Blogging as Practice...Blogging as Therapy?

I've tried my hand at the narrowly-defined-topic blog, which I enjoyed greatly--until I tired of the topic and had little else to say. I blogged about frugal living, which is a subject near and dear to my heart as my husband and I are trying to be good stewards of our money all while he's going to school for his PhD (so essentially, we are living on one income). However, as a result of blogging about such, I found that my reputation among my friends became of the "stingy miser" who doesn't want to part with any of her money. And, once I ran out of things to say about frugal living, I was left with a very dry blog.

In thinking about my life lately, I've been considering what kind of person I want to be and figure out how to get there. I've always wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember, but over the past four years or so, I've managed to get caught up in the hustle-and-bustle of everyday life, and I noticed some months ago that I've hardly written a thing since I finished college.

As a result, I'm starting up this blog...my inner thoughts and ramblings with an overarching theme of my ever-evolving journey toward living a more simple and natural live, all while trying to somehow achieve the dream of becoming a writer. If you're still here, I thank you for reading!
