My internet life before facebook
I so don't do that anymore.
I manage to get up a recipe on a Foodie Friday here or there. I might post a Tuesday Review from time to time, but it's not the hugest surprise if I forget about the blog altogether for a month or more. I'm a girl who's excited by the idea of consistency, but I'm just about the opposite of a German train.
It's recently occurred to me that the time I used to spend on the internet blogging has all been directed to witty (or attempting to be witty) facebook and twitter status updates. But I think it was the regular blogging that made me a better writer.
This week, despite all the school work and book work on my plate (that I've gotten pretty good at whining about regularly), I've been drawn back to the blog. Who knows why exactly, or how long it'll last, but I'll go with it for now. (It's funny to think that 4 years ago there were times when it was hard to limit myself to one blog post a day.)
Anyhow, you know who else is exciting me with their blogging of late?:
* Alicia Silverstone (yes, the one and only blond vegan bombshell)
* Melissa (who has been torturing my jealous streak with tales of her travels in Italy)
* the always lovely and prolific Lisa
* Marika (my food stylist soon-to-be)
* local foods chef Deborah Madison
Now, here's what's going on, off the top of my head:
* I've got 50 days until my last school assignment for the semester is due, and next semester (thank heavens! as my mum would say) I have only 2 classes instead of 4.
* I am knowing that I've got to embrace a life of studies (and remember that the life of a midwife will eventually follow) for now if I'm gonna bust out of this feeling like I'm being forced to care about Vancouver Style referencing, and randomized control trials and the integumentary system (which, for you non-anatomy types, is skin and other layers of yer bod).
* I'm dancing with the idea of offering cooking classes out of my home in the new year.
* I'm more excited at the moment about coming up with ideas for book #3 than I am interested in okaying the edits for book #2 (I must apologize to Susan, my editor).
* I am constantly fantasizing about running away to Vermont to drive through the beautiful fall colours there.
So, what do you think - should I go back to writing more often?
If I did would you read it?
