Welcome to the Friendly Felon! As you can tell, I am just your friendly neighborhood felon and I’m here to share my good and bad experiences as a felon, my triumphs and the continuing battles that come with being a felon along with some pro-tips that can help you overcome your own background.
I will feature a majority of posts with tips and hints for felons, throw in a few posts with art and creative endeavors, and on occasion…. post about random things that I find interesting or aggravating. For instance – Raging Against the Ticket is another good example of how research, a thrift store suit, and a good attitude can get you further than you think – even when I was quite outraged.
I also share links to my newly (and professionally!!) published book – The Friendly Felon’s Guide to Life After a Felony. (Thank you Microcosm) Often, I’ll talk about some of the moments that I face while trying to navigate the professional side of things, because they end up being learning moments that allow me to grow and I also know I’m occasionally ridiculous about things. It’s a fun time, and you might learn vicariously from some of my experiences, who knows.
In addition to this lovely blog, I offer a huge variety of services online and have created products that are available for sale (I’m a crafty type, I gotta just DO something with my hands and whatever supplies I have available – which is kind of a lot these days). Here’s a list of my current personal ventures that you can peruse at your pleasure and be sure to bookmark them – there will be lots of uploads coming over the next months that you’ll wanna check out:
Just a small taste of what a felon can do when they put their mind to it! We do this every day and build on what we learn from our failures. Just gotta keep moving forward!
I hope you have an awesome day and stay strong fellow felons! We got this!
