About me

I can talk or write about anything, but writing about myself is always difficult. I love animals and I don’t eat them. I love words. I love expression. I’m from New York. Born and raised. Puerto Rican. My heart is like the beat of a bongo. Simple. Complex. Flawed. I’m SJP’s biggest groupie. When I’m hungry, art and music feed my soul. Spiritual not religious. Irreverent. Outspoken. Broken. Strong. Stubborn. Opinionated. Humble. A good friend. Lesbian. Hater of deadbeat fathers. Lover of life. Natural. Nature calms me. The sky speaks to me. I am a million things. Not all of them pretty. I am me.

  1. Hi Vanessa
    Just bumped into your website, really good stuff on coping with stress! I am a therapist based in Penzance here in the UK, running workshops and 121 sessions, specialising in up-skilling my clients to help them better cope with anxiety and low mood. I was wondering if I might be able to use the stressed man image you have, to go on some handouts I am pulling together to try and engage men, who are painfully difficult to engage and get to admit they have a stress problem. The tone of the picture is perfect for the area I practice iin.
    Keep up the excellent work!
    Kind regards

    I was interested in doing a media buy on your site at http://www.stankcheese.com. How much traffic do you receive and what are your rates?


  3. Hey Team Stank Cheese,

    Hope you are having a great summer! I work at a native advertising and branding company called Cooperatize (www.cooperatize.com) based in NYC and our goal is to help bloggers like you generate revenue from writing engaging sponsored stories. From taking a look at your blog, I think you would be a great fit for our platform. Read recent reviews about us from current bloggers using Cooperatize (www.facebook.com/Cooperatize/reviews)!

    What differentiates us from other “blogger networks” you may have worked with in the past? We actually encourage you to have full creative control over the content creation and despise “sales-y” and overly promotional posts. A couple more things about how we help you:

    • Get paid instantly after publishing the sponsored story (via PayPal)
    • Receive relevant story opportunities with brands in-line with your blog’s theme and audience (no spammers or shady companies)
    • Standardized rules around disclosure of the sponsored story to prevent any Google penalties (all links tagged as “nofollow”)
    • Entire draft process handled through the platform with clear expectations from the brand

    Does this sound interesting to you? If so, please register your blog at http://www.cooperatize.com as a “Publisher” to get started. Still not convinced?
