Hi, I’m Sam. I’m an author, editor, and content strategist with a lot of tweets you might have seen on Instagram.
But Wait, There’s More… About Me
In 2011, I founded a blog called Forever Twenty Somethings. Millions of pageviews later, I turned my words into a book, Average is the New Awesome: A Manifesto for the Rest of Us, and my love of online media into a career. Today, I work full-time helping websites make money from recommending the products and services they love through commerce content—something I first fell in love with doing on my own website. I also run the popular Instagram account @averagepeopleproblems and write whenever I can! Aside from Forever Twenty Somethings and a variety of Instagram accounts showcasing my tweets, my work can be seen on Parents, USA TODAY, Women’s Health, HuffPost, Cosmopolitan, Reviewed, Seventeen, Good Housekeeping, and more. I’m represented by Erin Niumata at Folio Literary.

I don’t have a podcast, but this theme came with a podcast section. Should I start one?
I also don’t host any events, but alas, the theme came with this. I hosted an event once in 2014, though. Unsure if this counts.
