Why did I decide to start this blog?

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.
