I created this blog in 2008, whilst living in San Francisco, as a way to share my journey and keep in touch with family and friends. At the time, social media was on the verge of a tipping point. Status updates were crunched into 140 characters and metadata was a curious experiment. I was working for a start-up company, very 'silicon valley' like, and tweeting, flickring (until yahoo intervened) and fondling more Apple devices than my hands could hold.
Little did I know that my blog would evolve into a platform for me to share my love and ever-growing passion for health, wellness, and nutrition. Wheeee! Suddenly, my SLR camera was always in standby mode and within reach at the kitchen table. Tweet, then eat, no questions asked. What a blog snob. Every post was a delicious digital snack, releasing tension and refueling dreams every time I clicked "publish". Cut, copy, paste, like, save, share, type, preview, publish and so it went, something like that.
This blog has travelled around the world, gushing over my kitchen experiments (some #fails), wildest dreams, and romantic musings. Floating in the blogosphere, it's documented my digital footprint of joy, heartache, surprise, and fear. At times it has exploded with silliness or suffered writers block, caused by caring too much of what others might think - I can't post that, can I? People will judge me! Fuck it - just do it!
However, somewhere along the way, my blog lost its itch and desire to speak. Me, my blog and I, have so much to share, but we're neither lit up nor inspired to share it on Forever Addicting anymore. I'm not inclined to consistently share recipes and don't feel like writing without a clear theme or intention, so what's a girl to do?
Create a new blog, that's what! On the brink of a move from Melbourne to Vancouver, it's time for a new start.
Thank you for reading, following, tweeting, connecting, and sharing your energy with me. Playing in the digital realm with you has been heaps fun (aussie, aussie, oy oy! I kid. Kind of). Catch you soon, somewhere, on a new .com wave.
All my love,
Do you hear, do you hear, that sound?
It's the sound of the lost gone found
It's the sound of a mute gone loud
It's the sound of a new start
