Well, you have to start somewhere. I’ve thought about starting a blog off and on for a while. I read a few of them most days and figured if I liked them so much, that I should start my own.
But what would I write about? What ‘type’ of blogger would I be? I’m not a runner by any means. Although I’ve run two races since moving here, I haven’t done much running since that second race. I try and get to yoga once a week but that doesn’t always happen. I did try Bikram yoga for the first time on Tuesday and oh man it was intense! I don’t come up with recipes of my own or cook anything fancy for dinner. I don’t repurpose my weekend flea market trip finds nor am I much of a fashionista (I leave that to my younger sister). Rather than focusing on all the things I’m not, I’ll just write what I am, which will probably be a little bit of everything.
Mostly, I want to keep track of all the things for wedding planning as well as get into more consistent healthy living habits so I feel and look my best on the big day and beyond. I also want to chronicle my life in a new city, living with my fiancé for the first time and making new friends.
Thinking of a name for your blog much harder than you’d think! I wanted it to be something that allowed me to continue the blog after the wedding if I wanted. I also wanted something original and that didn’t box me in to a certain type of blog. Or course I made a list of some possibilities. Chronicles of a List Maker was born! For me, making lists keeps me organized. Whether it’s a list of things to accomplish on a certain day or what groceries to buy or what events I have going on during the week, I make a list.
The next question was when to write my first post? I thought I’d start on a Monday, or at the beginning of the month, or even on some milestone date, like one year away from our wedding. But if I waited for the ‘right’ time then there never would be one.
So, I’m starting today, Friday May 10th.
