So here I am again. Starting a new blog. Shocked? Probably not. I have a lot of neglected web spaces – but I miss all of them and it seems like so much work to get them all going again. I have a lot of little niche places where I tried to do different things, but there’s no public place I have that can be all of me at once and I want that. (Facebook tried to be that, but it’s not the same.)
I miss livejournal. I miss tracking my life and writing every day. I miss working on snappedinsin.com. I miss having a place where I share photos of my adventures. I miss my “I never” blog. I miss having a place to revel in trying new things and pushing myself past my comfort zone. Then there was that big plan to document my gardening that died off quickly and that “live loud challenge” thing I wanted to start – I miss being able to share my experience and intentions for my passions. (I also have my more professional domain, which is also neglected, but I want to keep my personal life somewhat separate from that.) I obviously need a new blog to take care of like I need a new hole in my head, but none of these places I own really fits what I’m looking to start here. I miss doing all of these things, but don’t want to try and go revive a bunch of different places just to express what I’m looking for. So I’m going to give this a go. (I forgot I even had this domain, so it’s nice to finally use it for something.)
So here I am. With intention. With passion. I’m at a time in my life when I need a place to remind me of how proud I am of my life, and how much I want to bring to my life in the future. So this is it. This will be the place where I will live loud, and share my adventures, thoughts, excitements, goals, achievements, worries, fears, bragging, photos, political opinions, idiocies, complaints, and sometimes funny things I find on the internet. And maybe some typos and bad grammar, because I’m not perfect. But you’re welcome to read, lurk, comment and share your own experience as well. I am grateful for every interaction.
