This is a blog with hair roots in San Francisco and hair tips in your soup. I write about San Francisco, finding meaning in life, literature, and travel. Just to clarify, I know nothing about those topics except for traveling, of which I know a little bit.

If you poke around this blog long enough, you’ll find posts about bats and peanut butter and sandwiches, about Egyptian street puddles and the Simien Mountains in Ethiopia and about San Francisco, and if you stick around, you just might discover my secret.

About the blog’s name: I began writing Snotting Black in 2011 when I moved to Cairo for a year to study Arabic, a place where I did, in fact, snot black because of the dust and pollution. The previous domain name was drevets.com.

About me: My name is Emily Drevets and this is my blog. I am a triplet. No, I do not look like the other two. My triplet sisters are identical, and I am different. Because of this, I traveled the world and moved to San Francisco after spending a year in Egypt. I know exactly what I want out of life, I just have no idea how to get it.

Follow me @drevets. Email me: snottingblack [at] gmail [dot] com.

  2. Hey SB,
    This is BBB. I’ve been out of the blog loop for awhile. I know you travel alot and I’m headed to Italy, Croatia, Spain, etc. and was wondering what the phone tricks are for not racking up a million dollars in charges with texts and whatnot. Have any tips? If you don’t what to enumerate here, you can contact me @ lesbloch@gmail.com.
    Thanks and see you around SF!
