Not that you'd know it from reading this blog, but I write a lot. All day, every day, my job is to create content—or, more accurately, my jobs. Currently, I'm doing recipe editing and copywriting for Din, email marketing for California Wines, and I'm the Food Preservation Expert on About.com. Above and beyond that, I support my husband, realtor dpaul brown, with some blog and newsletter content, as well as my own DIY food site, Punk Domestics. Once in a while, I even manage to pinch out a freelance story or two. So in light of all that, the idea of writing on a personal blog is fairly ludicrous.
Yet, the very reason I started Hedonia nearly 10 years (!) ago is that I needed a place that was wholly mine, where I wrote for, of, and about myself. This is why, as I have done in a few years past, I am undertaking National Blog Post Month (NaBloPoMo), wherein I will post something each day in November.
This is not to say that I will be posting 30 new things on Hedonia. That's just crazy talk. Rather, I am taking this as an opportunity to shine some light on my other projects. I'll be writing about my recent trip to Italy over on Punk Domestics, talking about some fall preserving items on About.com, and even have arranged to do a guest post over on BlogHer.com.
That said, I do have plans to write a few things exclusively here, though I reserve the right to post the occasional Wordless Wednesday. If things go really sideways, it may turn into Mute Monday, Taciturn Tuesday, Thunderstruck Thursday, Fuhgeddaboutit Friday, Silent Saturday, and Shhh! Sunday. But I'll make an honest go of it.
