Taylor Connect


I’m Ashley, I’m 25 and I live in Chicago. Ask any of my friends or coworkers to describe me and I guarantee “Taylor Swift” will be the first words out of their mouth. I’ve been a fan since 2006, but Taylor and the entire Swiftie community started to mean so much more to me during the Speak Now Tour. Inspired to be Fearless, I decided to fly to Kentucky by myself to go to the Lousiville show on 10.11.11. I did not know a single person, but sat outside the arena all day and by the end of it had a bunch of awesome new friends. I started getting more active on TC and Twitter and now know all these amazing people that I would never have known were it not for our Taylor connection.

In April 2013 I co-founded the podcast “Swiftcast” – a free show on iTunes all about Taylor and her fans. Check us out on TC - http://taylorswift.com/users/swiftcast13

After the RED tour, I’ll have seen Taylor in concert 17 times.

I’m finally meeting Taylor for the first time on 9/7/13 in Saint Paul, MN and I can’t wait to hug her and thank her for being exactly who she is, and the person I can always depend on to make me happy no matter what. I love her so much.

I work in marketing for a college search website and love my job, but the music industry is my passion and I’m hoping to one day work on the marketing and promotion side of a record label or music company. Nashville is my favorite place in the world and I try to go there whenever I can.

I love glitter, coffee, headbands, driving with the windows down, concerts in general, and all of you on TC :) I’d love to talk to you!

  1. I’ll never forget the first time I heard the name Taylor Swift. It was summer 2007. I had just finished my freshman year of college and was dealing with the breakup of my first significant relationship. I was on the phone with my friend one night explaining how I felt about that situation, and he said “This reminds me of a song I just heard” which was Tim McGraw. From that day on I...

    This is a really random question, but did you ask Taylor for a hugging photo or did she just do it? Because if I ever get to meet her I want a hugging photo too but I wouldn't know how to bring it up haha x

    I'm so happy that you finally got to meet Taylor! I remember jumping up and down of joy when you said it on swiftcast. You so deserved it!

    I hope I get my chance in December! Meeting her would be the best thing on the planet.

    I love your blog - but I was so stupid, it was only after reading it properly rather than just scanning it that I realised (LDO) that you were on TC. Hence the friend request.

    I'm not making any special effort to meet up with TC people when I go to Nashville in September, but if you're anywhere close in the queue or the pit (have you got pit tickets or just 'normal' tickets?) than hopefully I'll get a chance to say hi. :)
