Allison from The Ponytail Diaries nominated me for the Tour of Blogland. It kind of came at the perfect time, as I’m marking one-year of blogging. I’ll share a bit more about my one-year of blogging next Monday in my 4th Quarterly Report (I know you are at the edge of your seats for that to come out). 🙂 Anniversaries always make me reflective, I think it is good to take stock every once in a while. I love to see what motivates people and how people view the world, which is what is so great about blogging. I like the fact that you get a peek behind the scenes, so to speak, with these kinds of prompts. The Tour of Blogland asks:
What am I working on?
Settling into San Diego and eating and drinking 😉 Kidding, sort of. I’m trying to get back into blogging, as the summer and the move sidetracked it for a while. I’m working on redesigning my site and making it feel a little more me. I have a lot of blog to-do items. I want to be more consistent with my posting and just re-focus my blogging effort.
How does my work differ from others in its genre?
My blog is just me – my life and what P and I are doing. I like to think that brings uniqueness to the table. I’m all over the board in terms of topics, I view my blog as a lifestyle blog meaning it’s whatever I’m doing, learning, thinking, feeling, eating and drinking. 🙂
Why do I write/create what I do?
I wrote the post Why Another Blog about why I started the blog and it still holds true. I wanted to challenge myself, I wanted to document our life and adventures, and I wanted to put the childfree perspective out into Blogland. I felt like there was a gap in blogs for those of us that are childfree.
How does my writing/creating process work?
This question just makes me laugh. I wish I had a process. Basically, since I started the blog, it has felt like a roller-coaster. Some weeks I feel like I’m in control of it and organized and then the next week, I’m behind and scrabbling. Ideally, I would like to have posts completed at least a week in advance, that way I have plenty of time to edit and polish them. I’m the kind of person that needs to take a big step back and “forget” about it to edit my own writing. This rarely happens and then two months later I look back at a post and realize I wrote desert not dessert. 🙂 I’m trying to get a better process together. Most of my posts branch from things I’m doing in life, so they develop organically.
Now for the fabulous bloggers I’m nominating:
