Back in January when I relaunched the blog as Ginger & co. there was a specific reason for it being “Ginger and Company.” Obviously, this is my blog, and I’m the ginger, and most of the blog is my advice and my tips and my experiences. But I know that I don’t know everything, and other people have awesome stories and tips to share as well.
While the contributors (or the company, if we’re going to be a bit cheesy) took a break during the summer because I thought I wouldn’t be able to blog and I just wasn’t focused, August came and I knew I wanted to bring them back and make them stronger than before. So I put out a call for some new awesome ladies to join me, and while I took a long time to actually pick them and let them know, today, I’m really excited to introduce you to the five ladies that will be The Company.
We have three new ladies and two ladies who have written for me in the past.

Amanda is a sister of Alpha Omicron Pi and in her spare time she enjoys reading, making YouTube videos, watching Pretty Little Liars, blogging, acting, listening to Nick Jonas, and cooking.Â Follow her on Twitter & Instagram.
LeahÂ is a Marketing Professional who lives in Athens, Georgia and works at Terrapin Beer Co. Her favorite things include blogs, craft beer, wine, cheese and her dog: Gus. When sheâ€™s not working her day job, sheâ€™s blogging over at Life, Love, and Coffee StainsÂ and sharing her craft beer consumption at The Craft Beer Project. She graduated from Wake Forest University in 2014, and is currently still trying to figure out how to be a real person, but has enough experience at it to share her advice (so others hopefully donâ€™t have to make the same dumb choices to learn a lesson).Â Follow Leah on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, & Pinterest.
For most of Alli’s life she’s have been known as the little â€œfashionistaâ€. Fashion is herÂ â€œthingâ€.

The Old Company
Hailing from the Chicken Capital of the World (Gainesville, GA), Lydia hopes to someday change the world with my writing. Or, at the very least, make people laugh with it. Until then, I spend my time at Wofford College as: an English major with a concentration in Creative Writing; member of Purple Scarf Society, RUF, and Wofford Pen Pals; eno enthusiast; Netflix addict; cat lover; feminist; and proud sister of Kappa Alpha Theta.
LaneyÂ is a senior at the lovely and historical College of Charleston, where she is majoring in English with a concentration in Creative Writing and minor in Communication.Â She loves trying out new apps and reading up on the latest technology news and gadgets, especially if they are from Apple!
When she graduates college she plans to go to graduate school and find a job working with a non-profit and help give those who need helping finding a voice for their life experiences.
You can check outÂ Laney‘s blog, Modern Laine, where she talks about a little bit of everything. Topics include pop culture, college and life in general.
And of course, there’s me, Laura, but you already knew that. Be sure to stick around to see what all these ladies have to offer Ginger & Co.
