To help my writing skills, focus my attention and hopefully learn a lot I have started this blog. I have tried this before in the past, trying to focus the topic of my blog to one thing and it didn’t work. This time, I am writing about everything. Plan to use tags well to keep things organized but write about life in general, my hobbies, not the best written book reviews, and whatever else pops in to my head. I do have specific topics I write about on a regular basis, most notably my garden.
The garden is what my blog is mainly about. This is my second year gardening and it has been trial and error all the way. I am gardening in hopes of eating healthier and lessening my strain on the environment. My overall goal is to live a fairly sustainable lifestyle and the blog is sort of my journal in this quest. While I could have just written everything down in a notebook I decided to go this way for a couple of reasons. One, because I will need help, advice, and encouragement. Anyone who has ever had a garden knows its not necessarily that easy to get started and be successful. Two, perhaps the problems I am write about someone else is also having and my blog may help. This may or may not be true. But it helps me. I always felt that the question left unasked is the question left unanswered.
I may write a similar blog post like this from time to time, just to remind myself why I am doing this.
Also, to help with my writing and motivation I am participating in a ‘Zero to Hero’ 30 day exercise being put on by the great people of Word Press, so you will see a post from me every day for the next month, if all goes well. Wish me luck!
