Center Stage: It is What it Is.

By Jamie

Welcome back to Center Stage where we take a fanfare look at one of the many great blogs being churned out here in Alabama. You can find past spotlights here.

I love a good storyteller. I might fancy myself as such, but then I remember I begin a tale and then wind it up six topics to the right. And I can't quite remember what you and I were even talking about in the first place.

But that's not the case with Alabama blogger, Laurel Mills.

At It is What it Is, Laurel spins stories about all kinds of things that always seem to resonate. She tackles pop culture and you start searching the web. She wrestles with religion and you begin to meditate. She writes about family and you call your Mom.

Her expertise with the written word is not surprising with a resume including magazine editor and writing professor. Her previous employer, Lipstick Magazine, is still missed by yours truly.

When you visit Laurel's blog, make sure to take a seat for her Black Friday Scene-stealing and her Birthday Lamentations.

Jamie is a planner of events by day and chaser of shiny things by night. Follow her trails at Jamie's Rabbits. If you'd like to have your blog featured on "Center Stage" then contact Jamie so she can swing by your neck of the internet woods. Please know she sometimes shows up uninvited, so you may see your blog on stage if she really digs it.

It's no surprise: Laurel won a Green Eyeshade Award earlier this year for her writing.
