I’ve been thinking of the theme of this blog a lot recently—actually, since I started it up. I assumed it would take some time for a logical focal point to be revealed, and it has. I’m still not sure what that is.
At this point, I’m envisioning/fantastically self-describing as a sort of Iron-Chef-meets-ultimate-slacker-meets-expat-chick-with-a-heady-dash-of-nerdy-brain-food-and-anecdotes… I’m not sure that’s a sell, but it’s where I am at the moment.
I acknowledge this ‘blah’ lack of conviction and focus, which is why I’ve only sent the link of the blog to a small group of friends. I’m less self-conscious knowing that relaxed, supportive (and lets face it, not at all invested) people will, from time-to-time, remember to stumble over the the site and (hopefully) read a few blogs and give me some feedback and ideas. What would you like to see more of?
For a similar reason, I’ve left proper names (of people) off the site. Even my dog remains ‘dog’ or ‘puppy’ or ‘lil dude’… My shout-outs are to girlfriends in various cities. That might change eventually, but for now, I see no benefit to be added by a proper name or two.
To end, I’m including a touch of self-comfort, à la Rousseau.
However great a man’s natural talent may be,
the act of writing cannot be learned all at once.
