HELLO WORLD!

My name is Laney and I am the woman behind Modern Laine. My daily life is full of schoolwork, crafting content, creating stories and endlessly sharing on social media.

Today is a special day for me. I have been blogging on and off since I was in high school. I once had a blog named Pandamonium (Yes, it was spelled wrong. Yes, I did that on purpose). I later created a blog called Laney Logic. I was lucky if I posted five posts during the year. I just couldn’t stay consistent with it, though I tried so hard and had tons of ideas!

I decided in January of this year I would launch my own blog. It’s taken me almost nine months, but today is the day! Modern Laine is now live! To celebrate the launch I have compiled a list of 16 random facts.
