About Mollie

What’s the point in an about page when you’re already reading all of my thoughts?

Hi, I’m Mollie Crowl, and you’re reading my blog. Apparently, as I’ve been told, that isn’t enough to get to know me. Because of that, you’re now on my about page where I talk even more about myself.

It’s a lot, I know.

For someone that likes to talk a lot, when it comes to talking about myself, I often don’t know where to begin. I’ll help you dip your toe in with the basics: I’m a Michigan native and recent college graduate with a Bachelor of Science in secondary education. I’ll save you the math and tell you that yes, that means I’m about 20-something.

In addition to education, I’m also passionate about animals, mental health, and social justice. In addition to being a college graduate and educator, I am a pet parent, performer, comedienne, and aunt. At most times, I’m also the loudest person in any given room.

I’ve spent my entire life wanting to teach and also dabbling in various forms of expression. This has included poetry, crafts, painting, pottery, video-making, and most recently, blogging.

Hot Mess Mollie was born in June of 2016.

Since then, I have changed themes, logos, blogging platforms, and niches. I’ve written on Google Docs, Microsoft Word, the notes app on my phone, and even on scraps of napkin when I’ve been inspired but out and about.

More recently, I’ve been published on Thought Catalog and The Mighty.

Prior to starting a blog, I always felt like I talked too much to be able to write things down. A YouTube channel or a podcast would work so much better for me. For a while, they did… and then they didn’t.

I decided to start focusing more time on writing my thoughts down. Old school. (If you consider a Macbook and a website old school.) Unlike my previous adventures, I was not ashamed of the product. I started sharing links to the things I was writing with my family, with friends, and even posting links onto my social media.

I was proud.

From there, Hot Mess Mollie seemed to grow on its own. Now, here we are.

I still am very proud of my little blog with the thoughts I just want someone to hear. Whether you’re a friend, family member, or a stranger, thank you for listening to things happening in my brain.

I hope you continue to enjoy the mess that is my thought process.
