A Dramatically Correct Lensography
Welcome to my Lensography!
Who is that masked thespian? Known online as Avgsuperheroine, I'm the creator of Dramatically Correct, a website dedicated to all things theatrical.
I began volunteering in community theatres at the age of 14, thanks to two mentors. After volunteering for community theatre and a few High School shows for four years, I decided not to go to college to learn accounting, but to pursue my love of theatre in the Midwest.
Once out of school, I moved to a small town with a fantastic community theatre. I worked there as a costume shop manager for about a decade and then went on to pursue a career outside of the non-profit sector.
In my many years of working in theatre, around theatre, for theatre, and with theatre folks (nothin like 'em!), it's hard to let it all go. I spent my time as a director, costume designer, quick change designer, lighting designer, light board operator, and sometimes actress (if there was a pleasingly delicious ditzy blonde character that didn't need singing ability available). So now that I have no time for late, late nights setting lights--I spend my late nights cozy at home working on my website, blog, lenses and gift designs.
Squidoo! What Led Me Here.
What led me to Squidoo? I wrote my first lens, Community Theatre Fundraising Ideas when I was taking down an old blog and didn't want to lose my content. I put it up, let it sort of "hang out" for about two years and came back to see that I had earned...*drumroll* $0.02! Woot!
Well it was my own fault. I didn't research what made a good lens, I didn't know anything about HTML or keywords. I didn't know how to make a great lens yet. So I did some research and put a lot of work back into my lens. A week later, I was blessed by an angel! Awesome. Then I wrote another couple of lenses and then made a sale! Then I wrote my fourth lens which was also blessed. What an exciting couple of months.
I really enjoy working on all of my Dramatically Correct projects, and this site adds a lot of fun elements to doing work online. It's boosted up my Zazzle sales and given me some more fun things to write about! So far I really love it.
So What's With the Name? - Where did "Avgsuperheroine" come from?
I know most folks can figure out the Dramatically Correct name, but I do get asked where the "Avgsuperheroine" name came from. Avgsuperheroine has always been my online pseudonym, starting in the late 90s. As a teen I saw the Blue Meanies play at Club Toast in Burlington, VT and heard their song called "Average American Superhero", so I spun Avgsuperheroine off of that song.
