“I’m just trying to make it in a blog – eat – blog world…”
Clever, right? (I came up with that…haha!) So after several months of blogging, I don’t know if I can legitimately call myself “new” in the world of blogging any longer. At this point, I think that my blog has taken shape as a forum in which I share/discuss 3 general categories of things that interest me: Food (no surprise there!), Sociology (still no surprise…), and Sport/fitness (yet another unsurprising choice).
Food: All things food. In a lot of cases this ends up being highlighted through my “Best Thing I’ve Eaten This Week” posts. I like to share ideas for cooking, and show what I’ve made or eaten recently that I’ve really enjoyed.
Sociology: As a university instructor of sociology (on the way to getting my PhD), it’s no surprise that I tend to see sociological concepts crop up in a variety of places/arenas, and these often find their way into posts. (I also occasionally share teaching ideas/activities…) I generally tend to highlight these kinds of things in a “less-academic” manner, which is nice for me (a bit more relaxed) and hopefully for you, the reader (a bit more approachable). If nothing else, this hopefully makes people stop for a second and think about things in a new/different way…
Sport/fitness: For as long as I can remember, I have been an extremely active person. I participated in all kinds of sports growing up, and continue to participate in as many as possible/available. Along with sport participation, I tend to discuss fitness as well (different things that I’m doing, workouts, ideas, etc.). I also occasionally discuss sport (not as a participant – i.e. the NCAA tournament, IU basketball, the NBA playoffs, football, etc.).
Though these are the three main things that I post on, I do have other miscellaneous posts as well. Some things that find their way into my blog: things that pop up in the news, random advice I have, things that are funny or catch my eye for some reason, or just anything else I may have to say.
I hope that you enjoy reading through the blog and stop by frequently. I always appreciate and enjoy reading comments and thoughts from others, so be sure to comment and pass it along to others so that they can share as well!
