You may remember, the last time that I was here I was doing some really heavy
blog soul searching. I was searching for my passion because that was what all the know it all’s in the blogging world say that you need in order to blog.
I searched high and low for my soul, passion, cheese, whatever the magic buzzword is of the moment. (let’s just call it the stuff that makes you tick) I learned something about myself that was enlightening to say the least.
(The point of this picture will become clear below)
While I like crafting, decorating, thrifting, what have you, it is just something that I do. Like breathing, it is something of a necessity. To live, I have to breath. To decorate and have some semblance of home, I have to craft and thrift because my chosen profession brings in very little money.
Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy the challenge of it. I totally consider the fact that I can look at something ugly and picture a few changes that will make it beautiful a gift. I like being creative, I just hate blogging about it and trying to dress it up as something fabulous.
Where was I? Oh yeah, what I really want to do is direct! No, that wasn’t it.
So what in the world am I passionate about besides dogs, goats and a guy named Art? What has always been a part of my life that I wouldn’t part with? Something that I know a lot about, yet is always changing and expanding in creative ways? What can I do no matter the weather or how sick & rotten I feel?
I read and review books, I mean a lot of books.
(I may be wrong, but I think that my dogs were ostriches separated at birth)
Chew & Digest Books was born way before MurphyGrace.com and I have been dedicating some major time to that long discarded blog. The writing and reading just flows out of me like
Guinness beer water.
The moral of the story is blog about what makes you tick. This will now be a more personal place, as opposed to the all thrifty crafting decorating mish mash. If you read, come visit me at Chew & Digest. If you don’t read, what in the world are you waiting for?
