If you’ve paid attention to my Twitter bio or have followed this blog for some time, you know that I am a lefty.
I actually have a category called Being a lefty.
Being a left-handed person in a right-handed world can be annoying, and I like to write about it from time to time. I’m also a mom to a left-handed child which can present some interesting challenges, particularly with writing. Some of the most popular posts on this blog are about being left-handed, including:
- No Syrup For You, Lefty
- Left-Handed Facts in Infographic Form
- Happy International Left-Handers’ Day!
- Teaching Left-Handed Children How to Write
Why am I sharing this with you? Because it’s International Left Handers’ Day! A day when left-handed people like me – 10% of the population – get to create their own “lefty zone” where everything must be done left-handed.
So go ahead and pick up an apple corer or wite out tape and see what happens when you use your left hand.
I also thought today would be a great day to officially launch my new Tumblr site dedicated to all things left-handed.
Yup. I’ve been playing around with this site for a little while now, and International Left-Handers’ Day seemed the best day to officially go public with it. If I wasn’t completely unplugged last week, I might have thought of putting together a press release to go along with it. I suppose I still can.
For now, I’d love for you to check out the website allthingslefthanded.com. It’s a fun Tumblr blog where I curate lefty facts, quotes, stories, articles, products and more. I even created a Lefty Store!
Are you on Tumblr? (I’m having a lot of fun with Tumblr, I will admit.)
You can also follow all things left-handed on Twitter. (Seriously, I could use some followers!)
