Since May of last year, F-Perfection has been a therapeutic, nerve-wracking and exciting experience for me. At its inception, F-Perfection was about being unfiltered and real, about embracing my own personal imperfections, even laughing at them, and sharing them with the world.
F-Perfection has become bigger to me than obsessing over Instagram followers and WordPress analytics. It’s been a platform for myself and others I’ve been able to connect with to share real, true & unfiltered stories about what it means to be in your 20’s. That, at its core, is what I want this website to be. And that’s what it’s about to become.
I’ve had a lot of amazing guest posts over the past few months from amazing women I’ve connected with from groups like The Lady Gang, The Skinny Confidential and The Morning Breathers. From there, I’ve seen what I thought was true all along: we’re ALL going through the same or similar struggles.
We all have stories to tell—funny ones, sad ones, ones of heartbreak and ones full of love. Many of us have found the loves of our life and have mastered our side hustles, but some of us are swiping on Bumble until our fingers cramp or feel stuck in a rut at a dead end job. I want to hear from each and every one of you. Whatever your story is, I want this to be a place where you can share. Welcome to the new format of F-Perfection.
WHAT IS F-PERFECTION?

Can I post anonymously?
Yes, of course! If you choose to be anonymous, we fully support your decision and will protect your identity to the best of our ability. If you choose to write using you name, you have the ability to include social media handles for self promotion and shameless plugs.
Can I share my posts on F-Perfection to other sites?
No. By submitting a post to F-Perfection, you’re forgoing the ability to share that post on any other sites. You can, however, share your post to your social media platforms and encourage your friends to do so as well!
Where did your posts go, Sam?
F-Perfection is no longer just about me. It’s about all of us. Don’t worry, my stories are being kept safe and will be a part of a larger project ;). Unfortunately, they’re no longer available to read on this website. Have no fear, I’ll still pop up every now and then when I have something really special, exciting or funny to share. I’m planning on doing a monthly post/recap of some of my favorite posts, favorite picks of the month, etc.
Thank you for coming along this journey with me. I’m excited to see where F-Perfection goes. 2017 has been good to F-Perfection, but I know 2018 will be even better thanks to you all.
