Back in 2005, I started blogging. I didn’t really blog about anything in particular and my blog was mostly just a mix of my daily thoughts – whether I was excited about a trip, wanted to share a product I’d recently fallen in love with (or hated), or tried a new recipe. My blog had no focus, but I loved it. After a few years, my posts started to dwindle from at least one per day to *maybe* a few times a week, as my inspiration faded and life got busy. I felt like without a focus, I had nothing to blog about. My poor, abandoned little blog was left to float around in cyberspace while I turned to other diversions.
I made a few attempts at re-starting a blog by trying to focus things in on my interests, namely photography, cooking and nutrition/health. But then when I couldn’t think of anything to write on the subject at hand, I would lose interest again and my three loyal readers would be, again, removing my blog from their favorites.
The thing is, I really like blogging. I like the ritual of writing and the process of getting my thoughts down. I needed to find a way to blog with enough focus to keep me interested, but not so much that if I didn’t have something to say about, say, food on a particular day, that I could blog about whatever else was on my mind.
I eat a mostly vegan diet, and a very large part of my diet is based on things that are green and leafy. I blend them. I cook them. I eat them raw. I eat them – lots of them – every single day. So I do plan on focusing this blog a bit towards health, and the achievement of better health that has been my focus personally over the past few years.
On Other Things:
I don’t only eat leaves. I also write, run a side photography business, travel, spend time with the almost-Husband, watch trashy TV, consume products, opinionate on just about everything, and am learning to garden. I’ll blog about all of these other things as well as, I’m sure, a lot more.
Let’s see what happens. I’m off to eat some leaves now.
