Seeing as I have a monster conference call starting in 15 minutes about god knows what (sounds like blah, blah, blah to me), I think I may have some time carved out to write a blog post. On my own blog! I have been writing, but not exactly on my own site. Recently, I met a great gal in Chicago who founded this site that basically tells people where to go, whether visiting or residing. She asked if I would like to contribute, and of course I couldn't turn down an awesome offer like that! So I started writing for the North Neighborhoods of Chicago on http://www.theLocalTourist.com. (Save that in your bookmarks- and visit often, please :)) Which is great, because I am learning about how to best attract an audience, plus write about where I live and all of the cool things that there are to do. Is a win- win. Unfortunately, I had to keep my day job (which most of you know does not suit me at all) and my hours got increased, so my personal blogging took a backseat. But recently BF started a blog and reminded me why I love doing this so much- writing is my outlet; right, wrong, or indifferent. I guess this means I have decided to say eff the backposts I have stored on my desktop and just start writing again. As always, unedited and probably super random. If you want something more polished, check out The Local Tourist.
Green living! I am happy to see recycling and doing more with less make the front pages of the news
Bridesmaid season is officially over for me. That means that in the past two weeks that I haven't had to spend worrying about how I am going to look in someone else's mantle pictures have been spent slacking off at the gym, drinking beer and eating delicious things like pizza. oops, really need to work on that. Someone else needs to get married so I can keep it together!
I simply cannot wait for Rothbury music fest next year. Best weekend ever! I am still rocking my bracelet. . . .
