Ask and you shall receive. People want me to blog? For all of the crazies out there, who are interested in my life and what I have to say, here you go! I feel loved.
Now, how does one approach a first post? I should start with an exploration of the events that got me here today. It all started with a direct message from a twitter* friend that said "There is a christine love fest on Triscoop. Check it out. People are touching themselves while listening to the sugar podcast".
Yup. So naturally I check out Triscoop** and find that someone has started a thread entitled Bring Back the Holistic Guru. As I read I feel like I'm getting a giant virtual hug! It really made my week. And in that thread, the fact that I do not have my own blog was highlighted, reminding me that I need to move that to the top of my priority list.
So here I am, setting up my account on blogspot, and it is time to choose a title. Well I want the awesomest title imaginable but my creativity is letting me down. So I cry out for help in the form of an email, a contest to name my blog, sent to some creative and silly homies.
Well the responses came immediately. The first:
Christizzle the Shizzle
Then I get:
"what will the blog cover? - consider everything and then prioritize for us. If just nutrition, I'd choose 'Eat Me Better'" (a pun on my website www.liveandeatbetter.com)
Then: a suggestion that relates to the circus and wearing tights and walking on a wire.
A suggestion to include an image of me running towards a happy smiling cow with a butcher knife, but the cow doesn't mind because he has lived a happy organic life.
So I am still in the same 'untitled' boat, but I got a few laughs out of it.
*Twitter- a fantastic website that allows you to be completely up to date on the most important things that happen in friends and strangers lives. You will never feel lonely knowing that so and so just stepped on an ant and that someone else is thinking peanut butter for lunch.
**Triscoop- a website devoted to nourishing your inner triathlete.
