Welcome! My name is Hannah Hart and I’m a twentysomething-year-old writing to you from New England. I was born in Western Massachusetts and lived there until I graduated High School. After that, I moved to Lewiston, Maine and attended Bates College. While at Bates I studied Spanish Literature and met some of my greatest friends on this planet. While at school, I needed a distraction from writing my Spanish thesis so I started Hannah Hart Beat as a side project. Five years later the blog is still going strong.
Post Bates, I moved to New York and Lived in Brooklyn for five years. Over those years I worked a number of jobs, all that I loved. I spent a year working at Artists & Flea’s, worked for Brooklyn-based DNA Footwear, and spent three years working in Marketing and Merchandising for the lovely Food52. Currently, I am on leave from Brooklyn and am living in New England. I spend most of my days writing to you, working on a bigger writing project (stay tuned!), and obsessing (probably too much) on what’s going on in the wild west internet world.
For Hannah Hart Beat these last five years have meant different things. As a student it was a study distraction, at times the blog was a way to get over an ex, and when I first moved to the city it was an attempt to become the next New York blogger. Throughout everything, the blog has been a way to update my friends and family (hi mom!) with what I’m thinking about and what I love at the moment.
The lovely part about Hannah Hart Beat is now I get to talk and share with more than just friends and family, I also get to write to you! So whoever you are right now, Hart Beat, I’m so happy to have you here and I can’t wait to see where the blog takes us next.
