1 year


This blog has been live for 1 year as of January 19th. That was fast.

At first I wasn't really sure what the focus was going to be. I tried keeping to something of a schedule- writing weekly themed posts and sharing pretty things I found online, but let's be serious. I am miserable at sticking to schedules and when it comes to sharing awesome online finds? I'm not even a good pinterester (although I do really love the idea of it.)

Sometimes I write for miles, but more often I just flood the place with photos.

Sometimes they're photos I spend hours setting up for..

but more often they're photos I just manage to catch..
I like documenting. I like sharing. I like making and I like remembering. I think I'm going to continue the way I've been going.. which is no way in particular. With the flow I suppose.

I'm reminding myself of a "free spirit" as I write this. I would be honored to be considered a free spirit, although I'm not so sure I am.. maybe I am? I don't know. Someone did call me granola once and I was so excited. Granola.. "someone who loves the outdoors and constantly does activities in it." Thank you urban dictionary for that enlightening bit if wisdom.

Yup.. this is probably why I usually stick to my photos and not so much my writing.

I was always really good at writing "random streams of consciousness." Ha. I remember learning about that in school.. they never should have mentioned it because I've convinced myself it's proper writing.. since I learned it in school and all. Oh well. I also remember capillary action. And that Lebanon was once owned by France. Shoot, I think that's it.

No, I must remember more.. I just need to be prompted.. like in a trivia game or something.
Yes. That's it.

I have no idea how my blog's birthday got me writing about capillary action. Actually, I do.. because I can reread my thoughts.. see? Remembering. My reason for blogging.  It's such a nice thing.

  16. wow, you've really established this blog so quickly, i didn't realise it was so young! (i love coming here for inspiration!) Totally get where you're coming from re the scheduling/planning - i focussed my first blog on regular writing based posts, thinking that was what "fashion journalists" would do.. then i realised i was including a lot of foodie ideas, & then the photos just took over! so i definitely think it works best when you develop a blog organically, working with whatever medium inspires you..

    Happy blog birthday!
