About


525header2 AboutHi, I’m Lyn, the writer of 525,600 Minutes!  525,600 is the number of minutes in a year. If you’ve ever watched the movie or the play Rent, you’ve probably heard the song “Seasons of Love” and how it talks about how we spend those 525,600 minutes.  Here’s the link if you’ve never heard the song.

I was born and raised in Tennessee and currently reside in the Peach State. I love the South, but I wouldn’t mind living closer to the water. If I didn’t live in the south, I’d love to live in southern California somewhere along the coast.

My blog is about EVERYTHING. It’s a lifestyle blog. I will be writing about whatever interests me at the time.  I love lots a things, so hopefully that will keep things interesting.

I work in the insurance field by day and write at night. I recently starting niche blogging/affiliate marketing and I love it. It’s a venue that satisfies my love of writing and researching.

In a nutshell, I’m just someone trying to build the best life possible for myself while appreciating the process and being forever grateful what I have.  There are so many things that I love about life and I plan to make the most of all of my 525,600 minutes
