Hello, everyone! It’s December 26th, known to some as the saddest day of the year—the day that has the longest wait until next Christmas. But this year, the sorrow the day brings will luckily be lessened by one special fact…it’s the official opening day of my blog!
WAIT…WHO ARE YOU?
Allow me to introduce myself to the world. My name is Sophia Maryam Small. I’m a dreamer, an optimist, a Jesus-believer, and a tea-drinker. Sometimes I get a little bit obsessive with books—especially when it comes to The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen or The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. Someday, I want to live globally working as an international journalist.
This isn’t my first blog. You may have seen me previously at sageallaway.com under a pseudonym. Besides that, I’ve also kept a blog about dolphins when I was ten, a book blog under the name “Brooke Worm” when I was twelve, and a couple of other strange things I had around the years.
WHY START A BLOG?
I started Tea-Stained Adventures as an internet haven for me to connect with others and express myself. It’s for those who want to make every day an adventure. It’s for those who want to make everything special, and a little guide to help those who don’t know how. In other words, it’s for those who wander but are not lost.
WHEN AND WHAT WILL YOU BE POSTING?
The three main categories used here are “reading,” “wandering,” and “wonders.” If you want to learn more about what that means, please visit my About page.
I will be posting a minimum of once a week, rotating between those categories.
AND WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR THE READERS?
Hello there, reader! It means SO MUCH to me that you’ve come and hopped along on this little rollercoaster of a website. I dearly hope you enjoy your stay!
AND…*drum roll*…A GIVEAWAY!
To celebrate this lovely opening, I would like to announce that I will be hosting an international giveaway!
The lucky winner will receive:
- ONE copy of The Boy Who Steals Houses by C.G. Drews
- ONE “Women-Owned Tea Brands Box” from Sipsby.com

Keep on wandering,
