Hi there, I’m Erin Wiggle. Thirty years ago, I was born into the great city of Jacksonville, FL and to this day, I still call the First Coast home.
(That’s a picture of me at one of my favorite Jacksonville treasures – Chamblin Bookmine. I could browse the shelves there for hours!)
Growing up I complained about how little Jacksonville had to offer but over the years, my perspective on Northeast Florida has changed as I’ve watched my native city evolve into a multicultural metropolis full of rich history and modern culture.
In 2009, I received my bachelor’s degree in Journalism with a minor in Art History from the University of North Florida. Through my passion for writing and the arts, I’ve set out to curate a comprehensive guide to the First Coast and neighboring cities while also providing a glimpse into my life.
I’m a Sailor’s wife, outdoor enthusiast, self-proclaimed pizza snob and overall foodie, SpiderMan fangirl, wannabe bookworm, and sneaker collector. And I’m almost always wearing sunglasses and the color black.
If you’re new here, you might want to start at Where Wiggle Went – an interactive map of the First Coast with geotags that link to articles and blurbs that I’ve written to guide you around the city.
Wanna chat? You can find me on most social media sites as erinwiggle, like Instagram and Snapchat, my favorites!
But enough about me, let’s talk about MY BLOG.
