It’s 2013, people! Woohoo! I love a new year, a new creative canvas. All this American snow makes me feel like everything can be made new. And this year I am especially excited because this blog is going to be growing and changing in big ways.
First, it has a new home (and a new name):
I have loved writing here at “The Good Stuff” and sharing stories from my travels and my neighbourhood. But I’ve been feeling for a while like I wanted to write about some other things too. The reason I search out stories that give me hope is for more than just a sense of well-being and optimism. It’s because they shape how I live. They give me ideas and inspiration and encouragement to live a different way. And I’d like to share some of those more practical stories too – not just the successful ones, but also my failures…
I hope to be travelling less this year than I did in my crazy 2012, so sourcing stories from all over the place will be less easy. The blog will be a place to wrestle with how to live in the middle of the inner city (in our home, affectionately known as “the block”) and be a good neighbour whilst trying not to destroy the planet. Or:
Attempts to live green and simple in the city.
(That’s the tagline).
So please stay tuned to the new blog (everything from this blog has been transferred handily to the archives), and watch out for some new features on green habits and simple living alongside the stories of hope.
Thank you all for reading and following. See you at the new site.
