New Media Pioneer: Maria Teresa of The Marveloddities

marvelodditiesThe Marveloddities is a blog about whatever comes to mind. This blog features an indie artist every week. They think independent musicians are pretty impressive, since they continue to work their hearts out without making a lot of money.  It’s something to be admired.

Q) Tell us a little bit about your site. What inspired you to start it?

A) The Marveloddities is a blog about nothing and everything.  We usually write about whatever comes to mind from the perspective of a teenager, most of which is unimportant in the big picture, but a big deal to us since we still live in the little picture. I was inspired to start it because I was really impressed with the quality of blogs nowadays.  A few years ago Blogger was dominated by emo teenagers who wrote about the hell they suffered through in school, their crush, how no one understood them, etc.  (We’re probably just as obnoxious, but not as depressed.)  There are a lot of blogs now which are really really good.  Some of them are devoted to a particular subject, and others can read like a journal but still make you laugh.

Last year, I decided that I could probably start my own.  I enlisted my friend, Josette, and my sister Sofia, and now we all contribute to our blog.
