I’ve been struggling for a hot minute about what to do with this space. A very hot minute…ever since I’ve carved out this section of the internet for myself in fact.
I don’t feel as bookish as I did when I first started creating content for the internet world. Don’t get me wrong, I still love books! Books are the support pillars of my life. It’s just between graduate school (MLIS student here) and work (library employee) I’m surrounded by books so in my free time sometimes the absolute last thing I want to do is talk about books.
Now…I know this sounds very familiar to the things that I’ve said before when I’ve deleted everything off this site. But, I’ve never actually followed through with it. Every time I’ve always felt that I had to include bookish content so I always started off my restarts with bookish content.
However, this time it’s going to be different fosho.
So. What am I going to use this space for?
- Hiking Themed Content:
I love nature. I love being outdoors. I love the wealth of National and State Parks that are near my house and I love hitting the trails. I also love challenging people’s misconceptions that people of color don’t “belong” outdoors. Except to see some trail guides, photos from hikes, and me chronicling my attempt to do the 52 Hike Challenge and the 365 Mile Challenge.
- Creative Writing:
Occasionally I dabble in writing short stories and “poetry” and occasionally I wish I had a space to post the things that I’ve written. Oh wait. I have that space. It’s here. So, brace yourself for some random mediocre writing that made me feel good as I got it out of my head.
- General Lifestyle Writing
Yo, sometimes shit goes down that I want to discuss online. Imagine this catagory being the more adult version of a middle schooler’s Xanga/LiveJournal (am I dating myself horribly by mentioning those?).
- Book Themed Content
Look, I said books are the pillar of my life. I love books. LOVE books. Just…don’t expect everything to be strictly books anymore ok, thanks.
There we have it. Currently I have the goal of posting at least once a week, but we’ll see how that goes.
