Lucky Seven Ten was born out of of strong desire to share my experiences with others who might find them useful, inspirational, informational and entertaining. You can expect product reviews, travel advice, food recipes, guest articles and random thoughts.
Why the name? I was born on July 10th hence the Seven and Ten, and both are considered lucky numbers in many cultures and throughout history. The #7 and #10 have important significance in the bible as well.
I’ve had a love-fear relationship with writing for as long as I can remember. As a kid I loved reading and language arts, I often mused about becoming a writer, magazine editor or journalist. At 9 years old I moved to the United States and my focus became learning to speak English and adapting to the NYC lifestyle. Being that English was not first language (Spanish was) I didn’t feel confident in my vocabulary, grammar or writing skills and the desire to write was obscured by the fear of being judged . But Love is greater than Fear and Lucky Seven Ten is proof that I’m on my way to winning the battle. I have been toying with the idea of blogging for a long time, and this finally feels like the right time.
Why now? Well, for starters I am way more confident in my writing/language skills. I am a little wiser now. Oh, and I just got engaged which is the perfect opportunity to document the start of something new (I don’t have to worry about running out of content). Lastly, there have been many occasions in which I wanted to share my experiences but non of the previous topics came together as much this one does.
I hope you enjoy this blog and share your experiences with me too.
