I’m a complete virgin when it comes to blogging. I’ve never tried it before and I’ve only read a very limited amount of blogs. I’ve never had a reason to blog before, never had a project that it would make sense to work on through a blog.
But now I’ve found one, and that project is the main reason for me starting this blog.
When I was a kid I was very interested in enviromental issues, animal rights, self-sufficience and things like that. We had chicken in our backyard, grew our own potatoes and had solar-cells on the roof to heat up our water. Then I started in gymnasium, after that right into working-life, moved out and suddenly other things became more important.
Recently I started reading again, something I haven’t really done since I was younger, and I stumbled upon Jonathan Foers “Eating Animals”. That book reminded me about all those opinions and ideologies I have, and like to talk about, but that I never actually live after. I decided to go through them one by one, with critical eyes and a open mind, and decide to live them out or change my mind. I don’t want to be a hypocrite. I don’t want to preach about organic food while I’m eating a BigMac. I want to decide which roads to follow, considering all the different aspects of consumerism.
There’s 3 reasons for me to start this blog:
1) To force myself to do this project in a organized way
2) To practise my written english
3) To maybe inspire others and/or get some feedback
On the page “My Mission” I have listed the different topics I’ll go through to reach my goal. There’s quite a few, some of them I already have a strong opinion about, some of them I know nothing about. This is going to be an exciting trip.
