Today I want to share my love for a very inspiring person, feminist, extremely talented singer, artist, and author, Amanda Palmer.
I first saw her at a concert of her former band The Dresden Dolls, when I was a teenager. I lost track of her until I found out that she is married to the equally wonderful and talented Neil Gaiman who some of you may know as the author of American Gods and the Sandman comic books, for example. My love for Amanda Palmer was rekindled. I started to listen to her solo music, read her poems and follow her on Twitter. There’s a wonderful App which allows you to read her blog, listen to her music, and get in touch with her. Make sure to check it out.
Amanda Palmer’s book The Art of Asking was published in 2015. The idea originated in Palmer’s TED talk which is really worth watching. You will surely learn a thing or two. You can watch the talk here.
If you’re interested in her work, and found her speech as inspiring as I did, go and buy her book to learn more.
