Hi friends! Welcome to my very first blog. My name is Danielle Martinez, and I am pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Public Relations at the best university, Texas State University. I’d really love to get to know you all, so I’ll start first by sharing a little bit about myself. I was born and raised in College Station, Texas. I lived there for 22 years of my life and finally moved out of my hometown in May 2014 to San Marcos. I am a first generation student, which is more motivation to pursue my dream of having my own event planning business. As a Gemini, I’m very open-minded and love a little bit of everything.
Growing up I’ve always wanted to have my own garden. However, I was always hesitant because I thought the hobby was expensive and required a set of skills. Fortunately, I learned that I was wrong. As a student, I do not know many other students that garden. I find it to be a truly calming, therapeutic hobby. It is not stressful and the results can be very satisfying. So, my plan is to blog about gardening on a college student budget. My audience is not solely for college students, but rather anyone that thinks gardening is expensive and time-consuming.
Because I live in an apartment, I am going to focus on container gardening. I’ve only been gardening for a few months now, but I have been quite successful. I hope to explore an array of techniques that allows the growth of different types of plants. I also hope to incorporate websites and places I trust. My goal is to give my readers options. Not everyone wants to grow the same flower or vegetable and everyone has different preferences. If I can do it, then so can you!
I am happily open to suggestions, advice, and feedback.
