Hi, I’m Sam: owner and writer of The Nail That Sticks Up. I started this blog in August of 2010 with the intention of writing about “things that matter,” people and ideas who are changing the world for the better. The blog evolved quite a bit since then, with more of a focus on animal rights and veganism (two causes very important to me), but I still occasionally write about my other interests, including heavy metal, fitness, sustainability, and various social causes. As my life moves in different directions, the frequency of posts has slowed, but I have no plans to remove the blog from the internet due to the residual traffic it receives, and niche content that readers still enjoy.

Unless otherwise specified, no posts on this blog are sponsored or paid for by anyone. For more information on why I choose the name “the nail that sticks up,” see the first post, “Inception.”
