie starting that week, an astronomy event that gives you a reason to look up, an unusual holiday to celebrate, and an online volunteer opportunity to make the most out of your down time.
Strange Places/Events: Every Friday I write about a strange place I’ve visited or event I’ve attended. Goldmines, Russian submarines, burlesque shows, all kinds of odd things. Sometimes I feature the strange details of a widely traveled place, and occasionally just something well known that really surpassed my expectations.
I also want to connect with other strange and unusual souls and share their perspective. On the last Friday of every month I feature a guest post sharing their own unique experience, and I also take submissions for Strange Wednesdays as well. Please visit the submissions page to submit your own guest post!
If you’ve found that, like me, you never grew out of wearing black, watching horror movies, obsessing over true crime documentaries, or just see the world a little differently, this is the place for you.
