DeniseMcGill is the “Rock Around the Clock” 50′s Contributor on Squidoo

selfportraitcharcoalToday we’re excited to introduce you to DeniseMcGill.  She’s our “Rock Around the Clock” 50′s Contributor on Squidoo.

Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
I’m the “Rock Around the Clock” 50′s contributor. I love 50′s music, 50′s TV, 50′s movies, 50′s clothes and 50′s diners. There is something really charming about petticoats and poodle skirts. I even knit cardigans for my husband. It’s all good. As a matter of fact, I’m a 50′s baby.

Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
I guess I have always loved black and white movies and TV. There is something artistic and creative about it. I remember my Mom singing with the radio and I learned the words to “Moon River” from her beautiful voice. But most of all, I really enjoyed Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley. They were charming shows about the joys of the 50′s.

Who influenced you most?
I think my mother had the most influence in my life. If she didn’t like Elvis, I didn’t listen to Elvis. If she loved Ballet and art, I loved ballet and art. She sewed all our clothes to save money in the 50′s, I did the same with my children. She taught me to knit and crochet. She was and always will be, my hero and mentor.

    The 50′s will always be one of the best decades ever. A group of my university colleagues and I dressed up as Laverne and Shirley characters for a fifties sock hop. We had so much fun (and won the costume contest). Love that portrait of you. Congrats on your new role and feature! I know you will rock it!

    Congratulations on your Contributor Role with Squidoo. The world was different back; perhaps difficult but in many ways simpler. Loved all the shows you listed as well!

    Hello Denise. Very nice to meet you.I too was born in the late 50s. It really was a different ear. This is going to be one of my favorite niches.
