I think we all have something to say and that we should blog from the heart. It's not a popularity contest and we should blog with passion and as much honesty as we choose to share LOL. I also think Sonia made a great point about apologising about our blogs here.
Not all blogs can be 1950's sugar pie happiness. I'm another blogger who feels that peak oil is important. Mr B and I have every intention of living off the grid in the future. But I'm also a mum with a multiple allergy child, so cooking takes up way too much of my life. Hence you will see a fair bit of that on this blog.
I'm also learning new skills as I want to be as self sufficient as I can be. I'm a crappy knitter but I am improving with practice. I spend far too much time being bossed around by a 3.5 year old but that's my choice as a SAHM. I'm also passionate about day to day things like unstructured play, and waldorf / montessori play ideas for children; being plastic and toxic free; and my love of gardening grows all the time (and I so didnt start off as an outdoors girl).
This is me - I'm not looking for approval, or to be the same as the majority, or to win a popularity context. I love being part of this big group of free thinking interesting women and men blogging around the world.
Come back ladies we need the wide and varied contributions of many to this lovely blogland!! Write the things you'd like to read and discuss in the world, we'll all be better for it.
