A Most [im]Proper Introduction

Welcome to What Would Jane Do!

Are you a fan of Jane Austen? What about college advice, study abroad or social media? Then you've come to the right place.

My name is Tiffany Harrison and I am a self-confessed teaholic with wannabe-time-traveler tendencies and a penchant for doling out advice. I hold a degree in journalism public relations, a passport with not nearly enough stamps (yet), and a creative writing streak.

Just as the tag line suggests, this blog will act as more of a guide than a rule book. I mean, who really follows the rules anyway? Certainly not me (unless we're talking about making the perfect cup of tea....which is a story for another time).

In retrospect, I have come to realize that setting up this blog was only a matter of time. After picking up my first book as a toddler and my first pen soon thereafter, I've been accumulating ideas for many years now. It was only recently that these ideas became streamlined, and pen was put to paper so to speak.  

I am like every other post-grad, working girl out there---stretching every dollar to it's limit and never completely worry-free about what the future may hold. I'm not an expert and I don't claim to be (why bother putting Ask Jeeves out of business?). Like many of you, I still have a lot to learn of the world and I'd much rather leave room for further enrichment and understanding. I may be a bit of a throwback, but I believe firmly in advocating for every independent and modern woman out there. We have so much potential and so many stories to tell, and it's time the world paid closer attention. This is one of the main reasons why I'll be looking for your advice and stories. Birds of a feather flock together, right? Well, grab your passports and join me on this one-way ticket adventure.

Please check back soon for the first official advice-related post. It seems appropriate (or inappropriate as the case may be) that the launch of this blog falls so close to the recent news headlines regarding Jane Austen's manuscripts and I will be incorporating my thoughts on the matter into the post.

In the meantime, please see the About WWJD for more information or shoot me an email to share your initial thoughts.

As a closing to this introduction, I'd like to thank all my friends and colleagues for their unending support and motivation. Without it, the seeds for this blog never would've been planted. Who needs water and sunshine when I have people like you helping me to grow?
