Who is Delaney?

You’re probably wondering what’s going on behind the screen over here if you found yourself on this page. Well I am just a 23 year old girl who works a full time job at a software company and spends all her spare hours building this blog!

Other than blogging, I spend a lot of time hanging out with my friends. I’m a super spontaneous spaz and am always down to grab drinks with some of my favorite people or book a trip for some adventure. 

My hometown is south of Seattle, Washington around Puyallup and Lake Tapps. I went to high school in Sumner and then went to study accounting and finance at Washington State University. I made a ton of connections there and realized that I have always had a passion for people, positive influence, photography, and fashion. I have tried to explore all those passions with my social media and website.

One passion I have pursued that may be shown less on my website is my photography of others. I have expressed blogs on self-timer and self-creation methods, but only recently have found a love for creating with or without myself in the images. I love finding inspiration in light, color, and people and capturing it. I also have dabbled in Adobe Creative Cloud and specifically LightRoom making presets.

Why Blog?

I started this blog as a way to connect with others and to encourage them to be their best selves. All blog posts have the core purpose of enhancing the lives of others, whether that be in mental wellness, physical appearance, personal confidence, or gaining new skills and inspiration. I think that everyone has their own unique way of touching the world and that the more we each dabble in that uniqueness, the more confident we become.

One day I hope to make this blog my foundation for running my own business, be financially free, and positively impacting others (my passion). You being here helps me get to that goal and I seriously am so grateful for you contribution to my dream.

Like I mentioned, I tried to really leverage my personal passions in my posts and truly do care about how well that resonates with my readers. Please leave comments and feedback for me to make your experience even better! I want to know.

What's Weed With Del?

In December of 2018, I was sitting at the champagne bar at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. It had been a long day at the largest cannabis conference in the world, MJ Bizcon. As I sit and network with other professionals, something quite strange and completely incredible happened. All these people in suits and ties while drinking champagne started to pull out edibles and share them with the individuals around them. Yes, edibles (from a legal dispensary of course). This was when I knew, as someone who never had been a drug user or a “stoner”, that there was value in this industry that was not being shown to the large majority of the population. From then on, at my job and at home, I felt a new purpose of my eduction in the industry. It became a passion.

Weed Wednesday With Del started because of my time spent in the legal cannabis industry working as a compliance analyst at a software company. My primary role was to learn and read cannabis regulations and document them in a concise manner so that I could teach our software product team what the rules were in various jurisdictions so that the software was programmed compliantly for our clients. We had clients all over North America and even in other countries such as South Africa, Columbia, Canada, and Europe. It was extremely fascinating being in such a fresh, explosive, and completely taboo industry that was impacting people all over the world.
