For my first assignment, I shall attempt to answer “Who I am and why I’m here.” I have made a couple of posts prior to enrolling the blogging 101 course, but realized I have not actually answered the question in either of them.
I am a female human living on planet Earth. I currently reside in the suburban Midwestern U.S., but spent much of last 18 months living in a community of farmers and environmental educators in Northwest Connecticut. I am here learning to write a blog because I decided I want an audience to help me sort through issues of sustainability, science, self-determination (and other things that don’t necessarily begin with “s”) that have been fermenting in my brain for awhile.
I am interested in myriad and varied things, which unfortunately do not always fit into useful blogging categories. Some examples of categories: Book Reviews, Cool Science Things, Nifty Places, Noms, Fiber Art (Knitting/Crocheting), Coloring (Abstract art in colored pencil or markers). Some examples of Tags: Worm Bins, Environment, Pickles, Self-Determination, Being a Grown-up, Chickens, Tea.
My prose tends to be prolix, my meanings obscured by puns or other forms of wordplay. I delight in the dustiest denizens of forgotten vocabulary lists and am occasionally guilty of the abuse of a perfectly good language. This is something I need to work on – hence the blog and the need for occasional feedback from other human persons. (If you are an AI providing useful feedback, you probably pass the Turing Test, so I’m not asking any more questions.)
